    It's not just stupid--it's depressingly stupid. At one point, long ago when I was active, I could take a certain pride in the (quasi) logic of our theology, believing that it was at least somewhat defensible from the Bible. This new nonsense isn't even close.

    Could you imagine trying to explain this to a non-jw at a door.

    I would be so embarrassed trying to unravel this non-sense. Does it make sense that God requires you to have a flow chart to grasp a teaching?

    IF he claimed to be anointed before Franz died, THEN you would be right.
    Do you know this for a certainty?
    In the '80s and '90s it would have been very unusual for a 20-something punkass JW to claim to be anointed.
    It is possible, just extremely unlikely. As far as I can tell, the GB is not providing any details one way or the other. They don't really like to give anything that resembles evidence, do they?
    By the way, let's get one thing straight: NO ONE IS ANOINTED BY HOLY SPIRIT. That notion is a myth.

    Indeed I concur...I'm just highlighting the current GB can in fact extend when the Big A comes for another 30 years if they wanted to.

    Valid point, why are we trying to understand a cult that is trying to justify itself with batshit crazy logic...

    This is a fu#$% up religion. I really, really need to get my family out of this mess.

    Many, many of them will just lap up and swallow whatever the GB tells them

    Reminds me a little of what someone once said many years ago as written in the bible at Matt. 23: 23-24

    At about the 12 minute point Splane states categorically that all the members of the current Governing Body are in the second group. That includes Sanderson who some are here questioning.

    I wonder if they would look down on a non-generation anointed, much like a third generation witness might look down on a first generation witness.

    It's all about heirarchy.

    The GB 2.0 need to do better when they make up excuses for why the Big A hasn't happened yet.



    Edited: Jake ain't got nothing on the GB. They are masters!

    So in reading along, I think I have one point clarified?

    Sanderson is part of the overlap?

    As to why we analyze this...I can see the fun and the challenge but also many of us have people we love inside that burning building called the Org.

    I for one am looking for reasoning points here to use. Thank you all for providing them.

    I don't think there's enough server space. :smirk:
