There's been a change. A rather big one. And the Kevin Bunkers of the world beware.
JW elders no longer need to "turn the other cheek".
In the Governing Bastard's desperation, they have given a new directive to elders. Violence is now sanctioned!
I know, I know. Some are going to say this is just made up or a rumour.
Well, it ain't...
The direction was quite specific but still opens pandora's box.
Two elders will approach an "apostate" who is in the kingdumb hall. They are not to touch him physically, however, if the person strikes out first, then it's open season baby. Put the hurt on the boy.
No more turning the cheek. The Watchtower has now adopted the strategy of war. They are no different than the military's of the world. They may defend themselves.
Taken to the next level, all the witness to said beatin'... are, well.... witnesses, JW that is. And it really doesn't matter who struck first when all the witnesses will say it was apostate Joe who dunnit.
If a tree falls in the forest, and only dubs are present, did it really make a sound? I guess we will have to wait to see what the GB says....
