Do you think at the threat of assassination most religious leaders would renounce their beliefs ?

    I did see ID cards on a site where the individual elders had sworn the oath of allegiance to the US. Sorry don't have the link.

    Today's GB members would for they've already said they aren't inspired by god or his holy spirit , meaning the organization is why they are there, in other words they are avowed to themselves which they have said numerous times they are just imperfect sinful men ... ie. all the power, privilege and perks.

    JWS are not true acting Christians, they are avowed to the WTS, its operations, as well its controlling leaders.

    No threat of assassination, just the opportunity to give a defense for Jehovah before the courts... Check point number eight:

    Leaders already see their new ideas coming to reality in the future. To renounce their current status has already happened, is happening all the time. They do not want to be punished for the past, but will embrace the future, whatever it will take. some will imo.

    Good point. Here's a real life experience on this issue:

    My family was from '58-'70 a part of the Columbia Heights Congregation which met downstairs in Brooklyn Bethel. Because it was so convenient for the members of the Governing Body we were used to seeing them at meetings when they were in town. Mostly, though they were gone, often on international trips which they wold occasionally tell us about.

    In 1960 I graduated from high school in NYC. In those days all graduating seniors were required to sign a loyalty oath to get the diplomas they'd worked for. Hayden Covington, the Society's Constitutional lawyer wrote a letter on my behalf to the Board of Regents in order for me to get my diploma without having to take that oath.

    Imagine how I felt when not long afterward I applied for a passport and found every American was required to sign the EXACT SAME LOYALTY OATH in order to receive a passport! I knew then that every American on GB (all but 1-2 in those days) HAD TO HAVE SIGNED that very oath that signing would have once described "disloyalty to Jehovah's Kingdom Government".

    BTW, I DID sign the oath and I DID get my first passport. Never again did I put my trust in the WT's 'do what I say, not what I do' twist on "Truth".

    Today, older and wiser, I suspect that I was selected by the Society and Covington for convenience, hoping to make a federal case out of this oath. (There must have been hundreds of other JW's graduating at the same time, but none lived as close to HQ! as I did.) It was wise of the board to mail my diploma without comment.

    Anyone of these WBT$ GB fat fart "Rock Star" Popes would cave in.

    I've long suspected that if faced with sure-thing and catastrophic criminal court losses, the Org's leadership would, in fact, publicly renounce Watchtowerism in exchange for immunity from prosecution or reduced sentences.

    I could be wrong.
