RUMOUR - Regarding future memorials
The memorial is a big recruitment drive for them (second only to funerals). There's no way they'd abandon them.
The single most important day in the lives of millions of JW's?
The meeting that most JW's proudly declare they have never missed once in their entire lives?
The only day in the entire year where JW's feel anything remotely akin to a spiritual connection to God and Christ?
---Islam would have an easier time eliminating Ramadan.....
Maybe no money for WT in doing it?
Maybe too many apostates coming and being disruptive or distracting and partaking?
There would never have been a problem in the first place if they had followed the scriptures correctly. ALL were to partake
Matt 26:27Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28This is my blood of theb covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”
As much as I would love for this to be true, I'm sure it's as real as a $3 bill.
I just read up to a certain point
So if only the anointed come to the memorial and most congregations have none or just one or 2, what's the point. Are the non-anointed jws going to organize a party they are not invited to? I have to go back and finish that OP.
Ditto, sir82. Wishful think or entertainment or a brokenis right 2 times a day.
Could there be a misunderstanding in terms here? Or, translation (if this originated in a different language)?
Rather than "Other Sheep", could it be that it will be limited to only JWs - not "interested persons"?
That too seems doubtful, as the attendance gives them "bragging rights" as to how much "future growth" there will be.
What do you guys think?
I cannot think of anything less likely.
Don't think they want to make changes to the Memorial, it's the only holiday in the Org.
I could see other changes first like broadcasted talks for public meetings or even eliminating public talks.
