No me vuelvas a llamar, 

Tratando de explicar, 

Que lo que vi no era cierto.

 Vergüenza debes tener, 

Si me quieres convencer, 

Que eres fiel y eres sincero. 

Oh, te vi con ella no puedes negar, 

Que eran tus labios los que la besaban,

Canalla! No te sirvió de nada, el disimular, 

Que solo, charlaban, no mientas mas! 

(coro) 

Si me vuelves a llamar, 

Yo te vuelvo a colgar, 

Ya me cansé de escuchar,

 Oh excusas, y más mentiras.

 No me vuelvas a llamar, 

No te voy a perdonar,

 Otra oportunidad, 

No te la doy, No vales la pena.

 Vergüenza debes tener 

Si me quieres convencer

 Que eres fiel y eres sincero 

Oh, te vi con ella y no puedes negar 

Que eran tus labios los que la besaban 

Canalla! No te sirvió de nada 

El disimular Que sólo charlaban

 No mientas más.

 (coro)

Si me vuelves a llamar, 

Yo te vuelvo a colgar, 

Ya me cansé de escuchar,

 Oh excusas, y más mentiras.

      “DURING the past decade, some 400 Roman Catholic priests have been reported to church or civil authorities for sexual abuse of children,” according to U.S.News & World Report. Recently, a national gathering of survivors of such abuse was held near Chicago, Illinois. Many spoke openly of how they had been victimized by pedophile priests.
      But NCR (National Catholic Reporter) notes that speakers sounded another theme repeatedly throughout the conference: “The first abuse is sexual; the second and more painful, is psychological.” This second abuse occurs when the church refuses to listen to victims of abuse, fails to take their accusations seriously, and moves only to protect the offending priests. “Fairly or unfairly,” NCR reports, “they portrayed Catholic clergy as belonging to an unhealthy and misguided group more bent on preserving privilege and power than in serving lay needs.” Several speakers made ominous comparisons to the Reformation, which split the church wide open in the 16th century.
      According to Richard Sipe, a former priest turned psychotherapist and expert on sexual abuse by Catholic clergy, all this institutional denial reveals “a deep, desperate and knowing personal involvement in the problem.” He added: “The church knows and has known for a long time a great deal about the sexual activity of its priests. It has looked the other way, tolerated, covered up and simply lied about the broad spectrum of sexual activity of its priests.”
      Not surprisingly, then, many abuse survivors are suing the church. NCR quotes one attorney who specializes in such cases as saying that there are pedophile-priest cases in each of the church’s 188 dioceses in the United States. He says that out-of-court settlements have run as high as $300,000 per case. U.S.News & World Report says that such suits have already cost the church $400,000,000, a figure that could surge to $1 billion by the year 2000. And the Canadian Press reported recently that some 2,000 survivors of childhood sexual abuse in 22 church-run orphanages and mental institutions in Quebec are suing six religious orders for $1.4 billion in damages.
      Interestingly, though, the aforementioned U.S. attorney, who represents 150 victims of pedophile priests in 23 states, says that he has never yet had a client who was eager to go to court. Each one first tried to seek justice “within the pastoral context of the church.” NCR concludes: “Survivors go to the courts, it appears, not as a first resort, but as a last resort."

      ¿Cree que Abrahán, su padre, promueve la idolatría al apoyar eventos que hacen para "recordar a Selena"? ¿Es buen testimonio que se lucre de la música que ella cantaba al no andar en La Verdad? Música que publican en diferentes versiones cada vez para atraer al público.

      Do you think that her father Abraham Quintanilla risks promoting idolatry by observing “remembrances” and other shows? Isn’t he profiting from her sin by releasing her songs she made while having left “the truth” to make songs turning her into a “star” that other idolize?   Or would it be ok if he donated the money to the Watchtower society?

      The Tejano artist’s distinctive style and sound continues to have a huge influence on her community 22 years after her death.
      arrive to Fiesta de la Flor, the Selena tribute festival, right before the Tejano artist and Corpus Christi native Megan Chapa takes the stage. Chapa wears a pink and purple sequined onesie, flesh-colored fishnets, and the silver rhinestone heels of a diva. Her voice has deep emotional range, and she calls out, “This one is dedicated to the angel of Tejana,” before she begins a Selena cover.
      For Selena fans everywhere, the late artist is not only an angel; she has been canonized like a saint. Selena’s image, meaning, and significance to Latinas is of the highest importance. She appears on murals, statues, and on paintings throughout South Texas, Los Angeles, and even crosses the border to Mexico. Her significance to Latina identity is that of a literal icon.

      Hoy en un sueño te encontré
      como un loco te besé
      y estrenamos nuestro amor
      hoy lejos de la realidad
      conocí la eternidad
      en un abrazo tuyo

      Como me duele saber
      que esto es algo que solo soñé
      nos desgarramos de placer
      Una promesa quedó
      nos juramos lealtad sin testigos
      comprometimos el alma

      Hoy me doy cuenta que te amé
      que mi vida la dejé
      en un sueño que soñé
      ayer...ayer

      Como me duele saber
      que esto es algo que solo soñé
      nos desgarramos de placer
      una promesa quedó
      nos juramos lealtad sin testigos
      comprometidos
      tu y yo unidos
      comprometimos el alma

      Hoy me doy cuenta que te amé
      que mi vida la dejé
      en un sueño que soñé...
      ayer.

      Late at night when all the world is sleeping
      I stay up and think of you
      And I wish on a star that somewhere you are
      Thinking of me too

      Cause I'm dreaming of you tonight
      Till tomorrow I'll be holding you tight
      And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
      Than here in my room dreaming about you and me

      Wonder if you ever see me
      And I wonder if you know I'm there
      If you looked in my eyes
      Would you see what's inside
      Would you even care?

      I just wanna hold you close
      But so far all I have are dreams of you
      So I wait for the day (wait for the day)
      And the courage to say how much I love you
      Yes I do!

      I'll be dreaming of you tonight
      Till tomorrow I'll be holding you tight
      And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
      Than here in my room dreaming about you and me

      (Corazón)
      I can't stop dreaming of you
      (No puedo dejar de pensar en ti)
      I can't stop dreaming
      (Cómo te necesito)
      I can't stop dreaming of you
      (Mi amor, cómo te extraño)

      Late at night when all the world is sleeping
      I stay up and think of you
      And I still can't believe
      That you came up to me and said I love you
      I love you too!

      Now I'm dreaming with you tonight
      Till tomorrow and for all of my life
      And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
      Than here in my room dreaming with you endlessly
      With you tonight
      And there's nowhere in the world where I'd rather be
      Than here in my room I'll be dreaming
      With you tonight
      (In my sleep)

      Junté lo mas hermoso
      Que viví yo contigo
      Los detalles las cosas
      Que me harán recordarte
      Ahora voy a marcharme
      Pues tu lo decidiste
      Lo comprendo y me alejo
      No sin antes decirte
      Que el tiempo que duró nuestro amor
      Tu me hiciste feliz
      Y en mi adios te deseo lo mejor
      Pero estes donde estes
      Nunca voy a olvidarte
      Yo te juro que no
      Trataré de olvidarte
      Si tu quieres mi amor
      Para mi no me importa

      The Internet is a sea of purple and vintage Prince photos today, and for good reason. The legendary pop icon would have celebrated his 58th birthday today.
      The governor of his beloved home state, Minnesota has declared June 7 as Prince Day in honor of the musical genius. While the world stamps social media tributes with #HappyBirthdayPrince, it’s important to note that the enigmatic star actually didn’t celebrate his own birthday. To Prince, June 7 was always just another day.
      Prince is among a group of beloved entertainers who didn’t believe in celebrating birthdays, due to their faith as Jehovah’s Witnesses. Another beloved icon, Selena Quintanilla, is also in that group. Although she’s celebrated long and wide on both her birthday and the anniversary of her death, there were no personal celebrations or birthday cards for the Tejano beauty. Two weeks after Selena was brutally gunned down on March 31, 1995, then-governor of Texas, George W. Bush, declared the singer’s birthday Selena Day.
      I didn’t realize that Prince didn’t celebrate his birthday until this year. It caused me to pause a minute — as a huge lifelong Prince fan, June 7 was a national holiday in my family since I was three years old. I declared him the love of my life before pre-school, and celebrated by listening to his music for the entire day, and wearing purple when mom gave me the green light to dress myself on my own.
      With such incredible legacies, it’s rather poetic that artists like Prince and Selena even transcend the idea of an ordinary birthday celebration. The holidays, the candlelit memorials and purple lit dance parties do them more justice than any mere mortal’s birthday cake.

      Jesús es más que una simple y llana teoría
      ¿qué haces hermano leyendo la Biblia todo el día?
      lo que ahí está escrito se resume en amor, vamos ve y practícalo
      Jesús hermanos míos es verbo no sustantivo
      Jesús es más que un templo de lujo con tendencia barroca
      él sabe que total a la larga esto no es más que roca
      la iglesia se lleva en el alma y en los actos no se te olvide
      Jesús hermanos míos es verbo no sustantivo
      Jesús es más que persignarse, hincarse y hacer de esto alarde
      él sabe que quizá por dentro la conciencia les arde
      Jesús es más que una flor en el altar salvadora de pecados
      Jesús hermanos míos es verbo no sustantivo
      Jesús es más que un grupo de señoras de muy negra conciencia
      que pretenden ganarse el cielo con club de beneficencia
      si quieres tu ser miembro activa tendrás que presentar a la directiva
      tu cuenta de ahorros en Suiza y vínculos oficiales
      Jesús convertía en hechos todos sus sermones
      que si tomas café es pecado dicen los mormones
      tienen tan poco que hacer que andan inventando cada cosa
      Jesús hermanos míos es verbo no sustantivo
      Jesús no entiende por que en el culto le aplauden
      hablan de honestidad sabiendo que el diezmo es un fraude
      a Jesús le da asco el pastor que se hace rico con la fe
      Jesús hermanos míos es verbo no sustantivo
      Me bautizaron cuando tenia 2 meses y a mi no me avisaron
      hubo fiesta piñata y a mi no me lo preguntaron
      bautízame tú Jesús por favor, así entre amigos
      se que odias el protocolo hermano mío
      De mi barrio la más religiosa era doña Carlota
      hablaba de amor al prójimo y me pinchó cien pelotas
      desde niño fui aprendiendo que la religión no es más que un método
      con el título "prohibido pensar" que ya todo está escrito
      Señores no dividan la fe las fronteras son para los países
      en este mundo hay mas religiones que niños felices
      Jesús pensó "me haré invisible para que todos mis hermanos
      dejen de estar hablando tanto de mí y se tiendan la mano"
      Jesús eres el mejor testigo del amor que te profeso
      tengo la conciencia tranquila por eso no me confieso
      rezando 2 padres nuestros el asesino no revive a su muerto
      Jesús hermanos míos es verbo no sustantivo
      Jesus no bajes a la tierra quédate ahí arriba
      todos lo que han pensado como tu hoy están boca arriba
      olvidados en algún cementerio, de equipaje sus ideales
      murieron con la sonrisa en los labios
      porque fueron verbo y no sustantivo

    • I guess - according to you -  we can throw out all the scriptures which indicate the anointed will have heavenly bodies such as 1 cor 15 and revelations - too many places to mention.  Not even those which show they will be changed in an instant. And the scriptures in Hebrews which indicate that they will be priests in the heavenly temple of jehovah.   Jehovah is perfect in logic, so why give a heavenly body when a physical body is more suited to the earth?  The marriage of the lamb will take place where? Did Jesus give up his earthly body to receive a heavenly  spiritual body? And did he really say to his disciples they will be with him where he is? Agh, there are just too many scriptures which indicate it is a heavenly kingdom and heavenly rulership....and a heavenly priesthood - a function you have forgotten about by just wanting to " rule"......... .which tells me you are up to your same old, same old behaviours.  You boast you are of the body of christ...... so which "body" do you belong to which has perfect unity? . How many members?  Where do you meet?  And are you and your adherents fulfilling the prophesy that the good news of the kingdom will be preached throughout the earth?     
    • And they sing a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals, for you were slaughtered and with your blood you bought people for God out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, 10  and you made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are to rule as kingsr over the earth.”Rev 5:9,10 - NWT As a JW, this sounded accurate to me, since it fit the supporting doctrine that the “144,000” will rule strictly from heaven – “over” the earth...not within its vicinity, but from the spiritual realm.  What I have since learned about this scripture and Christ’s truth regarding where the anointed will be “ruling” from, has been an important turning point for me. Notice how the organization’s own Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures breaks down vs. 10: “and you made them to the God of us kingdom and priests and they are reigning upon the earth” Here are a few other examples: “And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”  Scripture4all.org “…they will reign upon the earth”.  https://biblehub.com/interlinear/revelation/5-10.htm It is very rare to find a Bible translation using the phrase “over the earth” in this scripture. The organization’s latest pictorial depiction of the 144,000 kings/priests ruling in heaven was of a vast array of emerald green thrones where men appearing identical to one another and to Christ, gazed over the earth as Christ’s “co-rulers”.  I wonder what the anointed JW women feel about a female’s apparent transition into a man, who are clones of each other.  This teaching sounds ridiculous to me today.  However, since the role of JW women is repeatedly slighted, should we expect any acknowledgement of the anointed being both male and female?  I could be in error, but I haven’t seen any photos of women partaking in the magazines.  There is no Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.  Gal 3:28 To be one in Christ does not mean the faithful sealed anointed take on the same physical appearance as Christ. All of the members of a fleshly body are distinctly different in appearance; working separately yet collectively, with the unified goal to allow the body to work efficiently.  It is the same in the Body of Christ. 1 Cor 12:15-20  All are given various gifts, and all are individuals with individual personalities. They have abilities reflecting the gift they receive.  Paul described it this way: There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.  1 Cor 12:4-6 If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body. 1 Cor 12:19,20 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For we were all baptized byone Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14 Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many. 1 Cor 12:12-14 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.  Eph 4:11-16 The 144,000 are the Bride of Christ under the New Covenant “woman”/promise.   (2 Cor 11:2; Eph 5:29-32; Gal 4:26) It is curious that the WT's leaders rarely go into detail about this.  When I recall their latest illustration described above, I don’t believe the artist had the idea of “bride” in mind. I could only sense an aura of steely authority, without the needed compassion and love that Jesus exhibited and taught his disciples to nurture within themselves. (Isa 42:3; Matt 14:14; John 13:34,35; 1 John 4: 17; Heb 4:15) Just as a bride and groom are not identical to each other, neither is Christ’s Bride of many members; either to Christ, or to one another, as the illustration erroneously shows. (1 Cor 12:29,30; Eph 4:11-13)  Marriage partners compliment and support each other in love.  It is the same with the Body of Christ, being united in one Spirit that imparts love, faith and knowledge of Christ and the Father. The organization’s leaders are unable to perceive this spiritual unity, since they have rejected the Spirit of Christ, in exchange for the spirit of Satan.  (John 15:4-7;1 Cor 6:15-17; 2 Cor 11:3; 2 Pet 1:10; Rev 2:4; 8:10;13:11) Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.  1 Cor 2:12-14  In order to “rule on the earth”, God’s priests must be on the earth.  If we can shed the false belief that once the 144,000 are sealed in “heaven” they will remain there, we are then able to grasp how such “heavenly” angel/messenger/priests will be found ruling, teaching, and helping God’s future children on the earth.  (Mal 2:7; 1 Pet 2:5,9; Heb 1:14; Rev 5:9,10)   We can comprehend God’s “new creation” as having two “births”; one by fleshly parents through Adam and Eve, (Gen 2:7) and one by spiritual parents.  (John 3:3,5; 1 Cor 15:50; John 15:45; 20:22; Gal 4:26) Once Jesus was resurrected, he appeared many times to his disciples in the flesh; and just as easily, disappeared into the spirit realm.   His example set the precedence of what it means to be a “new creation”.  (Mark 16:12; John 21:14; 1 Cor 15:3-8)  By combining this event with Pearl Doxsey's help from her article, “Who are the gods?”, we can visualize the 144,000 “angels” present not only in the spirit realm, but on earth as well: The sons of God ("gods") inherit the promises given to Abraham. What promises are these? "I will make you very fruitful (John 15:8) I will make nations of you (Rev 5:9,10), and kings will come from you (Rev 20:4; 1:5; 3:21; 19:16,15; 2:26,27)". “Jacob had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.  There above it stood the Lord, and he said: "I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying  (Ps 37:29; Heb 2:5,16; Gal 3:29; Heb 11:8-10; 13:14; Rev 21:2; Heb 12:22,23; Luke 10:20) (Gen.17:6).  Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring (Rev 22:2). I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go (Matt 28:20), and I will bring you back to this land (Rev 21:7).  I will not leave you (John 14:18) until I have done what I have promised you (John 16:22).  Jacob was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place (Heb 12:22,23,28)! This is none other than the house of God (1 Cor 3:9,16; Isa 56:7; Eph 2:19,10); this is the gate of heaven (Rev 11:6; Matt 16:19; Rev 3:12; John 10:9; 2 Cor 5:20)." (Gen.28:12-15,17) "Jesus added, “Very truly I tell you, you will see ‘heaven open (Luke 24:32; Rev 2:17; Matt 13:11; Rev 4:1; 1:1)  (John 3:12; 1 Cor 2:12,13; Col 3:2), and the angels of God ascending and descending (Heb 12:22; Eph 2:6; Rev 3:21) "on* (Greek--*"in service to") the Son of Man.” (John 1:51) The "angels" (Lit. Greek, "messengers" – Isa 43:10,21; 1 Pet 2:9; Mal 2:7; Acts 1:8) referred to here, could not have served before the time of Christ (John 3:13) Jesus specifically said that they are in service on "the Son of Man" (1 Cor 4:1).  The "Son of Man" is Jesus in the flesh (John 1:14). Therefore, these angels serve Christ, after his coming down from heaven.  To be a messenger of Christ ("ambassador") who harbors God's spirit of life within... who has been made new (Rom 12:2; 8:11) as a part of God's new creation (2 Cor 5:17) by means of incorruptible seed, the Word of God (1 Pet 1:23; Luke 8:11)... …who has been reborn as a Son of the Most High (John 3:3,5; Rom 8:16,17,19,28-30)... who has been made an immovable pillar in the eternal heavenly Temple of God (Rev 3:12; Prov 9:1; Jer 1:18)... ...is a "god" (Ps 82:6; Rom 8:14; 1 Cor 8:5).  I do hope readers here find this information to be a personal turning point as it was for me, in learning that both Christ and the 144,000 kings and priests/ Bride of Christ, will have access to heaven as well as on earth, and living among God’s future children in the Kingdom. “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matt 5:14  Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. Rev 21:1-3  “But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple” Rev 21:22 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5 There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. Rev 22:3-5 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 1 Cor 3:16 Pearl Doxsey: (type in her name and the title of the article in the search bar.

    • We do have very good reasons, the math for 1914 wouldn't work out otherwise Yes, I think we would laugh. After all, messing around with numbers to "fit something you want it to fit" sounds pretty cultish. When looking at this subject again, in light of Br. Splane's talk about types and antitypes, and how he said that (paraphrased) we have to make sure that when we are talking about types, that they are genuine types, because the word of God says they are puts a whole different slant on it. Then the idea is enforced even further when he says who is to decide if a person or event is a type, if the word of God doesn't say anything about it and he quotes Br. Shroeder: ( We need to exercise great care when applying accounts in the Hebrew Scriptures as prophetic patterns or types if these accounts are not applied in the Scriptures themselves). Therefor reading the account in Daniel 4 without any preconceived ideas, I see these main lessons: verse 17  "This is by the decree of watchers, and the request is by the word of the holy ones, so that people living may know that the Most High is Ruler in the kingdom of mankind and that he gives it to whomever he wants, and he sets up over it even the lowliest of men.”  Lesson: (quite self explanatory really) Jehovah can do what he wants because he is the ultimate sovereign. verse 27  "Therefore, O king, may my counsel be acceptable to you. Turn away from your sins by doing what is right, and from your iniquity by showing mercy to the poor. It may be that your prosperity will be extended". Lesson: Listen to Jehovah and do right, otherwise Jehovah will discipline you. verse 37  “Now I, Neb·u·chad·nezʹzar, am praising and exalting and glorifying the King of the heavens, because all his works are truth and his ways are just, and because he is able to humiliate those who are walking in pride. Lesson: similar to above, and also proof that Jehovah carries out his discipline.  ---------------- The reasoning put forward as to why this particular chapter of Daniel (4) has greater meaning (paraphrased from WT October 2014) is that the book of Daniel has a central theme, that of God's Kingdom, and keeps pointing forward to the establishment of that Kingdom under the rulership of his Son, Jesus. For example what it says in Daniel 2:44: "“In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever.” I can see that Daniel Ch 2 is talking about Neb's. dream of the statue, representing subsequent rulerships, and that during the feet period God's Kingdom will come. In my opinion this is one valid and definite description of when the Kingdom will come. Then Chapters 7 and 8 are full of cryptic beasts, Chapter 9 prophesy about the coming of the Messiah including his cutting off, chapter 11 more cryptic descriptions, this time involving the king of the north and south, and the last chapter (12) the time of the end with Michael standing up. I need an encoder! I must admit, because of my more practical disposition, when we studied the Daniel book, I did not pay enough attention. My son was quite small and I had my hands full, and I can't even remember if we studied it again after that? For example what are these numbers about?: Daniel 12:11  “And from the time that the constant feature has been removed and the disgusting thing that causes desolation has been put in place, there will be 1,290 days. 12  “Happy is the one who keeps in expectation and who arrives at the 1,335 days!" (It's ok, no need to answer, I can look it up myself).   ,Sorry, I was being confusing. I didn't mean 607 was special. I meant what happened when counting 2520 years from that date, I meant that 1914 was a very significant year. (have to go, will carry on later)
    • My daughter would play her album Time After Time, over and over. When I found out that Eva Cassidy had already died when the album came out, it kind of made a few of the songs sound even more "haunting" than they already were.
    • Wow  she died of melanoma at the age of 33!!
    • I think you are wrong. The GB and or others at the top, make rules that are not from scripture. The Elders enforce those rules blindly. In Jesus time the religious leaders did the same thing. 'Putting heavy loads on the shoulders of others, which they would not even use a finger to help'. And actually the baptism questions / at baptism, a person agrees to become 'One of Jehovah's Witnesses', so it is much like a contract.  Also the Elders use the threat of disfellowshipping someone, which then means the person will be shunned by maybe 100 or more people / the whole congregation. And it could also mean the loss of business because JWs won't do business with D'fed ones.  Whereas 'interested ones' that go to meetings and do ministry, are not ruled over by the Elders. True that elders could stop an unbaptised one from doing ministry. but that is all they can do.  An Elder does not have the authority to tell an unbaptised person not to talk to a D'fed person.  I think that on some occasions the 'law of the land' shows more justice and mercy than the JW org.  And the rules of the GB /JW Org go beyond the things written in the scriptures. The GB themselves know this and have had to tell their lawyers and elders to lie in courts because of it.
