    But I would imagine the upcoming protest that the governing body members are invited to will be turned into something like (Look the nations are coming after us the END IS NEAR!!!)

    Could someone clarify - What is the upcoming protest that the Governing Body have been invited to?

    A bunch of ex JWs are going to Warwick to do some activist work. I think it's on the 4th of November. Everyone is invited. The Vast Apostate Army (on Facebook) are organising it.

    Enough information in this toppic for jw.org to choose a scenario.

    Did you ever think about that? JW.org dropping an output scenario here and the posters here write the arguments? Free advise!

    the present and previous CO both to be regularly substituted by local circuit elders whilst they go off to do schools elsewhere. The current CO is leaving his assignment early to go and do schools in Ireland. On his recent visit he was not even present on the Saturday am field service as he had another assignment. No one other than the elders knew in advance as no doubt it would have affected attendance.

    This happened too in our hall. The CO was elsewhere. The substitute CO was a CO trainee. A young pioneer / elder with a pioneer wife. FROM OUR OWN HALL. They were both useless. Very bizarre experience.

    This rumor is 10 years old. Ten years ago I asked a C.O about it and he was dumbfounded....knew nothing about it.

    The decisions revealed at the AGM perhaps lend credance to the subject of this thread. The impression is of a need to drastically curtail expenditure. COs represent a significant expenditure.

    The GB has been ruthless so far in making savings - elimination of many bethalites, special pioneers, DOs, sale of kingdom hells. This ruthlessness will likely continue. The GB is now blind to the message of 1 Cor 13 - "love is kind" and are a bunch of self-appointed and cold hearted overlords who worship the "obese altar of the $". So eliminating COs may come to be. They will surely have discussed it as an option. If they are reluctant, then the deteriorating state of accounts may force their hands.

    There are many ambitious elders who would take delight in the role of standing in as a CO on a temporary basis and thus help "kingdom resources" go further. The GB could portray such a change as a further example of "keeping a simple eye" as they like to say. Just add a bit more to the syllabus of the kingdom elders' school - that'll do it!
