Love one another intensely...avoid partiality

    "Jehovah's Witnesses have 'love' on their lips, but NONE in their hearts!"

    My old congregation had 5 elders. One was a bully and the 800lb. gorilla. He would push the whole congregation and elders around. They would constantly fight over large issues and petty issues. Here are two verbal fights he had with the other elders while the congregation meetings were in session: ( elder # 1 is the bully )

    While elder # 1 was giving a talk ( heavy rain storms are brewing outside, with loud thunder and lightning ) the microphones and lights are knocked out. We lost all power and could barely see. Elder # 1 yells out (after waiting in the dark for several minutes), '' We have an electrician in the house and it looks like he's just sitting there and not doing anything to see what he can do to fix the problem.'' elder # 4 ( an electrician ) yell backs angrily at elder #1 '' The transformer is down. What would you like me to fix?"

    Elder # 4 is giving a 5 minute question and answer talk at the Ministry School. Elder # 1 is called on to answer the first question. He gives a 3 minute answer which covers the whole question and answer talk. Elder # 4 says to elder # 1, ''If you want, you can come up here and finish my talk."

    The GB is ignoring their own advice right now by promoting division among members regarding the unvaccinated.

    ''The GB is ignoring their own advice right now by promoting division among members regarding the unvaccinated''

    It's just another example of double speak and speaking out of both sides of the mouth..

    So long as they remain a Jehovah`s Witness ,once they leave ? They are then a part of Satan`s world and not worthy of our consideration .They have made their choice.

    Love is conditional among Jehovah`s Witnesses.

    You are either with us or against us .it`s Your choice.

    Isn’t this just human nature? A sociologist may be able to explain the dynamics of a group interaction and why one is left out of a conversation.

    In the picture given it is sad when an old guy is ignored but could he be partly responsible? Would he want to see what the others are showing each other on their phone?

    It is true that an outgoing warm hearted person would look out for him but maybe next week there will be an article about taking the initiative yourself to talk to others .

    Theres never been any real love in this org. Leaders always been of the idea that most important thing for Christian is to preach. Other things or just waste of time. You meaby got some fake love if you were pioneer so you make more hours co elders could show to co territory is being preached.
