"As you meet with inactive ones, please convey the love and concern of the Governing Body"
Wow! another great loving provision! Clearly Jehovah's direction.
What is their arrangement for people that are not disfellowshipped but that are unofficially shunned?
Inactive Ones: Please follow closely the instructions in the May 23, 2010, letter to all bodies of elders as you endeavor to invite inactive ones to the Memorial and special talk. As you meet with them, please convey the love and concern of the Governing Body and the local congregation. (1 Thess. 2:7, 8) Offer to help with transportation or to provide any other practical assistance so that they can be in attendance.
My note: You drag me to the crapmorial, I will do all I can to ruin it. Including spilling the spoiled grape juice on purpose. Including placing a copy of Led Zeppelin IV into the CD player, or putting a SD card or USB stick into the system that will place a MP3 of that album into their system, so they will have to listen to it. I doubt they will be giving the talk through 95 dB of Led Zeppelin music going through the whole program.
Hopefully, the power goes out and their backup emergency lighting system craps out. And I hope I am the only one in the whole place with a flashlight, which I will use it to guide myself out and not lift a finger to help anyone else. They want to trust in joke-hova, let joke-hova help them.
Is it just me or do I have a blind spot .
Have they failed to state the date of the 2017 Memorial ?
They give the date for 2018 and 2019 but not the date for 2017 . LOL
What a dilemma for them.
Cast off and shun the inactive ones so they have no detrimental influence on any active ones, or plead for their return to keep the numbers up because no one is coming in via the preaching work anymore.
Either way, there's no Grand Increase anymore.
Something is "speeding up in it's own time", but it's not what they expected.
"Inactive ones"... "Memorial Saints' we used to call them.
As you meet with them, please convey the love and concern of the Governing Body and the local congregation.
Yuk! Looks like GB worship again.
How arrogant! "Please convey the love of the GB?" How about the love of Jesus?
