omg. Just when you think they can’t get any more ridiculous!
Shall we all gather to laugh (or cry?)
I, for one, shall be gobsmacked, lol.
It seems David Splane fancies himself a composer, and is heavily weighed down with the importance of making sure his flock sing his songs with all appropriateness, respect, boldness, fearlessness, vigor and vim, etc.
But my god, better make sure the sisters (and children and any possible newly-interested people) aren’t singing these weighty words of instruction, counsel, and admonition aloud toward any brothers, especially those glorious ones, the princes of the earth, the stars in Jesus’ right hand! (Otherwise known as ‘elders’, no matter their age, or to little baptized boys, or toward any male, for that matter!) *gasp!*
Can you feel the weight of this responsibility?? My gods, we should shiver in awe at the magnificent ways Jehovah/Splane/et all, are shouldering this great work in this Time of The End!
Sing, you people!! And know and value and understand the importance of it!! But please read the fine print and caveats toward sisters, these potential (possibly powerful?) Jezebels!!
Sisters, thou shall not sing instructions toward any powerful (baptized) male!! Know thy place, yet sing with boldness (though too much boldness may be dealt with as further addendums in future study articles!)
Are we not amazed and thankful that Jehovah/Splane/Morris/Lett/et all, are providing their flock with such important spiritual guidance in these critical times?!? Thank goodness we have this timely spiritual food to sustain us through these momentous days.
