Midway through the "Congregation Bible Study" at this week's midweek meeting, a paragraph of the "God's Kingdom Rules" book stated as supposed evidence that "god's kingdom rules":
"Spiritual provisions flow to us like an EVER-BROADENING and EVER-DEEPENING river. Our Bible-based publications - as well as recordings and videos, our meetings and conventions, and the material published on our Web site - together amount to an ONGOING FLOOD TIDE of spiritual sustenance... Are you not thrilled to see the fulfillment of Jehovah’s promises of ABUNDANCE in your daily life?"
(Apologies for the capitalization.)
As with the paragraphs covered in the midweek meeting a few weeks ago praising the organisation's practice of "not soliciting" for money, it is fascinating to see how rapidly the "God's Kingdom Rules" book has gone out of date. I wonder what is running through the minds of JWs in attendance as the above is read out at the same time as the output of "spiritual food", both in printed and electronic form and including the recently introduced videos, is falling off a cliff?
