How the college educated/employed "weak" JW's will soon be "used"

    Once these laid off Bethelites are released from their duties, where will they go?

    How many will turn to their "spiritually weak" families for a place to live, a meal or financial aid? The ones who have been criticized over the years for attending college and getting a good job may soon become an asset to the ones who have been relieved of their duties . We have watched some of our family members (Bethelites/pioneers) openly judge the ones who have decided to attend college and work for a living. Are the family members who have been openly judged and criticized going to want to help these ones?

    It's funny how so many can judge so quickly but how the tables turn in their hour of need.

    If they do that it will be like the Society on one side of their mouth asking for people with specific skills to volunteer and on the other side of their mouth saying they don't endorse the education that enabled them to attain those skills. Makes them look foolish but perhaps if they eat "humble pie" and ask for help maybe they might have a change in perspective. Or if they don't get help maybe they might have a change in perspective of headquarters.

    If they get help from these family members, I can see them saying, "Jehovah" provided.

    Very true cognac. I know many who are going through life and calling everything a miracle when it's their family removing every obstacle, paying their way, keeping them from living on the street, etc. Not one but many.

    But it's always miraculous!! No its not. It's enablement from people who hope to get paradise points with the desert god. Or who are just realists keeping these people from living out of a car. No miracles!

    Well here in the UK I am sure Good Old Satan will take care of them with housing, Social Security and other benefits.

    Many in my congregation would not survive without Satan's help.

    Good points made by some who say JWs will put it down to Jehovah providing. They keep quiet though if nothing turns up and they end up homeless.
