So we all know that the special talk titled "Who Really Is Jesus Christ?" will be given before the Memorial next year which is very new. Also new this year is that the special talk will be prerecorded and given by a branch committee member rather than a brother from the local congregation.
Does anyone else think that this will be an opportunity for the organization to turn the hose on the 144,000 doctrine either saying that everyone should partake or that only the Governing Body can partake or something else along those lines? From the words of Jesus at John 6:53, only those who eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood have life in them. Whatever they do, I expect it to address the concerns about the growing number of partakers in previous years, making it so they no longer need to publish the number in the Field Service Report (which supposedly will be posted online since the Yearbook is discontinued).
Does anyone else have any ideas?
