Luke 21:11 says:There will be great earthquakes, and in one place after another food shortages and pestilences;+ and there will be fearful sights and from heaven great signs. But verse 12 says:But before all these things happen, people will lay their hands on you and persecute you,+ handing you over to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and governors for the sake of my name.
So I think I figured out how they are going to play out this ARC scenario for the Society, just in case many of us have heard about it but the org. hasn't said anything about it yet...
1. They show the video of child abuse in Australia (this part is to let you know they know some of us know about the ARC).
2.Now we know the org. sympathizes with child abuse.
3. Now Luke 21:11 talks about the signs, yet Luke 2:12, says these signs will not happen until the people lay hands on you & persecute you, handling you over to the synagogues & prisons. Blah blah blah..
4. Many of the friends will say or think we haven't been persecuted or handed over as of yet...so...Here's where the Society starts the spin..
5. Org. says, Oh yes, many of you have no knowledge of the current child abuse situation, & we didn't want to alarm the friends into a panic. This has been going on for quite some time again, we wanted to keep it from you friends...we know how much this system is such a burden on the friends...we thought we could handle it without burdening the friends.
6. For a while now the Australian gov't/courts system has been persecuting the JW's. We don't know how this is going to play out but we want to let you know we may be persecuted & be put in prison, but no matter we will keep our integrity & uphold Jehovah's sovereignty....
7. Why are we being persecuted? Satan knows we are living in the end too..So he has motivated some spiritually weak friends to accuse the org. of child abuse, knowing about it & hiding it.
8. We are trying to fight it, but they are just accusations. The Society abhors child abuse now & always have.
9. The society put out a video the week of 9/12 about how empathetic we are about child abuse. We don't tolerate child abuse in the org.
The friends will eat it up... because most of them are brain dead...they will say....you see the Society never hides anything from us.
The final step is...So to fight this good fight we are asking for your prayers & your financial support to fight off Satans' attack..
So guys what do you think...this is all made-up...but I thought it was good...
