In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king.
In the Watchtower Society, there is a point where heaven and Earth meet.
100+ years of historical evidence will show it is a junction of dysfunction; a mental construct; a shadow of imagination indwelling like a spirit of possession.
The shaman who invoke this shadow spirit are seven men in number; an elite cadre of self-described anointed kings and priests whose ultimate destination is heaven itself.
Or so they are eager to insist!
While cloaking themselves in the ragged raiment of mere slaves, their actions, words and deeds betray this subterfuge. Indeed, this elite Governing Body is the nexus of perplexity and the hub of hubbub.
How so? These 7 pretenders to the throne of God have been sorely tested as to what sort of "slaves" they really are. Christ's description of true Christians as those who have "love among themselves" has been a proving ground of despicable acts of child abuse and executive complicity in what is called misprision of felonies.
What is misprision, gentle readers? It is deliberate concealment of one's knowledge of a felony.
King Geoffrey Jackson has deigned to appear before the Australian Royal Commission inquiring of responsibility toward victims of child sexual abuse in Jehovah's Witness churches (of Australia). His sworn testimony in now on the books. Let us all confer upon his pronouncements as to what sort of King/Priest 8+million Jehovah's Witnesses must yoke themselves to in abject obedience.
His words were stern. They were also flat and cold, not unlike a coiled serpent on stone, concealed in shadows.
As the shepherds of shepherds, executives in charge of all policies and bylaws, each of the seven Governing Body members is accused or acquitted on "love among themselves" and their flock of 8 million.
How did they fare?
Let us turn our gaze to that damning stack of folders on Judge McClellen's bench. Do we not see, can we not watch the tower as it rises-- a tower of child rape cases unreported to any civil authority numbering one thousand and six?
This tower must be watched--if for no other reason than it is a curse and accusation of malfeasance, indifference, and inhumanity.
Can we not hear the hollow, false concern in Jackson's voice? At one moment, he cannot imagine how a child victim of incest must feel when faced with her molester (entirely due to Governing Body edict!) At the next moment he feigns compassionate empathy for what the victims have suffered.
Perhaps if he had troubled himself to read her impassioned pleas or taken a few moments to watch excerpts from the RC hearing we might forgive him his casual befuddlement and detachment. But, no. He could not be bothered. And that icy fact should indeed bother the rest of us sorely!
Why not? His compassion extends only to his own family, apparently.
Any glimpse of actual love for the flock of God on the part of Jackson is buried someplace inaccessible to mere mortals. We who are not heavenly can only shrug our shoulders in disbelief at such a cold, harsh 'divinity' in a man. (Anointed? My ass!)
I would urge you to watch the hearings--as many as you can. Take notes for yourself. Ask yourself time and again as each elder and attorney representing Watchtower interests testifies, do these men actually love the people they pretend to shepherd?
If they do love the flock--where the flaming hell is one spark of evidence in their words and deeds?
Where is evidence of a conscience acted upon?
I fear you'll find none--as I was unable to find a hint, trace or clue of it.
MARK 9: 42"Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe to stumble, it would be better for him if, with a heavy millstone hung around his neck, he had been cast into the sea.
I would love to see that!
