I was having a chat with my apostate kid brother yesterday about witness beliefs. He finds that talking about JW's stimulates his mind almost as much as watching paint drying. I told him that our Mother was about to be imprinted yet again by the territorial WT savages, this time in the re-iteration of that loving practice known as disfellowshipping. He said that so what, it's no big deal, they will probably change their minds about it just like they did recently over the blood-issue. Yawn.
Change over the blood issue?
Well, yes, according to li'l bro, who lives close to Momma, she told him, just a few weeks ago, that the receiving of a blood transfusion was now OK for Jehovah's people.
Now kid bro and Momma are both very clear thinking people, so it's quite unlikely that either are mistaken. I am also reliably informed that pre assembly meetings for long term witnesses only, are starting to occur, and that my Momma gets invited to these. Could this be another way to get change across gradually without alarming the new dubs? Is there change on the way, and is this new light being gradually introduced via private little meetings so that acceptance by the R & F becomes more likely?
Anyone else got any input about this?
