    from paragraph 17-

    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.

    I think I know what the instructions will be.
    It's nothing new. "Remain Loyal".

    So what's the big deal?
    This, the reason why that instruction is "
    sound from a strategic or human standpoint or not."

    The Watchtower is collapsing. The money issues, real estate transactions, lack of growth, doctrinal failures, global child sexual abuse lawsuits, money grabs. It goes on and on. The Prince death and exposure of JW's as a cult in every comment section of every media story doesn't help.

    "Staying Loyal" is the very last thing anyone should do when confronted with this hard reality that the leaders of the Watchtower are corrupt liars.

    That quote from that magazine should have been a wake up call to every Jehovah`s Witness regardless of their intellect .

    It should have been a red flag waving frantically at all members ,

    "Get out of her my people if you don`t want to share in her sins "

    Any lurkers here should look up the typical signs of what constitutes a cult , you may be surprised at how many fit the Jehovah`s Witness Religion .

    Just saying

    Be ready to obey? -- It is the next command coming that will be scary. Wt would not be the first promised thousand year reign to end prematurely, many were forced into obeying, all suffered.

    That classic comment will long be remembered as the "straw that broke the camels back"

    If that didn't raise alarm bells, then nothing will!

    It will be interesting to see reactions when the next "order" is for the R&F to send in "all of YOUR money!"


    Let's review: It's a cult!

    Jim Jones moment, next thing you know they will have loyalty test. Cult alert!

    The paragraph was specifically addressed to the elders, it's interesting to see that the WT knows how much influence the elders have. They know that their "brilliant ideas" can only go so far without the full support of the local elders.

    Most are colour blind.

    What scriptural basis do they have for this direction? Was there an example that they "drew from?" Anyone that doesn't see a problem with that statement needs to get their head examined to make sure the old meat sponge is still there.
