" But Brother GB member what about all the misguided false teachings handed out by the self described FDSL of the organization ? "
Answer ....... well it was still intelligent disobedience then.
" Ok that makes sense "
As a general rule I have found this to be true.
As I have said before and will say yet again Jehovahs Witnesses speak out of both sides of their mouth .
They speak with a forked tongue.
When you confront them with one thing they have said in print ,they can always quote an opposite thing they have said in print and if you challenge them about it ? What you say is old light and what they say is new light.
interesting in this context were also the following videos, which left a little more room for personal decsions than the usual "I stop anything secular (job, entertainment, etc) and go full time service"
a new trend ? or just the normal up and down, between tighten up and loosening....
