Secret Elders book LEAK | 2019 version Shepherd the Flock of God

The Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses have authorised today the release of a 274 page fully revised and updated 2019 PDF version of their secret elders book “Shepherd the Flock of God”.

Within minutes of the highly controlled release of the Shepherd book it has been leaked onto the internet.

Instructions have also been issued to all elders that “use of the Index to Letters for Bodies of Elders (S-22) and the letters referenced therein has been discontinued. Any printed or electronic copies of such documents should be destroyed.”

Elders that require a printed copy of the Shepherd book (item number 5436 or the mnemonic sfl) will be sent a copy “wrapped to ensure confidentiality” and delivered to the coordinator of the body of elders.

Digital revisions of the Shepherd book will be released every six months. Significant policy adjustments will be biannual.

      Here some points I noted not sure if these r different from the previous edition:
      medical marijuana is a personal choice
      Any allegations of child sexual abuse r to b given to the legal department to tell the elders how to proceed.
      Also specific instructions to not make abused persons face their accuser
      The elders should all b made aware of any sexual predators and if they move the new congregation elders should b made aware including parents of children in the congregation. This is only done if the legal department says to.
      Victims of abuse or their parents r to b advised that they can go to the police and r not to b discouraged from doing so.
      Masturbation is not pornia and is not really covered. Not sure if this is new and the org is backing away from discussing it.
      Probing sexual questions r to b avoided during a judicial committee
      Sexual offenders r not to receive any major privileges in the congregation, possibly minor ones such as handling mics after an extended time has passed.
      The elders r to clearly tell people that they r being invited to a judicial committee and what the meeting is about up front.
      Things they r still clinging to:
      Still sticking to the two witnesses rule for child abuse
      it says that attempted suicide victims may b subject to a judicial committee ( someone that has mental illness should not b subject to more trauma I find this to b so disgusting)
      Of course all the other ridiculous invasive restrictions we all have experienced
      Highlights from the book above (2019 links added)
      The three year rule is re-iterated without specific mention of "three"
      An elder or MS will be removed if he allows his adult DA'd child to move into family home
      An elder can be removed for filing for bankruptcy
      The language around the definition of rape is better - no more references to the woman having to scream
      The stayover rule is still there. If you stay in the house of a member of the opposite sex, and two people know about it, it's a judicial matter.
      "Abhorrent" forms of porn are now a DF offense. Gay, Lez, child, violent, bestial.
      Gluttony is now listed as a DF offense. Not sure if it was there before
      They have narrowed the definition of apostasy: " Deliberately Spreading Teachings Contrary to Bible Truth " the end of that sentence used to read "as taught by Jehovah's Witnesses"
      I think this the first time they explicitly stated that marking talks can be given based on misconduct from unbaptized minors
      There's a whole new section on CSA. It seems like an improvement overall and includes the child no longer having to confront her rapist in most cases, but it still doesn't have the promised female representation from Jackson's promise to the Australian court.
      Willingly taking blood remains an automatic disassociation offence.
      Reinstatement is "several months, a year or even longer"
      Ownership of kingdom halls. They make clear that regardless of what it says on the title, a congregation does not OWN their own kingdom hall.
      jw.org email - all correspondance between elders is now via the elders private account on jw.org. I guess they want to make sure they know EVERYTHING
      Congregation file: Still they say the best place to keep it is at the KH. Therefore, paper records of all judicial matters should be in those files. ALL CSA RECORDS HAVE "DO NOT DESTROY" WRITTEN ON THEM
      Here's the entire section on legal action as a result of judicial action. I think it's worth noting that it demonstrates that they will leave you alone if you write a legal letter:
       
      IF THE ACCUSED THREATENS LEGAL ACTION 18. If the accused threatens legal action against the elders, the elders should suspend proceedings and promptly telephone the Legal Department. 19. If a member ofthe media or an attorney representing the accused contacts the elders, they should not give any information about PREPARING FOR JUDICIAL HEARINGS CHAPTER 15 “SHEPHERD THE FLOCK OF GOD” the case or verify that there is a judicial committee. Rather, they should give the following explanation: “The spiritual and physical welfare of Jehovah’s Witnesses is of paramount concern to the elders, who willingly provide spiritual assistance to congregation members. The elders extend this spiritual assistance confidentially. This makes it easier for those who seek the elders’ help to do so without worrying that what they say to the elders will be divulged later. Consequently, we do not comment on whether elders are currently or have formerly met to assist any member of the congregation.” If there is a need to do so, the elders may obtain the inquirer’s name and phone number and inform him that their attorney will contact him. The elders should then promptly telephone the Legal Department. 20. Ifthe authorities request confidential congregation records or ask that elders give testimony regarding confidential congregation matters, the elders should promptly telephone the Legal Department.
       
      This seems like a big change below as it codifies what we have all been hearing about ownership of KH's:
       
      OWNERSHIP 2. A Kingdom Hall is dedicated to the worship of Jehovah. Whether the property title, or deed, is held in the name of a local corporation or by means of a trustee arrangement or it is held in the name of a legal entity managed by the branch office, no congregation should conclude that it “owns” the Kingdom Hall. However, it is the responsibility of the congregations using the property to care for it and see that it is used in harmony with Kingdom interests. 3. As many as three or four congregations may be assigned by the branch office to use the same Kingdom Hall auditorium in order to make full use of the facility and to keep expenses to a minimum. The branch office will generally correspond with only one of the congregations using the facility regarding legal, property, and related matters. Usually, this contact congregation holds the documents related to the Kingdom Hall and the property on which it is located. This is for practical reasons only and does not provide a basis for the contact congregation to make unilateral

      According to this text in "Shepherd book", page 84,85 woman in JW congregation are viewed as minor children, not entitled to hear information that are important for her marriage and family life and her life at all. JW elders look at them as a people of the second rank. Even a male underage child or teenager or young male/man, who is baptized, has a higher status than any sister, young or old, single or married, publisher, pioneer or missionary or anointed.
      Meeting With Marriage Mates
      11. If the accused is a married sister, it is best
      to have her believing husband present for the hearing.
      He is her head, and his efforts to restore her and
      direct her can be very helpful. (1 Cor. 11:3) If unusual
      circumstances are involved or the elders feel it would
      be best not to invite the husband because of their
      concerns for the safety of the wife, the elders should
      call the branch office.
      12. If the accused is a married brother, his
      wife would normally not attend the hearing. However,
      if the husband wants his wife to be present, she
      may attend a portion of the hearing. The judicial
      committee should maintain confidentiality.
      13. If the husband committed adultery, he
      has an obligation to inform his wife of the facts. The
      judicial committee should promptly inquire of the
      Christian wife as to what her husband has told her. If
      he refuses to inform her of his adultery, the elders
      should inform her that because of her husband’s
      conduct, it is up to her to decide whether to pursue a
      Scriptural divorce or not. Furthermore, they should
      inform the innocent mate that her resuming sexual
      relations with the guilty mate would negate any
      claim to Scriptural freedom. But they should not give
      her further details. On the other hand, the elders
      may find that while the husband did confess adultery
      to his wife, he did not tell her the full extent of his
      wrong conduct and left out important information
      that the wife should know. The elders should not pro-
      84 “Shepherd the Flock of God”—1 Peter 5:2
      vide this confidential information to the wife, but
      they can suggest that she speak with her husband
      again. Even if he does not tell her anything more, this
      will alert her to the fact that he is withholding information
      from her, and this may help her to determine
      whether to forgive or not.

      According introductory words in "Shepherd book", this publication is "congregation property". What would be your answer on question -What is congregation? Who are members of congregation? By normal logic all JW members are congregation and by their membership (legality of membership come through baptism) in congregation are entitled to read this book and  to get to know the content of this book. But this is not how reality looks. Many, almost all "ordinary" members even doesn't know that this book or similar written instructions exist.
      Another shocking fact from the 2010 Letter to the elders come to daylight. Instruction to elders given by GB (or from some WT Department that is under direct supervision of GB) shows us once again how this "theocratic" organization treats women's at all, and sisters as members of the congregation. Sisters are compared with unbelievers and working stuff of outsides companies. Shameful!
      This publication is congregation property. A
      copy is issued to each appointed elder. If an elder
      is deleted for reasons other than moving to
      another congregation with a favorable recommendation,
      he should turn over this handbook
      to the Congregation Service Committee. The
      secretary should keep the book in the congregation’s
      file so that it may be returned to the
      brother if he is reappointed as an elder. No
      copies are to be made of any part of this publication.
      Neither is it to be converted into any
      electronic format.

      Because of efforts to simplify this publication,
      it does not cover every aspect of our work as elders.
      At times you may need to consult other publications
      and letters to the body of elders for detailed
      information. Be alert to future direction and adjustments
      so as to stay up-to-date on theocratic direction.

      According to this text in "Shepherd book", page 38,39 elders are allowed to hide their own sins or sins of colleagues, elders.  
      19. If it comes to light or an appointed
      brother confesses that he has committed a disfellowshipping
      offense years in the past:
      The body of elders may determine he can continue to
      serve if the following is true: The immorality or other
      serious wrongdoing occurred more than a few years
      ago, and he is genuinely repentant, recognizing that
      he should have come forward immediately when he
      sinned. (Perhaps he has even confessed to his sin,
      seeking help with his guilty conscience.) He has been
      serving faithfully for many years, has evidence of
      God’s blessing, and has the respect of the congregation.
      20. If the sin occurred before he was appointed as
      an elder or a ministerial servant, the elders will need
      to take into consideration the fact that he should
      have mentioned this possible impediment to his being
      qualified when elders interviewed him just prior
      to announcing his appointment. Moreover, the nature
      of the sin may reflect greatly on his qualifications
      to serve. For example, the sin may involve past
      child abuse, and this would likely disqualify him for
      many years.—w97 1/1 pp. 26-29; w77 pp. 697-698.
      38            “Shepherd the Flock of God”—1 Peter 5:2
      21. If the wrongdoing occurred within the past few
      years while he was serving as an elder or a ministerial
      servant, he is disqualified from serving as such, not
      being “free from accusation.” (1 Tim. 3:2, 10; Titus 1:
      6, 7) Depending on the circumstances, the situation
      may also need to be handled by a judicial committee.

    • Socialists NEVER learn the lessons of History ... because they believe in "free stuff" for everybody, and are seduced by Santa Clause. THEY want to be the Santa Clause !
    • Like the standing taco shell, Samsung’s new Galaxy Fold smartphone has earned its spot in the annals of folded-things-history. After teasing techies with a sneak peek in November, Samsung took yesterday for a little chest thumping and phone folding. How ’bout some specs The Galaxy Fold—essentially a phone that expands into a tablet—starts at $1,980 (wut) and is set for an April 26th release. It boasts a 4.6-inch screen when sandwiched in half, but expands to 7.3 inches once opened. Oh, and don’t forget about its two (2) batteries and six (6) cameras. The phone is also adapted for triple-app multitasking, meaning you can text your date while also looking up the bar where you’re meeting on Google Maps while (most importantly) stalking their Facebook. Finally, the innovation we’ve been waiting for. And for all you skeptics out there… We know what you’re thinking: The smartphone market is saturated. You might be right-ish, given that Apple is looking beyond the iPhone for revenue sources in the face of lower demand. Plus, estimates show that more than 5 billion people around the world have mobile devices (more than half of which are smartphones). But Samsung isn’t flinching. CEO DJ Koh said the Galaxy Fold “breaks new ground because it answers skeptics who say everything possible has been done, that the era of smartphone innovations is over, and that the smartphone is a mature technology in a saturated market.” Zoom out, c/o Bloomberg: “It’s a leap that rivals the category shifts not seen since smartphones took off with a broad audience more than a decade ago.”  + While we’re here: If you’re scared away by the price or you've been burned one too many times by a fitted sheet, Samsung also released four new varieties of its flagship Galaxy S10 smartphone yesterday, doubling its launch roster from years past.
    • He is going to run again??? Even though there are still "Superdelegates"? Didn't he learn his lesson last time?

    • I was not that coordinated, as a young boy. I tried that but somehow ended up eating the piece of grass, and the microbes would scream as wounded,  they fell out the left and right sides of my mouth.               eek!  eek! eek! eek! eek!                                                                                                                                        eek!  eek! eek! eek! eek! .
