Many of us have watched the GB #4 update. Most of us jumped for joy when they basically said that there will be no meeting in person for a long time to come.
One aspect we overlooked was how hard they hit home the "Love of neighbor". How this "love" is what makes a true christian and as a result our love for our neighbors will motivate us to stay at home.
Well now they released a letter that is instructing all KH's to view this video during their local needs part. It doesn't stop there though. They then want time after the video for the brothers to give a talk on "local application". Basically, saying to stay at home.
Here's where it gets even more interesting. The letter a few months back added that it was up to "each family head" to make a decision that is best for their family.
Take this new video, local needs + that line about family head and you have what they've been setting up for. You are not "exemplary" if you are not showing love of neighbor by staying at home. Therefore, say goodbye to Brother DoGood's privileges when he goes out unnecessary and not displaying love for neighbor.
Take it a step further, how can a appointed brother go out now since he won't be setting a good example for the "sheep". Brother SpirituallyWeak will point to Elder NotShowingLove going out, so why can't he?
Man am I glad I am out. They're going full cult on Zoom. You never go full cult.
