I'm sure they will. In the case of my particular family targets though, they're so infrequent that they don't check things like JW.org. So it's unlikely they'll bother to go there to get they're latest hit of indoctrination. Even less likely to check the Internet aposta-sources for the commentary for just how crazy the videos really are. But I sure wish they would.
Inactive ones are shunned anyway. I haven't gone to a meeting in two years and no one from my hall has anything to do with me and will only say hello if they happen to see me out in public. I'm sure the most here experience the same treatment.
UK conventions haven't started yet have they?
yes shunning even those that have not had action taken against them by the cong
anyone "calling themself a brother" but practicing sin
sin = disobeying jehovah
jehovah = jehovahs org
jehovahs org = GB
Bit if you are inactive and not part of a congregation then are you still a brother??
From what I've seen it's all very extreme. I'm hoping this will really wake many up to the criminal nature of the watchtower corporation.
It will only reinforce the "pious and critical" mindset of witnesses. Those that are middle of the road will likely be stirred into full on cult mentality after this video series and talk.
The atmosphere of the venue will sadly reinvigorate and strengthen the resolve of any who may have been waking up, and make them become full on witnesses again....
If you think you have any in the congs who still say hi, that will stop immediately.
hoser - "The speaker doing the shunning part made sure to pause before and after saying this includes inactive ones who haven't been through the judicial process..."
Hey, that's me! I'm famous!!!
Seriously though; It's a nice warm-up for any impending/potential "official" blanket action against faders.
Shit, I've been expecting this for years, now (I even mentioned it in my very first post, here)... frankly, I'm surprised the rhetoric dialing up hasn't started sooner.
They did a good job of getting the audience all emotional and teary eyed with the video Hope for what we do not see.
Pretty much same old same old today though
dont marry out of "the truth"
don't work overtime
don't watch porn on your cell phone.
How long do you guys expect this mindset to "stick"?
I've read it has a 2 week impact on other threads. Do you agree?
