Why do the elders have to announce when a publisher decides to spend 70 hours a month in service?

Is not that equivalent to boast about the "many" hours you dedicate preaching about God over others who have not the same agenda?

Are the hours actually announced?

It is 60 hrs a month for an aux.pioneer isn't it?. The 70 hrs is just an average out per month for a regular pioneer's annual commitment to at least 840 in the 12 months. It is only a minimum actualy. Many do more. And many don't make the goal for a variety of reasons.

Hmm... Perhaps it would be more interesting to announce at the end of a month how many hours those making a commitment actually did get? That might even up the boasting stakes a bit.

I often wondered why military uniforms had so many patches, braids, medals, and other stuff on them.

Then I realized that men were decorated up like that so that people who "knew the code" could tell at a glance your entire history and experience level, and your motivation levels, and other factors ... like a ten page resume that could be evaluated in two seconds.

I see nothing wrong with announcing that someone is willing to Pioneer ... go out for "sustained combat".

It is hard work, and perhaps they will need encouragement or some physical assistance.

Give honor where it is due!

I would like to see something like the U.S. Congressional Medal of Honor or some other appropriate award for "I survived Bethel"....

Est-ce pas équivalent à vanter les heures « beaucoup » que vous consacrez la prédication de Dieu sur les autres qui n'ont pas le même ordre du jour?

 

Il n'est pas question de vanter mais simplement de savoir qui fait pionnier tout simplement.

1. why the need to count the number of hours, there is no biblical mandate to do so, however there is a mandate about boasting about your works.

2. How many of those hours are just standing next to a cart and having your default witness as...'go to jw.org'.

3. How hard can it be just standing there next to a cart?

I agree with you. And, when on ministry some make a habit of walking very slowly between houses and also stopping for a chat. That's here in Devon England. They also go driving around the countryside looking for 'lost' houses to call on. 

There does not seem to be the importance given in the physical ministry, compared to that given in the Bible. But at least they are out there and trying.... Shame a lot of it is false 'news' anyway. 

The one thing i see is that those doing the ministry are showing themselves as believing and not frightened to be seen doing what they think is God's work.

1. pourquoi le besoin de compter le nombre d'heures, il n'y a pas de mandat biblique de le faire, mais il y a un mandat au sujet de se vanter de vos œuvres.

2. Combien de ces heures sont debout juste à côté d'un panier et d'avoir votre témoin par défaut comme ... 'aller à jw.org.

3. Comment en dur peut-il être juste là à côté d'un panier?

Je suis d'accord avec toi. Et, quand le ministère certains prennent l'habitude de marcher très lentement entre les maisons et arrêtant également pour un chat. C'est ici dans le Devon en Angleterre. Ils vont également conduire autour de la campagne à la recherche de maisons « perdus » pour appeler le. 

Il ne semble pas être l'importance accordée dans le ministère physique, par rapport à celle donnée dans la Bible. Mais au moins ils sont là-bas et essayer .... Honte beaucoup de c'est faux « nouvelles » de toute façon. 

La seule chose que je vois est que ceux qui font le ministère se montrent comme croyant et pas peur de se faire voir ce qu'ils pensent est l'œuvre de Dieu. 

 il n'est pas question de se vanter.

C'est cette médisance a deux balles ?

You are obviously trying to share information which may be valuable.

How about I make a deal with you .... you write in English, and I will not reply in Klingon?

Otherwise, your efforts are completely wasted on anyone who does not speak French.

I spit and yell in Klingon.

..... both at the same time!

 there is no question of boasting.

Is this two-ballooning slander?

In Anglais JTR Jr. But what is  'two-ballooning' ?

      I had quit the JW Open Club, so as not to be a cause for dissension …. which if I am not careful I can take over a conversation … as TTH ALLUDED to that, and he was correct.
      Under the circumstances, I feel if I do not comment, it would solve at least 3 points of concern.
      I have been thinking about this for several days and decided it would be appropriate to “belong” if I only commented if asked a question, etc.,and not post cartoons.
      Basically, the same rules at the Kingdom Hall, except I will be courteous to anyone that is courteous to me, except that for d’fd people, not to discuss any theocratic issue or “what’s going on”, etc., realizing it is a double edged sword that should cut both ways.
      With all that in mind, I again request approval to join the closed club mainly as an observer.
      The open club has evolved into a bat cave of crazy people.

      Hi, it seems we are the only two left talking about it as the rest have lost interest.  PITY, because they will soon see what is coming. I have always had a good imagination for understanding injustice. ..I watched the video about the injustice you put up.... very sad. We understand those things.....the other video is just a parody, of snippets of a very nasty person.... I do not know who she is but she was standing  next to the health minister.....
      I am not well, so I may not make it thru this system..... and I am happy to say maybe it is a  good thing.... I want to praise jehovah until I die ...but the opportunities are getting less.... and who wants to see people suffer?  If I were still around I would be severely stressed by it.  
      My father always said " know all, blow all" when people think they know it all.  And I have seen some pretty opinionated people on here. Mostly people who have had very little suffering and had authority in congregations.   
      I encourage you to stay strong dear sister and please devote more time to worship Jehovah in love. I also want to cut my time on internet ........ I spend time trying to find hidden  news about new developments in UN etc.  Soon all news about what is really  going on will not be available..... just mandates from governments and propaganda from the governments. People will be liquidated and we will not be able to get news about it. 
      Just stay strong. I am glad you spoke out about Australia.... I have a friend there who is too afraid to talk on internet.  They have already built  Covid "camps" in USA and Australia.... the  ĺorcing all "faith in god" out of everyone..  only worship of the state will be allowed. .... to compromise as many as he can.
      Strengthen yourself. No one can do it for you.
