How long until WT has flip flopped its way back to anything of the faith many of us knew? Who are the now dead ones giving evidence of their non captivity to Babylon etc? I would not recognise what goes on in a KH now and I was in since 60s when we had firm beliefs, now being eroded little by little. Biggest change for me is the financial basis of the religion now, in my days never a mention of contributing, although WT had a steady stream of income from publications . GB2 are a constant amazement to me with their publicity loving methods. Back in the day we delighted to hear Knorr or Franz in a foggy Murrayfield assembly late at night, but really had no constant association with them via TV. Is new headquarters being equipped with an Inspiration Room, lined on the walls with beliefs over the years, so they can pluck one off and "adjust it". I could not cope today as almost everything I believed is wrong, or adjusted. Would need to say nothing to anyone if I was to have stayed in as not able to keep pace with downward progression. Or is this a plan to constantly adjust things to keep faithful busy so constant money fraud can continue in new circumstances.
How many here would not fit in to the organisation today, apart from apostasy of course, but from position of in depth knowledge of truth before you became aware of TTATT
I mention occasional bits and pieces to relatives still in and they not aware of changes. Are current crop of JWs less educated than in past, less able to absorb material.
In 65 a series of WT articles covered The Ressurection, the brothers then awaited each new magazine with genuine interest, do present set let it all wash over them?
sorry for length, just amazed at almost complete turnabout of religion and no internal backlash
