If you could ask Geoffrey Jackson one question that he had to answer what would it be?
VIDIOT- Excellent question, probably a question that Angus Stewart will ask Jackson, I hope he does
Are there sex offenders - accused or otherwise....
It is a good question but it would take some doing to unravel what the WTS defines as "sex offender". They obviously believe that a sex offender can be rehabilitated by preying to Jehobah. Jackson would be able to confidently say "no" because the WT view is that a "sex offender" isn't one once they repent properly - whatever that "properly" means...I am not quite sure how that measure of repentance works.
After all, they see "marriage" as a solution to those uncomfortable situations that occur when an adult man (over legal age) commits statutory rape with an underage girl. And then they blame it on "cultural differences" - in other words, "rape" isn't really rape when the rapist marries the minor child that "was oh so close to being legal" because...well..."it is a cultural thing". Never mind that the adult man is responsible for not succumbing to his testosterone urges because it is illegal to have sex with a minor. Let's just call it "cultural" and say that the man was innocent.
Very good question, Vidiot.
It is a good question but it would take some doing to unravel what the WTS defines as "sex offender" - Angus Stewart can (and hopefully will) bypass this by using the secular definition of 'sex offender'.
Jackson would then have nowhere to hide.
Can the governing body change the 2 witness rule with a simple vote on the issue? Do you only need a 2/3 majority to change the policy, or does it have to be unanimous? How would you, Mr. Jackson vote on the issue?
In recent times, when new light has been released by the GB, it is not a refinement of the old light as CTR said it would but the new light makes the old light invalid or just plain wrong. If the old light is wrong who got it wrong?
Jehovah and the Holy Spirit OR the GB/FDS?
(Either way they are goosed, if Jehoover got it wrong who wants to follow that religion, if the men got it wrong then you are following men who get things wrong and you cannot trust what they say, ESPECIALLY if it appears as not sound in mind)
@ flipper, Orphan, and LoveUni...
Cross your fingers, knock on wood, and "pray for Jehovah's blessing".
(Or maybe pass the suggestion on to Angus Stewart.)
