    2020 Memorial - No Need To Actually Have The Emblems

    New Light: No need To Actually Have An Audience !

    Doesn't even matter if the emblems ARE present.

    The 'Great Crowd' is not part of the New Covenant.

    Jesus Christ is not their mediator.

    Christianity is useless to them.

    The Memorial of JWs this year has become a 5 star comedy show.

    A few days before my Mom died of Cancer at 57 it was very important for them to bring the emblems to her even though she wouldn't even be partaking of them. They had her sit up in bed and they handed her each of the emblems and she had to hand them back to them one by one. It was important for her to physically touch them. If this post is correct, it seems it might not have been necessary for them to have been there at all. I'm guessing this is just a rumor.

    Probably a case of dumb elders who can't follow instructions.

    The whole 'bring the emblems to a person who really can be in the meeting' is only to be done for the anointed.

    From what I have heard from some Bethelites, they are now going to use touchscreens for the Memorial, similar to ordering from fast food restaurants such as McDonalds.

    You open the screen and click "Arrived". You can download the opening song and prayer onto your mobile device. Then you click on the "I agree with the Song and Prayer" checkbox.

    You then get a screen where it asks if you have read the Memorial outline, similar to terms and services. You click the Yes box.

    Then you are asked what you would like to order. You have the option to select Wine or simply continue. If you select Wine, you are then asked if you would like to make it a combo, including the Bread. You select your option. If you get the combo, you listen to two prayers. Then you get the checkbox that you have heard both of the prayers.

    You then click the Continue button. You then check the box that you have listened to the final song and closing prayer.

    You are then directed to another screen with a suggested donation option and your credit card number. If you select No, it simply loops back and asks you the same question over and over.

    After donating, an email is automatically sent to your local PO and you receive a nice thank you note.

    That is apparently the new process.

    The 'Great Crowd' is not part of the New Covenant.

    h: that is were they went wrong, at the last supper, the blood of the [new] covenant was passed to all, but only a few, . as mentioned before, and after the meal, were part of the KIMGDOM covenant.

    Yes it is such a sad part of the JW tradition. It does not require much imagination to see it as a satanic antichristian ritual where you reject the blood and flesh of the humanity of Jesus. And all because of the silly speculations of Russell and Rutherford. They invented a sort of believer not spoken of in the Bible. As Acts 4:12 explains,there is no salvation outside Jesus. All things are through and in Jesus (Colossians 1:16 etc).

    This begs the question... "what's the point?"

    That’s the special talk theme this year, they’re finally doing their big reveal

    The emblems, whether you have them or not will be invisibly present. In fact they've been invisibly present since 1914, which is another way of saying 1874.
