    I've only just stopped laughing.

    In my old hall there's a brother who's now claiming to be of the anointed.

    He's 28.

    I do wonder if he's doing this for attention, if he's awake and messing with them, or if he really is that deluded. When i was in he was an MS. Which surprised even me because only a year earlier than that he was "a bit of a lad", is rubbish at talks and relies on his elder uncle to get him out of trouble all the time.

    I guess this now means he's get his pick of JW sisters. He's been after the same one as the rest of his peers since 2014.

    Perhaps he believes he is anointed because of mental or emotional problems. You know, just like the Governing Body.

    It's amazing what MDMA will do to these youngsters.

    is he a bit of a loon PE? I remember when my mates dad started taking the emblems and when I questioned how daft it was I was rebuked and chided and told that he must be of the anointed because he is very "spiritual"

    Let's be real. Don't you find that most who say they're anointed are a bit "off"?

    I knew quite a few self-professed anointed and nary a one would I consider normal...and I would say the same if they weren't JWs.

    And by "not normal", I don't mean I am better than them. I mean the ones I knew had deep issues be it emotional, mental, delusional or otherwise.

    Before I left there was an 18 year old kid in my congregation that decided he was anointed. Real self-righteous little prick, that one.

    Why would any girl want to be involved with someone who will go to heaven... you know next Tuesday?

    I do wonder if he's doing this for attention, if he's awake and messing with them, or if he really is that deluded - my money's on the latter.

    back in the 60's there was a couple--i guess--late 30's ?--he rarely attended--didnt work for a living..but they had numerous children. his haggard wife used to drag some of the kids to the meetings.

    then one memorial--he partook of the emblems . there was uproar about it. one bro said " well--he may be going to heaven--but he will be leaving his own great crowd on earth "
