    I have family members that would not only drink the kool aid, but would dish it out too and lick the spoon afterwards.

    Is it just to cover themselves, in case tight pants Tony goes off the reservation again?

    All of us must be ready to obey any instructions we may receive, whether these appear sound from a strategic or human standpoint or not.” - Watchtower, November 2013 Study Edition

    Because all members of the Governing body fit this description they themselves had written......

    Not necessarily. A number of factors—including past religious beliefs or even mental or emotional imbalance—might cause some to assume mistakenly that they have the heavenly calling. - August 15, 2011 Watchtower (the study edition) pg 22 QfR

    There you have it. The Governing body who clain to be 'anointed™' are all mental cases.

    Long may the Governing body suffer and pay for their crimes against humanity.

    It ramps up the suspense factor....something really exciting is going to happen....keeps the delusional coming back for more. They do love that emotional manipulation schematic.

    They also said that the GB are not inspired and are not infalliable thus how can you be loyal to "strange" direction when they admit every policy and every teaching they produce may be wrong?

    Maybe they'll start worshipping Jesus, that'd be pretty weird for 'true Christians', wouldn't it.

    At our last Servant Meeting with the CO, this article was covered again. He said "we" would receive these orders, being "Appointed Men", and that the Publishers need to be completely trusting us, as faithful men, to take the lead in carrying out these orders.

    At another meeting mid week meeting, they showed the "Bunker Video". The statement from our Service Overseer was: "Those Brothers and Sisters survived because they were loyal and obedient. Our chance to show our Loyalty and Obedience is coming soon." He then referenced this Watchtower.

    “At that time, the life-saving direction that we receive from Jehovah’s organization may not appear practical from a human standpoint. All of us must be ready to obey any instructions we may receive, whether these appear sound from a strategic or human standpoint or not.” - Watchtower, November 2013 Study Edition, “Seven Shepherds, Eight Dukes,” paragraph 17

    If it ever comes it will have to do with GIVE US ALL YOUR MONEY!

    It really is more Mind Control Tactics though.
    Creating more distance between the WT & JWs and the rest of the world.

    It's an exceedingly scary thing to say because if the WT leaders told JW's to jump off of a cliff to show their loyalty to " Jehovah " - some of them would do it ! That's the danger of WT leaders absolute control over these people. Remember Jim Jones & David Koresh. It's not that far fetched that WT leaders if backed into a corner with the possibility of losing their billions of $$$ might try something similar. Nothing they do would surprise me at this point in time. Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    Perhaps they may advise to ditch their Apostate Spouses ? Quite Possible.
