I have an uneasy feeling inside that something is coming this year or the next. Perhaps a new big announcement that turns JWdom on it's head.
We've seen the statement in the Watchtower November 15th, 2013 which said:
Watchtower November 15th, 2013 - page 20, paragraph 17.
I'm sure i dont need to go into great lengths talking about how chilling and worrying that paragraph is. For a religion who's belief system is based on paranoia about armageddon, persecution and the belief that we and our children dont belong to ourselves the possibilities for a dangerous outcome is very high.
The term "adjust their thinking" is also quite concerning. Using synonyms for each word "adjust" their "thinking" becomes "change" their "mind".
Then we've seen in the leaked 2018 convention videos the subtle and not so subtle hints to "just go along with what the GB say".
One of the videos shows three sisters discussing the arrangement to move them into different congregations away from their family. The "good" sister acknowledges that the decision the elders came to doesn't make any sense but remarks:
10:22: Whether is makes sense or not, im going to support that arrangement.
WAIT... stop a second. You admit it doesn't make any sense, but you're going to support it any way?
People "support" something they understand and believe in. I myself "support" the Labour party in Britain. I looked into their policys, their agenda, their aims and their history and i decided that they're a political party that i would back.
Imagine if you will, if i lived in 1930 in Germany. A political party called The National Socialist German Workers Party (NAZI) comes along and, although i dont understand their aims, i decide to support them anyway. What are the consequences of my "just going along with it?". By 1945 looking back on what's happened and the result of many people "just going along with it" could i honestly have cause to complain?
The "bad" sister in the video was absolutely right to ask why the arrangement has been put in place. She had every right to discuss, critique and offer counter ideas - that's in the normal world. And the video shown that she was "bad" for thinking for herself and trusting her own mind.
They're really pushing this now. Maybe the GB know their teachings are based on wrong dates? Maybe the GB are going to drop the 1914 teaching but still expect the rank and file to "just go along with it"? I dont know.
