A disfellowshiped brother wrote a letter of disquisition to the governing body of WBTS a little while ago. It was not in any way nasty, derogatory, rude, blasphemous, or with profanity but it was civil, truthful, & very informative that some have described as extremely truthful to enlightening, an ebullient disclosure. I got to see some paraphrases extracted from it that have been circulating quietly or rather secretly passed around & I agree with the latter description.
The governing body was greatly perturbed, alarmed, to confused with this letter particularly as they became aware several of the congregation were also sent copies which some of the local congregational elders raised controversial questions about but mainly was dismissed by them without reading, to scoffing & ridicule but some also saw something more truthful to concern them. There was a meeting & some discussion with one worried elder who contacted the brother as he saw truth he understood & believed most of what was written in the letter but the outcome of this meeting I am unable to find out about, also this elder has since passed away.
The governing body advised the congregations affected or should I say infected according to their reasoning’s & said that this brother was Quote: “the worst apostate person they had yet encountered”.
People can write all sorts of nonsense as we already know, some of the denunciations & vilification's of the WTBS we have all seen on the web & in the media have sometimes been extreme, so why this reaction from the GB about an honest scriptural letter?
More to the point why has this brother been judged so severely, what truths are they afraid of ? Is only one unanswered question. But with the knowledge we have of the WTBS would it not be an honour or an accolade to be judged by them as “the worst apostate person they had yet encountered”. Why this accusing declaration by the WBTS governing body whose own behavior now in every respect is an utterly shambolic, disgraceful, hypocrisy, in deed, truth, & actions of professed feelings & virtues that they do not have, most openly manifest by their treatment of the disfellowshiped ?
It appears to me that the GB are very threatened by proper truths. Jesus was accused of apostasy by His own church of the Jews, & didn’t He say: “just as they did it me they will do it to you” ?
