Did the jws ever get a card that would clearly identify them as reps of the wts? Seems like a crime had been commited by someone(s) posing as jws and there was talk of this.
Testimony card returns
Interesting. Makes sense really. Mildly surprised they are not counting the placement.
I suppose the majority of elders and publishers will hail this newest development, but some might see it as another sign of deterioration of the cult. More than seventy years ago, N.H. Knorr founded the Theocratic Ministry School to make Witnesses competent enough to do the canvssing work and to get rid of testimony cards. I think this reintroduced feature of the work is an open, albeit tacit, admission that the TMS has failed. After three genrations of training, the average Witness still cannot make a good presentation of their message at a door. For those who interpret this feature that way, contemplation of their own personal exit from the cult may follow.
"It has been observed that some people who are hesitant to accept a tract, magazine, or
other literature are willing to visit our Web site."
LOL. I think they have themselves confused with porn. Lots of people would never step foot in an adult bookstore or buy a skin magazine... but are ready, willing, and able to visit porn websites.
I'm quite sure that men and boys aren't clearing their browser history to hide that they've been visiting jw.org.
Wing Commander- Aparently the stones WON'T be crying out, but these flimsy business cards with JW.org logo and scan will.
Baltar- Everyone, you're not thinking "borgy" enough. Computers are made of silicon. Silicon makes up rocks. Rocks and stones are the same in the bible. Therefore: The "Stones crying out is actually referring to modern computer systems and they spreading the message of JW.ORG!"
Baltar.....that was brillant!
I already got a business card as descibed from an elder in Ohio! I can take a picture of it and post it when I get home (without his name ...to be kind).
Violia Did the jws ever get a card that would clearly identify them as reps of the wts?
The WT have been emphatic that publishers are NOT representatives of the wts!
Can't have millions of accident prone, unthinking JWs creating potential law suits for Mother. All those compensation payouts? Oh, the mere thought!
Two points for JWs to ponder:
1. Would you want people to join your organization who prefer the internet to actual contact with other people?
2. If you're trying to attract internet-minded people, they'll already know that the web is a smorgasbord of multiple views on all sorts of topics, including on your religious organization. Contrary views are just a click away.
WOW. How utterly Watchtarded. Also, it is true to say that R&F JWs are NOT WT reps. You are in your own "personal ministry" without any legal support from MOTHER. If you fall on ice, get attacked by a chimp or dog, get arrested for trespassing, or run over a kid, YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN.
