You said "I wanted to post this because many JWs are waking up, NOT because of the internet or apostate material, but just because of the Extreme changes the Organization is implementing."
That is so true. That is what happened to me.
Back in 2006 a Circuit overseer said in a talk "The devil keeps me so busy, the system keeps
us so busy. One brother said 'You think the governing body will have us have fewer
meetings?' I said 'What?!!' He said 'They are in Bethel and we are in the real world. The
economy is terrible and gas prices. You ever think we will have fewer meetings because we
are working so hard?' I said 'Are you serious? Are you kidding me? The deeper we are in
the end, the more meetings we have to have. Because you said that I will write the governing
body had hope we double our meetings. I need more meetings."
