    Don't mind the corrections I made with some of the quotes, the WT obviously doesn't proofread for accuracy

    Under the article about "are you convinced you have the truth" they say this about disfellowshippings.....

    "Thus, during the modern-day history of Jehovah’s Witnesses, relatively few many have had to be been expelled from the Christian fellowship because they would not conform to God’s the governing body's standards. "

    THIS IS A GOOD ONE!....Under an article about reaching out, (since they need to replace all those waking up, they give some tips on how to get promoted), my favorite quote..... " Love all the work you are given to do in the congregation, including sweeping the floor."

    Not that the WT is any bastion of thinking these days, but that article as a whole is one of the worst I've seen in a long, long time.

    You don't need to go back further than twelve months to find everything in this magazine repeated.

    There must be some real problems in the congregations with such a need to keep repeating specific directions.

    I was mistaken for a moment in thinking that I was reading the simplified version.

    Other then in the Sept 2014 WT of the simplified edition "missing" the article about 'reaching out' (I guess they don't want people who use the simplified version 'reaching out'), the simplified and study edition seem pretty much identical.

    But I'm surprised about them not having the 'reaching out' article in the simplified version. I suppose they think that "sweeping floors" requires somebody with an IQ too high if they need to use the simplified version.

    They meant sweeping under the rug....

    Thanks EOM I was going to compare them myself because you can't get more simplified that the Study Edition.

    This is the reason they gave for producing the simplified version

    The simplified edition was designed to help those who attend English congregation meetings at the Kingdom Hall but who do not speak English as their mother tongue

    It doesn't make any sense as to why they wouldn't want non English speaking Brothers reaching out for jobs such as floor sweeping.

    the simplified version doesn't have that article?

    I thought they wanted simple minded fools to reach out?
