Someone in my family many years back was pursued very intensely by JWs in her neighborhood to become one of the pack. Two or three JWs would meet with her each week and they would discuss the Bible, with which she was well versed, and also some of their supplementary commentary material of a high ratio of drag to lift. She became more and more enthusiastic about the Bible, but did notice significant discrepancies between the text and the study material. She didn't take the invitation to join.
When the delegation warned her that she would be lost unless she joined the group, she retorted that they had no such authority to condemn, but this was a matter which God decided. ... And so it went, but the meetings broke off forever on this question which she posed about Revelations.
In chapter 1, verse 11, when John heard the voice behind like a trumpet, saying, "Write down in a book all that you see, and send it to the seven churches of [ Asia Minor] Ephesus, Smyrna, Peregamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea..."
Her question was, "Which of those churches do you represent?"
Comments? Or. perhaps as so many other topics do, has this one come up before?
