    Simple mathematical logical = more adult JWS = more adults who claim to be anointed.

    Henceforth an increase in partakers

    So basically what they are saying is ...

    The sharp increase in memorial partakers doesn't mean they there are more anointed, but it may indicate an increase in mental illness among the ranks.

    Yikes! They are resorting to calling their members crazy to save face???

  • Diogenesister

    why don't they just say the increase has taken place from the very year we changed the doctrine to allow people born after 1935 to be anointed.

    All they have to do to stop it is close the door again LoL!!

    The guy that wrote Revelations was mentally diseased and the fact that the GB are judging anyone partaking as having problems in itself condemns them, for jesus said not to judge!!

    How can you be Jesus true followers if you do not head his counsel?!

    Its so convenient and derogatory that they have to pin an increase on memorial partakers on people who have mental problems.

    Using JWs logic, since the number of anointed has increased due to some being mistaken or mentally ill then CORROSPONDINGLY, the number of those with an earthly hope must include those with the wrong understanding due to being mistaken or mentally ill.

    Interestingly, the lowest number of anointed in recent years is 8,524 in 2005. Since it is now over 18,000, that's a lot of people in their organisation with the wrong understanding. We can't even identify how many included in the other sheep are wrong or mistaken but since it is an issue with the anointed, the figures must be so much higher within the other sheep.

    Therefore, the number of anointed should be far, far greater, unless they believe that those with mental illnesses could not possibly be called and those that mistakenly don't recognise the calling will be disregarded by Jehovah.

    Has the wt ever got all those elect ones together to discuss spiritual/ bible things or are they just seen as a curiosity?

    . Therefore, the number of partakers does not accurately indicate the number of anointed ones left on earth. Others may have mental or emotional problems that lead them to believe that they will rule with Christ in heaven

    Maybe the real question is, why has the number of mentally disturbed individuals increased over the years and how do they know that those partaking in the past, weren't mentally ill as well?

    What is it about heavenly life that is so attractive to these supposedly mentally ill individuals and what does that say about the partakers who are considered normal?
