I know of a congregation that had a special rule. Any brother that gave a talk had to wear a white shirt. If a visiting speaker came to give his public talk from out of town and he didn't know about the congregational rule, he had a choice of either not giving the talk or he could change his shirt to one that was provided by that congregation....yes, they kept a variety of sizes on hand in case of emergency.
RULES ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN
I can remember that some pointed out to the organization that their stand on neutrality was not scriptural. It wasn't, but they were running ahead of the organization which refused to change. So these ones left. Later the organization changed and said these ones should have been patient until it was Jehovah's time to make the adjustment. Can you imagine arguing for the new generation understanding before its time?

Been there, done that.
The Bible has entire chapters devoted to requiring Christians to wear "White Shirts" while promoting Watchtower Bullshit. For some strange reason, if one promotes Watchtower Bullshit in colored shirts, Watchtower Bullshit isn't quite the same bullshit as it is if it is promoted in White Shirts. You must believe this. I'm sure Jesus or Paul said this. Somewhere.
I don't really understand why, but I'm sure this is all "Bible-Based(tm)."
Blondie, Here we go again! The organization is NEVER wrong, even when they are. Wait on Jehovah. He tells us what we know. When there's a change in understanding-----YOU messed it up, maybe even Jehovah too. But not the organization!
