    This a ridiculous assumption. There are several Glossaries available. This particular one appears not to follow the general principle that a Glossary is normally a list of terms and concepts. So what? There is nothing significant about this.

    So what? So what if he knew them. What purpose does this supposed shepherd need to know the vacation plans in the first place? My own parents do not request such things, and I'm pretty sure their concern for my well being is much more warranted. Of course Tom, I know you request this of your family, right?

    Is it overzealous and crass? Of course. You never know the emotional state of grieving persons. But overzealous and crass people are to be found everywhere and we all must deal with them Still, nobody seems overly concerned about it other than Jack and his co-irreligionist. My guess is that 8 out of 10 people would roll their eyes at this and dismiss it as well-meaning but the work of somewhat kooky people. 1 out 10 would actually appreciate it, for it is not as though the question is irrelevant. For the sake of the remaining 1 out of 10, deeply grieving who will take it wrong—perhaps atheists, which anyone has the right to be—one ought not do it—blanketing the cemetery. However, I have obtained a rare copy of the Ryan Bible Translation that addresses some of Jack’s concerns. ”Jesus said: “Roll away that stone.” Mary was offended that he should have the nerve to prey on her when she was emotionally vulnerable... With that, they rolled it away. Jesus peered inside, shrugged, and said to Mary: “Sorry about your loss.” It is all very well for you to renounce God, Jack, That doesn’t mean that the whole wide world must do it also. It is as though he would chastise Ponce de Leon for searching for the fountain of youth. The idiot. Why didn’t he search for the fountain of death instead?

    All one need to do blow this silly thing out of the water is to read the relevant portion of the JW downloadable child abuse policy. 11. If it is determined that one guilty of child sexual abuse is repentant and will remain in the congregation, restrictions are imposed on the individual’s congregation activities. The individual will be specifically admonished by the elders not to be alone in the company of children, not to cultivate friendships with children, or display any affection for children. In addition, elders will inform parents of minors within the congregation of the need to monitor their children’s interaction with the individ- ual. {Bolded mine]
      Hello guest!
    In the special case of child sexual abuse, these are the steps that go above and beyond handling other forms of wrongdoing. Why doesn’t Alexandra James refer to this? Why doesn’t John know it? No one has been more prolific at leveling charges as he, and he swallows every word of her accusations. Why does Srecko give it a Gold Star Thank You? All he and John have to do is to read the JW published policy to see that she is wrong. One would think the organization’s published child abuse policy would be the very first thing consulted. Instead, they never read it at all, or else they do and immediately seek to bury it. Will Mr. Rook give himself a downvote for overlooking this most obvious proof that the complaint he slobbers all over is bogus? It is clear that Ms James spends too much time pouring over confidential material that she has pilfered and insufficient time reading what is right under her nose.

    Would a Hebrew have understood the prohibition on pork as meaning he had to avoid "major" pig fractions (ham, bacon, ribs) but "minor" pig fractions like pickled feet and fried pork rinds were ok?

    You know what I think is the most enjoyable part of this question and responses? It is that, yes it is silly and comical because of the ridiculousness of the question, it points out the exact same when applied to blood fractions within jws. I know that is the obvious, but you then have those who will make the disgust look on their face (like they smelled something bad) and explain how child like a comment like this is, not realizing that they are promoting exactly the same position. Not only promoting it, but living out such nonsense. Do not tell the emperor he has no clothes!!!!

    All their immediate needs are met; everything and every form of service is provided for their benefit and is at their fingertips. Their living circumstances may be even more comfortable than we may assume. They have the luxury of dressing and eating well, traveling and seeing the world, and personally escorted wherever needed. But, they lack one thing. “Wisdom from above”. Dan.12:3,9,10; Rev.11:3; 1:1; Isa.5:13; 65:13; Luke16:24,25,26; Matt.25:8,9

    “Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by GOOD CONDUCT THAT HIS … ~~~~~WORKS~~~~~ …ARE DONE IN THE MEEKNESS OF WISDOM.” James 3:13 “The Governing Body is neither inspired nor infallible. Therefore, it can err in doctrinal matters or in organizational direction.“ WT 17/2 pp. 23-28 (Matt 7:15-20)
      Hello guest!
    “But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, DO NOT BOAST AND LIE AGAINST THE TRUTH.” James 3:14 Gerrit Losch, governing body member, speaks on JW Broadcast, March 2018: “So whom do you trust? You fully trust in Jehovah, Jesus, and the “faithful slave”. “This is not to say that the slave is perfect and never makes mistakes, but Jehovah and Jesus trust the imperfect slave who cares for things to the best of his ability AND WITH THE BEST OF MOTIVES. Shouldn’t we then trust the imperfect slave as well?” “To appreciate the extent of Jehovah’s and Jesus’ trust in the faithful slave reflect on what he has promised its members. He has promised them immortality and incorruption. Soon, JUST BEFORE ARMAGEDDON the remaining members of the slave will be taken to heaven.” ** “Since Jehovah God and Jesus Christ COMPLETELY trust the faithful and discreet slave, should we not do the same?” “This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.“ James 3:15,16 “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be… ~~~~~ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS”~~~~~ 2 Cor 11:13-15 King Solomon asked for one thing from God when becoming King. And Solomon said to God: “You have shown great and faithful love to my father David, and you have made me king in his place. 9 Lord God, let your promise to my father David now come true. For you have made me king over a people as numerous as the dust of the earth. 10 Now grant me wisdom and knowledge so that I may lead these people, for who can judge this great people of yours?” God said to Solomon, “Since this was in your heart, and you have NOT requested riches, wealth, or glory, or for the life of those who hate you, and you have NOT even requested long life, but you have requested for yourself wisdom and knowledge that you may judge my people over whom I have made you king, wisdom and knowledge are given to you. I will also give you riches, wealth, and glory, unlike what was given to the kings who were before you, or will be given to those after you.” 2 Chron 1:8-12 The granting of wisdom from God preceded Solomon acquiring great riches. JWs, remind yourself of what “works” are happening in the organization. An extensive history of false prophesy and replaced doctrine (“Beliefs Clarified”), Deut 18:19-22; Jer 23:16; 2 Pet 2:1-3
      Hello guest!
    Lawsuits over pedophilia are numerous. Jer 6:13,14; Ezek 34:2-4; Acts 20:29; Prov 17:15
      Hello guest!
    JWs are recently banned in Russia and all material assets have been confiscated. Deut 12:28; 2 Chron 16:7-9; 2 Chron 7:13,14; Isa 48:18; Heb 3:7-13
      Hello guest!
    Disfellowshipping anointed and all for turning to Christ and rejecting the “mark of the Beast”/organization, its lies and idolatry. Mark 8:31; John 15:20; Matt 5:10,11; John 16:2; Rev 13:15-17; Eph 5:11
      Hello guest!
    As well as the “trampling” of the Temple anointed priesthood of God by the “man of lawlessness”/elder body. Matt 24:15; Luke 21:24; Dan 11:31,32,36; Rev 11:2
      Hello guest!
    None of this would exist if wisdom and knowledge from God was present in the hearts of its leaders. Isa 29:11; Matt 25:4,11,12; James 1:5; Matt 7:7,8; 1 John 2:27; Heb 8:10 Unsettling turmoil reigns within and outside of its boundaries; and Gerrit Losch is making a desperate, hypocritical attempt at covering the governing body’s earlier admittance of lacking ‘inspiration’ from God’s spirit.
      Hello guest!
    “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.” James 3:17 Who really, has provided the full spectrum of the governing body’s earthly needs? It isn’t the Father, or Christ. Satan never promised heavenly wisdom to those who bow down to him, but only the “kingdoms of the world”; which the governing body has been given, with power and authority over God’s Chosen ones, and YOU, JWs! Matt 4:8,9; Luke 4:5-7; Matt 24:48-51; Rev 13:1,7,8,11,14-17; 2 Thess 2:9-12
      Hello guest!
    Since they have already forfeited their inheritance for all that Satan’s realm provides them, the wisdom from God will never be obtained. Luke 4:8; James 4:7; 13:2; 16:13,14; Heb 12:14-17; Rev 8:10,11; Amos 8:11; Rev 18:8
      Hello guest!
    ARMAGEDDON IS HERE – the spiritual battle of truth against lies fought in the valley of “decision”. Joel 3:14 Notice too, the governing body who is so sure of their heavenly destination, is still on the earth. Instead of ascending into heaven, this composite Harlot will suffer a shocking blow when the organization brings “her” down. Rev 17:12-18
      Hello guest!
    (“ARMAGEDDON” 4womaninthewilderness) From Pearl Doxsey’s, “Eighth King / Punishment of the Great Harlot”: “Many that leave the Org. today, do not do so out of a love of truth. Most reasons are selfish ones. But we should take note that Rev.18:4 tells us to get out of the covenant of death ("Babylon the Great") and her present harlot daughter, IF WE DO NOT WANT TO SHARE IN HER SINS AND RECEIVE PART OF HER PLAGUES. Getting out of her would no longer be possible, if she is already gone. It should also be noted, that God is telling His own people to get out ("my people" Rev.18:4). He is addressing His own priests (1Pet.2:10,9; Eze.37:23,27; 2Cor.6:16; Rev.21:3) This is a conundrum for the WT. They teach that "Babylon the Great" is "Christendom". Yet they also teach that there are no anointed in "Christendom". So how is it that the anointed would be commanded to come out of "Christendom"? No...God's chosen priests are being commanded to come out of what was God's City, which has now turned their back on God, under the wicked steward's leadership.” **Side note: The rest of the anointed are now, not considered part of the “faithful and discreet slave” as a result of “new light”. Their “heavenly reward” apparently is not a done deal, as is the "slave's". “Do the other sheep need to know the names of all anointed ones still on earth today? No. Why not? Because it is not possible for anyone to know for sure that these ones will get their reward.” Wt 16/1 pp. 20-26 Since this sifting has occurred and only 8 men are considered the “slave”, prophesy of the “wicked slave” has been fulfilled. This quote from the Wt. alone and Losch’s cocksure words above, shows the demeaning, psychological beating down of its “fellow slaves”. Matt 24:48-51 (Matt 25:14-30) “Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master has put in charge of his household, to give them food at the proper time?” ….rejected and failed doctrine and publications is not “food at the proper time”, or “meat in due season”. John 6:27; Matt 7:19,20 “Blessed is that servant whom the master finds doing his job when he comes. 47 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But if that wicked servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delayed,’ …how many failed Armageddon dates and “this generation” teachings are there? “and starts to beat his fellow servants, and eats and drinks with drunkards,”….who parrots the words of the GB but the elder body given power over the "holy ones" and drunk on the Harlot’s wine? Whatever decree the GB orders, the elder body carries out, against Christ’s “kings of the earth”. Rev 17:1-6; 13:1,5-7,11,12-17 50 that servant’s master will come on a day he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know. 51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” I implore you, JWs, wake up!
