anyone seen the drama on friday ?
It was about a pioneer couple, when the husband, also an elder, lost his job, and borrowed money from a fellwo elder, who apparently was considered weatlthy.
the main lesson of the drama was quite ok, even though a bit overdone, touching on the issue of gossip and false assumptions.
But there were at least two subtle lessons, whitch were quite disturbing:
1) No matter what happens, remain pioneering. Lost your job, no money aside for emergencies ? no worry, the brothers (those lazy materialists, who do not pioneer) will lend you money and better not complain about it. Paying them back ? well, whenever...just keep pioneering...
2) older ones, you do not keep pace with the orgs propgress in the use of technology? save up your pension and buy a computer, congo will teach you how to use it, so we (org) do not have to worry about you and print costly magazines...
This seems to be in line with two major thrusts of the org: push pioneering and use of jw.org
