    I'm at the recorded meeting right now. Trying to hide my disgust sitting up front listening to Geoffrey Jackson quibble about the Pharisaical minutai of sanctification vs. vindication. The audience is thrilled that they now have 'permission' to say God's name can be vindicated. So pathetic! I wonder if anybody's noticed my droll expression, lack of applause and stifled eye rolling.

    How many times has the sanctification/vindication flip flop happened in the last 50 years? Who gives a f#%k?

    Geoffrey Jackson - vacuous and confabulating as are his GB colleagues. You must now empathise with Solomon when he said... "Better is the ending afterward of a matter than its beginning..."

    In the video they just showed, they announced that some of the buildings being dedicated today were nursing homes for older Witnesses. Don't people realize that these are the same generation who were guaranteed they would never grow old? Isn't this hitting ANYBODY in the audience?!

    I'm here too, Neat, trying to control my facial expressions. How bout when those brothers "turned the matter over to prayer" when having issues with fabricators. Biggest inner eyeroll ever!!

    Can somebody explain to me what the sanctification/vindication thing is all about please?

    I'm a Born in, left at age 31 and this is new to me.

    New light:

    Ezekiel's temple vision no longer represents the spiritual temple from the founding of Christianity. Now it's specifically only about JWs today from 1919 forward. How convenient.

    It ultimately means nothing. 'Debates about words' like Paul warned about.
