I was going to reply to another thread, but thought this might deserve a separate topic.
My observations when I was a still in.
The announcement that Jesus Christ (the CO) is visiting our local KH.
Would anyone like to "volunteer" their time, money and accommodation for Jesus Christ.
All ass lickers of said KH come forward to receive Jesus Christ.
A concerted effort for ALL to be out in the ministry that week, along with panicking elders visiting homes of those who have not been at the meetings for at least a week, offering "encouragement" so that the number of attendance is up for the week visit.
The self righteous in the KH who would never speak to you (pioneers included) and look down their noses at you all of a sudden start to speak to you.
During the visit, the elders are on their best behavior, Thanking everyone who answers up. The pioneers are martyring themselves by making cakes and practically washing the feet of the Jesus Christ.
The attendance does rise, with studies being brought along, to show Jesus Christ what a good little JW they are.
Most indoctrinated JW's practically shoot each other to have a turn on the ministry with Jesus Christ!
Then Jesus Christ goes forward to roam the earth (drive off in a car provided by the watchtower from the funds of those who just had the week visit) and continue his ministry with his wife!
Everything goes back to normal. Attendance drops, those who look down their nose at you, resume this behavior, elders start browbeating and avoiding to help others.
The floor is open, I invite more comments on your observations.
P.S. Note the use of Jesus Christ. This is my observations on how the rank and file treat the CO when he comes to visit. I call it the Jesus complex.
