    Thank you for these files.

    I notice that the governing body in their April 2022 addendum to the Shepherd The Flock Book says, "Under these circumstances, it is wise to refrain from defending your faith."

    Yet the Bible that they profess to follow, and claim is the inspired words of Jehovah God Himself says, "15 But sanctify the Christ as Lord in your hearts, always ready to make a defense before everyone who demands of you a reason for the hope you have."

    What they tell the eldurrs is in direct opposition to the Bible. Why am I not surprised? What is the biblical penalty for obeying men rather than God?

    You said it! This quote: "to refrain from defending your faith" is causing a lot of talk in the exjw community.

    A lot of people noticed that statement right off the bat.

    In other words: They have "no faith" to defend!

    refrain from defending your faith."

    So--Why do you believe 1914 is the beginning of the last days?

    NO COMMENT.

    Why do you refuse blood transfusions but accept blood fractions?

    NO COMMENT

    Why do you disfellowship AND SHUN members who don't want to worship the way you do?

    Why do you believe ONLY YOU WILL BE SAVED?

    Hey, Atlantis! Hope all is well with you and yours. Especially hope that sweet Petra is well and happy! Take care, my friend.

    And thank you again for all the hard work and the great service you provide our community. Without you and your helpers, many of these documents would remain hidden forever and never exposed to the light of day. You're doing a yeoman's work!

    Good observation! Or, I would like to answer your question, but I have been told not to defend my faith! You see, our governing body members are a bunch of fat belly Scotch drinkers, and don't feel we need to defend our faith.

    Yes, Petra is doing very well and now she is taking "medical" classes at a college over there. She will be helping her aunt who is a professor for female care. They do all sorts of things to help ladies recover who have been through rough times. They do the same things over here in the US, in private homes and shelters.

    Ok my friend, what will it be? Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, or German cold beer? Your choice!

    Atlantis!

    Thanks, Atlantis. I don't have as much time as in the past to post, part of me wishes there were "highlights" of this or Cliff Notes. Thanks for all your hard work for us and others.
