    Not sure if I’m writing in the right place as it’s been a while.
    but I’m responding to witness.who had a question put to him as to what he would do to correct or help the .org.
    he gave admirable thoughts...which I’m sure all of us would back up.
    The major thing that is escaping your notice Witness...is nothing you or any one else here could improve on anything really...
    For what is escaping your notice..,is never in the history of Jehovah having a people on this earth have they ever been able to do things to his satisfaction or right,
    Its the pattern constantly laid down in the history of the scriptures.
    the Israelites became worse than the nations around them...BUT he still considered them his people even tho severely disciplining them.
    the Jewish syste, also became corrupted and self righteous ...and thus received divine harsh punishment...
    Paul once again said wolves in sheep’s clothing would enter Into the cong and would treat the sheep harshly..and infact even whilst still alive he stated the man of lawlessness was already at work...
    Jehovah never ever wanted to send judges and prophets...he did that because they would not listen to or work out when their God was taking his spirit away from them...hence he sent men forward to actually communicate with them.
    he did not want them to have Kings as they would treat them harshly and tax them heavily...this life under them would be a burden...
    Our  God knows than no man or group of men or faithful and discreet slave....of whom are yet to be judged as such...can ever do What his people in the past has never been able to achieve .
    so it’s no good leaving....or thinking ANYONE can do better...because you are not learning the lesson that Jehovah is trying to teach you...
    Moses sinned....David sinned..Aaron sinned...Saul sinned..Peter denied Christ three times and they all fled and abandoned him...
    Jehovah’ is showing us at this time...NO ONE can do it right or will do it right...and we all need to humble ourselves and realise that it’s only when he returns in his appointed time....that most of us may realise that...
    we are no different that the Israelites...pigheaded stiff necked lot....or like the Pharisees...self righteous and pious..thinking we can do better"....well history has shown that won’t work nor was ever meant to work,,,,
    so we need to put up with and develop the attitude of Symon the priest and just get on with our business and have our peace with Jehovah...and that witness....is where endurance comes in...and patience...and a faith that Our God will rescue us in these confusing times.
    Because you to would mess up witness.....every single one of us here would....
