Saw an IG story from a former friend of mine: “Jehovah’s blessing on your marital arrangement!” How culty does that sound?! Cringe x 100 Yeah, they can't just say "marriage" because that'd make them sound, erm, normal. I think it is to subtly highlight (manipulate) that the marriage is an "arrangement" or contract by the JW's and "Jehovah" - rather than a "marriage" between two people. "Marriage" makes it sound like it is their own personal and private bond that doesn't necessarily involve the JWs or "Jehovah".
Today's 'lesson' was another classic example of WT giving 2 contrary instructions for JWs to follow. On one hand they are to keep focused on the future and God's promises. On the other hand they mustn't get too caught up because "expectation postponed can make the heart sick", then go on to show OLD, DEAD, and DYING JWs who have been waiting for the end to come forever. So yeah, focus on the paradise fairy-tale, run with endurance, but don't keep focused on the past to avoid "expectation making the heart sick"? That's literally telling them to develop selective memories of the past. It's like a conman telling a 20 year old that he will give them $100,000,000 soon if they just keep working hard for him. They put everything else on hold and work free for free until they are 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50. When their youth is now gone and they are obviously now frustrated and silently questioning the reward he tells them to keep focusing on the work going forward, completely forgetting their youth and missed opportunities.
Your soul going to heaven is pagan but the GB will benefit from that pagan teaching. Information coming from Jehovah and He sends new light. Somebody got it wrong Have no business dealing with false religion; but buy and sell properties with false religion Lying is bad; but lie to protect the organization for Jehovah. The Almighty needs help Career is sinful vs "Whoever does not care for his own relatives, especially his own family members, has turned against the faith and is worse than someone who does not believe in God."
