    Just had a brief skim through the article about being doers of the word. James gives examples of what that means, like clothing the naked and feeding the hungry. I knew as soon as I saw the title that the official WT stance on what being a doer of the word would be different from my intuitive interpretation. And I was right. They tell you to take time out from attending to family needs and looking after sick relatives, to instead focus on the preaching work. IOW, they see saying "Be filled, be clothed" without helping the person materially in those matters, as being a doer of the word. They have come away with the exact opposite interpretation of what being a doer of the word means. 🙄
