In this week's WT the sheep are taught that a possible prosecution (currently child abuse) is in reality only a persecution because of faith. Poor sheep.
*** w19 February p. 10 par. 11 Seek Meekness and Please Jehovah ***
When persecuted: Throughout history, human rulers have persecuted Jehovah’s people. They may charge us with various “crimes,” but the real issue is that we choose to “obey God as ruler rather than men.” (Acts 5:29) We might be ridiculed, imprisoned, or even physically mistreated. With Jehovah’s help, however, we will not retaliate but will remain mild throughout the test.Nothing about Romans 13:1-4.
