Steve2 I’m in full agreement with your observations and
comments. In the past I have never once rejoiced with seeing anyone at all
losing their job even if I didn’t like the individual. My thought was I wouldn’t
like that to happen to me and would never wish the same on anyone else.
this new round of Bethelites stood quietly by over the years watching longtime
friends & co-workers get thrown into the darkness of the unknown world.
They were not ever able to protest or voice any dissent. They offered up phony
smiles of support and repeated typical WTS platitudes. Deep inside though they
were happy THEY had dodged a
bullet. And who can blame them. In one fell swoop a person leaving Bethel loses
everything. They lose room and board, co-workers, their local congregation friend’s,

these JW’s in fulltime service and their delusions of grandeur.
their famous go to scripture, “For whatever a man is sowing, this he will also
So be it then, there are many fulltime servants who
never remotely anticipated the year 2015 soon to be 2016 arriving & are now
getting jettisoned out on their butts. Maybe Jah wasn’t such a great employer
after all. They should have got a job in the public sector in Satan’s world.
As far as I’m concerned they are getting exactly
what they deserve. Now go get a job and start paying for your own rent &
provide for your own needs like the rest of the world.
