“Same vs. different” is a typical worksheet handed out to preschool and kindergarten children. In the pictures below, would you consider them the “same”, or “different”?

LOOKING TO AN ORGANIZATION FOR SALVATION IS... Idolatry
Our Relative Subjection to the Superior Authorities
As Christians, we face up to similar challenges today. We cannot take part in any modern version of idolatry—be it worshipful gestures toward an image or symbol or the imputing of salvation to a person or an organization.

ONE MUST COME TO THE WATCHTOWER ORGANIZATION FOR SALVATION
Directing Bible Students to Jehovah’s Organization
Bible students need to get acquainted with the organization of the “one flock” Jesus spoke about at John 10:16. They must appreciate that identifying themselves with Jehovah’s organization is essential to their salvation. (Rev. 7:9, 10, 15) Therefore, we should start directing our Bible students to the organization as soon as a Bible study is established.
Although these two quotes appear to be “different”, they are in fact, the same… hypocrisy.
Matt 12:37; John 9:41; Luke 12:1

Jehovah Does Not Tolerate Hypocritical Worship!
“As regards Jehovah, hiseyes are roving about through all the earth to show his strength in behalf of those whose heart is complete toward him.”—2 CHRONICLES 16:9.
Such as one who deliberately puts up a front, feigning obedience while practicing sin in secret

Another Scandal in Ukraine, against Jehovah's Witnesses.
The video that we show here is the search of a supposed policeman to a kingdom hall, where they miraculously found nazi propaganda.
The Self-proclaimed Republic of lugansk, even on territory of Ukraine, declares itself to be part of Russia and applies laws.
After the register, they accuse the witnesses of Neo-Nazis and spies of the Ukrainian government. The Russian Puppet Minister announces:
" as a result of search operations, it was found that the organization had not only acted in violation of the people's legislation, but was also an active agent of the LC security service. During the inspection of the premises belonging to the religious organization "Jehovah's witnesses" in the city of luhansk and the city of alchevsk, they found and confiscated materials from the campaign containing symbols Nazis and paraphernalia, as well as pamphlets calling for cooperation with the Special services of Ukraine ",
" during the records, the employees of the LC also found electronic means for the dissemination of materials that spread hatred and animosity, belittle the honour and dignity of a person on grounds of belonging to a religious group.
And then compare Chuck Schumer's fake tears vs. his voice years earlier.

Nicolas King frequently sings with the Watchtower Chorus and had a supporting role in the DVD released at the 2014 convention. (He's on the bottom row, second from the right.)
But he also is a jazz singer, traveling constantly performing at concerts, casinos, charity events, even a brief appearance on The Tonight Show. (Not much time left for service and meetings, now is there?) Besides that, he's hobnobbing with loads of worldly people, showing off on his Facebook page.
So why is Sergei from the convention video not allowed to play his violin, but Nicolas can pursue his worldly career and get rewarded for it by the organization?

I was reading this week's study article on remaining loyal to Jah. Found an interesting contradiction on shunning. They cite two experiences. In one a JW shuns her mom and her example is posted as a positive one of someone doing the right thing. The second example however of a JW being shunned by his non-JW family is labeled as an injustice. Here's first one:
So, the example above demonstrates the supposed loyal faith of a daughter that refused to talk to the woman that gave birth to her, raised her and surely sacrificed so much for her. This, the Watchtower claims, is an example of love and loyalty. Now let's see the second example cited in the same article in a latter paragraph:
In this example, the non-JW family members were cruel, because they "opposed his association" and "forbid him to visit them for years". Yet, isn't this exactly what the JW daughter from the first experience was doing to her mother? only in reverse?

I've seen a few JW's who are currently in good standing with photos at rap concerts and local bars with other non-witnesses and sometimes even a few other JW's.
I don't like confrontation nor do I have the time to track down which congregation they go to or the addresses on where to send photos.
Is there a way we could submit photos on here so that local elder bodies could follow up and disfellowship them?
Sort of a JW wikileaks to clean out hypocrites?
What do you think of the idea?
