    The talks were revised in 1995:

    Maybe #100 is on this topic

    Matthew 24:34
    34 Truly I say to YOU that this generation will by no means pass away until all these things occur.

    UGH!! Number 6 "The Flood of Noah's Day blah,blah, blah" was one of my father's "ace in the hole" talks. You know, the talk that you got to hear every other out of town talk he gave; OR "the speaker didn't show up and I have to give the talk" talk. The whole family got SOOO sick of hearing it. ICK!!! ICK!!! ICK!!!

    Hmmm . . . I see some common themes here . . .

    Scare tactics ("stay with WT or you DIE!!"):
    · Will You Be a Survivor of the Last Days?
    · Are You Marked for Survival?
    · Can You Live Forever? Will You?
    · Decide Now For Divine Rulership
    · Act Wisely As The End Draws Near
    · Maintain Your Confidence Firm to the End
    · Meeting the Test of Christian Loyalty
    · A Cleansed Earth Will You Live to See It?
    · Will You Escape This World’s Destiny?

    Organizational thinking ("We can't trust the masses to think for themselves. We've got to make sure they are towing the line.")
    · No Part of The World In Imitation Of Christ
    · A Godly View Of Sex and Marriage (Yep, no area of life is free from WT directions)
    · A Clean People Honours Jehovah
    · How Do You Fit into the Kingdom Arrangement
    · Are You Content With Jehovah’s Previsions?
    · Resisting the Spirit of the World
    · Getting Marriage Off to a Good Start
    · What Is Behind the Spirit of Rebellion?
    · Does Your Thinking Agree With Gods?
    · How Should You Serve God?
    · Lovers of Pleasures or Lovers of God?
    · Jehovah’s Eyes are on Us
    · Love for Jehovah or the World Which?

    And of course, the usual ranting about religion, and exhortations to recruit new members.

    Also, notice how many talks are rhetorical questions. Most JWs know exactly what the talk will be about. It's just brainwashing - like answering questions from paragraphs in the WT.

    But my favorite:
    · Love Identifies the True Christian Congregation

    And we all know how loving the WT is!

    Radar - interesting topic - recognize most of those titles as I "served" as talk coordinator for several years. My talks were mostly the prophecy bible chronology type - ones that are probably undergoing constant revisions and updates now!

    Guess I have been away too long to venture a guess. Perhaps it is one of the "special talks" that was added to the list?

    Gem - I think the original title of that talk was, "Conditional love identifies the true christian congregation." ;)

    Mak,

    Didn't you just hate it when a speaker cancelled last minute or better yet, didn't show up and you had to cover?!

    Now what is one of the most controversial subjects, that the average JW would want to avoid on the Ministry, one that raises peoples temperatures like no other?

    What do the general public identify JWs with?

    Yes, you got it Blood!

    Would it not seem reasonable then, that such an issue as blood would be on the Public Talk list?
    Of all the sacrifices that many JWs have made over this issue, and the public interest in this subject of why JWs refuse transfusions.
    Yet the Watchtower is very silent when it comes to public talks on it.

    The only occasion a Public talk will be heard on the subject, is when the public talk co-ordinator can unofficially twist one of the local hospital liaison members arms and get him to do the talk.

    To my knowledge, the religious stand on blood and the medical issues that arise because of it are not given as a Public talk.
    There may be the occasional reference to it in part of a public Talk, but no outline deals primarily with this issue.

    This may of changed since I left. Maybe you can give me an update.

    So that leaves the question why?
    Any comments?

    I've only seen one talk on blood, and it was exactly as you described. There was a member of the liason committee there who gave the talk, and I believe the circuit overseer was present as well. That was quite some time ago though...at least 6 years ago.

    Sorry guys, but you need to update your list...

    This list is about 5 years old. There is a talk 100, and there is a talk about blood.

    #100 - True Love for God and Neighbor
    #135 - The Sanctity of Life and Blood.

    I'll give you the names for #125 through #152 when I can find them.

    Oh, the memories. I gave #36: Is this life all there is?
    and #122: Global peace, from what source.

    I still have the outlines and my notes. I hope I didn't convert anyone, but there's not much chance of that. No members of the "public" ever showed up at our "public" talks.
