Jehovah's Witnesses avoid making rules and regulations beyond those provided in the Scriptures,Bear with me on this TRUE according to their definition
BECAUSE they use loaded language - a hallmark of mind control. They will insist they don't make "rules". They will however change the meaning of the word "principle" and substitute it for the word "rule" This playing with the language keeps people confused and buying into the propaganda that is heaped on them constantly
and lord help the poor person who breaks a "priniple"
Thank you, Lady Lee,
That's what I was trying to say in my long epistle. You summed it up much more nicely.
