i have been reading threads about how the rbc operates, so i sort of have a fair idea of what the answers will be.
but i would like to have a more direct answer to my questions.. where do the orders come from that a hall is in need of a remodel, or a new one to be built.. can the elders refuse a remodel or quickly built.. out side contractors are only allowed with rbc approval.
what are the consequences if say a kh needed a new roof, and secular contractor was hired.. is it a case that orders a given that a hall needs a remodel, and that the rbc will have total control, and look out for who ever gets in the way, and elders just have to simply comply.. this is the question i most want answered.

i recently reconnected with an old ex-jw friend who served as an elder when i was growing up.
he has since taken to the belief in reincarnation & past lives.
he lent me a copy of the many lives, many masters by brian l. weiss, m.d.

i found this interesting that the catholics are blasting wtbt$ and demanding the wtbt$ recall their misquoted information from the reasoning book under subheading of 'cross':.

i remember when i was a mind cleansed(tm) jw i would listen to the talks when i wasn't napping.. on the long tiring drive home i'd say how i ''enjoyed(tm)'' the sessions and felt ''encouraged(tm)''.. .....and yet i couldn't recall a single ''point(tm)'' made.
i couldn't remember what it was that actually made me feel good.. on one occasion i asked the family what they found ''encouraging(tm)'' or interesting.. tumble weed.

i know this article has been discussed, re-hashed upside down in past threads.
but there were at least 2 points i discovered in here that i felt were pertinent and important to bring out concerning the total control and narcissistic tendencies that these wt leaders possess on the governing body, i.e.
alleged " faithful slave " .

clearly, any jw apologist or jw friendly person who posts on this forum knows full well they are breaking their own organization's policies.
everything else is mere detail.
even before the send button is struck, the jw knows they are doing something the organization has told them not to do.

terry started a really good thread a little while ago.. http://www.jehovahs-witness.net/watchtower/beliefs/258731/1/where-did-pastor-russell-get-his-truth.
it reminded me of what the jw who studied with me and brought me into the truth said.. she said show me something better.
she qualified this by saying show me another religion that teaches the basics.. i changed subject but i suppose basics are.

"anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices.

often times, jehovah's witness elders will present themselves as humble, down-to-earth men, honest hearted and caring.
