Pubsinger - here is the link to the downloadable document. It is titled
Submissions on behalf of Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of Australia & Others
It is a very long document and comments can be found on this forum shortly after it was released, nearly a year ago.
I am sooooo happy about this. Its raining outside and yet, it feels like its a sunny summer day!
Alleluia!! Praise the lord! Amen!
LOL! Yep, it appears that the GB can make mistakes in both doctrine and organizational procedures! "What doctrine???", you may ask. The "two witness" rule, of course! "What procedures???", you enquire. The "two witness" rule and the non-reporting of child rape!
Make no mistake, the February WT article is in direct response to the potential outcome of the RC and the numerous cases of sexual abuse and the investigations into the WTBTS's charitable status. These problems are costing the cult $$$$$$$$$$$!!!!!!!
The February WT statement reeks of WT Legal! Those assholes couldn't get the article printed fast enough! If they could build a time machine and place that sentence in this week's WT, they would.
Back when I was still (nominally) a believer and hadn't started fading yet - but had concluded that the Big A wasn't coming any time soon - I started thinking to myself...
..."You know, the Society better start changing things up, or they're going start to have real problems, 'cause 'staying the course' and waiting for Armageddon to bail them out ain't gonna cut it much longer"...
...and this was long before I'd even learned the full extent of the endemic child abuse issue.
When I first saw the amazing sweeping statement about the GB, the first thing I thought of was, 'how is money involved here'?
The child abuse is the first thing that springs to mind. However, we will see.
