Don’t know if it was part of the script.
At the memorial the remark about growing annointed numbers including this numbers from 2015 to 2017 was made (from 13.000 to 18.000+).
Reason for the growing numbers could be:
- feeling annointed because of former believe
- psychical reasons
- because of growing JW numbers it could be a normal issue that annointed numbers grow
I heard the speaker and thought If you are annointed you would be stumbled to need an excuse to be part of it.
