The problem I always had with the WT explanation of what they THINK a scripture means is that the gullible people in the hall act as IF the creator actually said that.
I never accepted anything the religion said as if actually coming from God. I always felt it was their opinion.
But what it sounds like now is that the account of Job is being used to get Witnesses to shut up and stop bellyaching. My argument against them using Job is that it was a "special" case. Not only that, his troubles had a limited time. There was a beginning and an end. Does anybody see an end to mankind's troubles? They look to be ongoing to me.
I think many are defecting from the JW religion. Some are rightfully angry about their hardships and arrogant attitude of a religion that offers nothing and exists on handouts.
I am so glad I walked away from all this and can't imagine people still sitting there lapping this up.
