My wife and I often disagree with the governing body on certain matters and will not follow all direction without thinking it through ourselves.
We both didn’t agree with the covid direction and the last few meetings before they stopped we did not go to because we thought people should have been wearing masks. They were far too late insisting on masks. All they announced at that last meeting was for older ones to stay home they still wanted everyone to keep going to the hall at that stage and no mention of wearing masks. Bad direction and we strongly disagreed.
Then the next meeting was in people’s homes we didn’t agree with that direction either and didn’t go. People were not wearing masks in these homes and were sitting in small front rooms packed together even worse than at the KH.
This was right at the start when covid was really bad and infectious and we thought the direction was wrong. It was far too late going over to zoom.
We both also disagreed with the direction to take the vaccination as did most of my family who are all JWs. I think some took the first one then regretted it and didn’t take any more. So we all went against that direction.
It’s ridiculous how the GB keep using the pandemic as an example of how following direction is for our benefit. The direction was all wrong, they were too late going over to zoom and that last few weeks of meetings did a lot of damage. Many other organisations starting proper social distancing way earlier.
Then they were wrong to force the fully vaccinated direction on everyone, and they try to take credit for giving such good direction which protected everyone.
What people should remember is they were too late with the masks and social distancing and then they should have remained neutral on vaccines. The direction was wrong.
We will think very carefully before following any direction from the faithful and discreet slave from now on.
