Are fewer and fewer disfellowshipped seeking reinstatement?
'Anyone who desires to receive a copy of Our Kingdom Ministry, including disfellowshipped persons, may receive one'
When I first read the above I thought...'am I reading this right'! Are the pharisee GB getting a little soft on the disfellowshipped in the 110,000+ congregations? Is this the first of many demonstrations to come of showing a little respect to the disfellowshipped?
Then I realized that the disfellowshipped, once they are disfellowshipped have free reign to do whatever they please and to go wherever they please including visiting competing XJW websites without having to answer to 'Mother'.
Many if not most disfellowshipped are probably finding these XJW sites very friendly, inviting and informative. The internet provides disfellowshipped ones access to everything WT related (including KMs). So why go to a meeting empty-handed, not to mention that once on these XJW websites many df'd ones are getting a real education on how disgusting the WBTS really is.
Question: How do we know that the GB are desperate?
Answer: They're getting soft on the disfellowshipped!
