I've had very little to do with jw's since the early 1990's. However, I do try to stay a little informed on what they are up to as I have several close relatives who are devout. I rely on this site to keep me updated.
Over the weekend I learned that a couple of my relatives, a father and son, have decided that they are anointed and had some bread and wine at the last memorial. How often does this happen? I thought the anointed class was closed. Is that just an incorrect memory or has doctrine change?
I can't say that I knew a lot of people claiming to be anointed back in the day. What I do remember about the few I knew of is that they were old and a bit whacky. They did know their bibles though. I'm sure the ones I was aware of are long dead by now.
