I was telling the guys this morning here a work about the CNN show and how in the mind of JW all this public attention for so many of them is often viewed as bible prophecy being fulfilled in THEIR BEHALF.
I dare say that in a typical congo of 120 publishers only 4or 5 if that will stop and consider what all this means. So one of the guys asked how is that possible with all this stuff going on.I explained to him he needs to understand the indoctrination process for the avg jw.
Many for years esp in this country have not been totured and harmed they have only read about how in THE LAST DAYS THEY WOULD BE Persecution.
AND WITH the help of talks, articles and elders,co,do and bethel speakers they will be prepared to view this as SATAN IS ON THE WAR PATH
And I was thinking about how I too perhaps would have looked up all this attention as Proof that Jah people are under attack
I used to say in talks all the time that it is ONLY JW WHO are mentioned in the news, and how Satan is trying to make Jah look bad for example Michael Jackson, almost in every article on MJ they mentioned his faith and I would often ask from the platform
How many folks know what faith Billy Joel or Liz Taylor, or any other star for the most part is.
And I could see from the nodding heads that they got the point yes only jw are mentioned in the news to make jah look bad
. for many of us if we were allowed to think and question things I firmly believe that any of us would have left long time ago
but the way the System is setup the moment you start to go off track some jw be it pub, elder, co , article is right there to bring you back in line
I used to mention how if you hear NEGATIVE TALK what should you do friends and everyone would answer REDIRECT THE CONVERSATION BACK to something Spiritual AKA WT RELATED- SMILE
SO rarely have I ever heard of a gathering of jw were folks expressed their concern OPENLY ABOUT ISSUES Of concern
So while this show in my view and it has always been my goal will help NONJW TO NEVER BECOME apart of this group
For folks now see that the smiling couple on their doorsteps on sat morning are truly lost and part of a High Control groups
Most folk simply view JW as pest info like this sheds A LIGHT on an aspect of jw that most folks WOULD HAVE NEVER BELIEVED
As for the other 110-115 jw who stay behind after seeing and reading info like this show tonight we can only keep hope alive that one day they will wake up and smell the coffee.
getting info to folks is the key to getting out- I can only wonder how long Lady "C" and myself would have stayed if it had not been for the net.
today the avg person in the WEST has access to info that many of us ONLY DREAMED OF
can you see jw kids witnessing in school like many of us tried to do during holidays etc
today their classmates will offer them a printout off the net and if they reject it THEY ARE TOAST IN terms of trying to witness to their classmates.
I can see some Service meeting part where a 13yr old says:
"It is so hard to witness at school nowadays cause the students ask us questions they get off the net and we can't read it so we can't answer the questions"
