    Trusting "the Faithful and Discreet slave"

    Anyone who has to convince you of their authority has no authority.

    We all need to have a copy of it!

    For right now, we'd like to have some details. Is there any difference in the baptism questions?

    Can anyone come up with some new titles for each chapter, ones that would be a little more explanitory as to the actual contents?

    I noticed that too. I think it is there to emphasize that the book is meant only for baptized JWs and not the general population. A person who is studying cannot have a copy.

    Here is the chapter list of the older Organized to Accomplish Our Ministry:

    1 Organized to Accomplish Our Ministry ?????????. 5
    2 Benefiting From Theocratic Subjection ?????????12
    3 Recognizing Christ's Role in God's Arrangement ????17
    4 How the Congregation Is Organized and Governed ???.21
    5 Overseers to Shepherd the Flock ?????.. . . . . . . ??28
    6 Ministerial Servants Render Valuable Service ??? . . . . 55
    7 Arrangements for Regularly Assembling Together ???. .60
    8 Ministers of the Good News ???? . . . . . . . . . ????.81
    9 Ways to Expand Your Ministry ????? . . . . . . . . ?..110
    10 How the Ministry Is Supported ????.. . . . . ?.. . . . 119
    11 Holding to Jehovah's Righteous Standards ????.. . . 127
    12 When Difficulties Arise . . . . . . . . . . . . . ???.?138
    13 A Worldwide Association of Brothers ?????.. . . ?.. 153
    14 Enduring With Life in View ????. . . . . ?. . . . ??.161
    Appendix: Questions for Those Desiring to Be Baptized . . . 171
    Subject Index - ??.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ???? ??..219

    It imeddiately leaps out the fact that there's more emphasis on the WT Leadership. The new chapters clearly reveal the trend:

    3. Trusting "the Faithful and Discreet slave"

    17. stay close to Jehovah's organization

    Interestingly, the last chapter changes the focus completely, from "Enduring With Life in View" in the old om book to 'Closeness with the Organization' in the new. The light is no doubt shining brighter and brighter...

    Compare the first few chapters of the two books.

    Old book:

    1 Organized to Accomplish Our Ministry

    2 Benefiting From Theocratic Subjection

    3 Recognizing Christ's Role in God's Arrangement

    4 How the Congregation Is Organized and Governed

    New book:

    1 Organized to do Jehovah's Will

    2 Recognizing Christ's role in Gods arrangement

    3 Trusting "the Faithful and Discreet Slave"

    4 How the congregation is organized and governed

    They unwittingly put off their mask with a true theological Freudian slip. The first three chapters perfectly correlate with the Three Persons of the Christian Trinity. The FDS takes the place that would naturally belong to the Holy Spirit... Are they bordering on blasphemy or what?

    That's different than the one I've got:

    1. Organanized to do Ted Jaracz' Will

    2. Recognizing Christ's non-existant role in Our Gods arrangement

    3. Trusting "the Faithful and Discreet slave"---Not A Smart Move

    4. How the congregation is beat into submission organized and governed

    5. Overseers to badger and blame shepherd the flock for all the problems in the Borg

    6. Ministerial servants kiss ass render valuable service

    7. Meetings that bore you to tears incite to love and fake hours fine works

    8. ministers of the good news that God's going to kill 6 billion people.

    9. Desperate methods of selling magazines preaching the good news

    10. Embarassing ways to fake even more hours on your Service Report expand your ministry

    11. arrangements for places of worship where we can keep a close eye on you.

    12. supporting kingdom activity locally and worldwide by giving us your soul and your money, but not necessarily in that order.

    13. "do all things for Our God's glory"

    14. maintaining the peace and cleanliness of the congregation: disfellowship anyone who reports a pedophile to the police.

    15. benefiting from theocratic subjection by way of a lobotomy

    16. a united brotherhood: You Wish

    17. stay close to Jehovah's organization or We'll Kick Your Ass

    Hmmmmmm Neo - made me think - do you think there's also subliminal messages in the literature?

    I almost fell outa my seat, I first read Reconsidering instead of Recognizing.

    Me too! I wasn't aware they had a place for Christ - I wonder what role they have in mind for him?

    As they sacrifice souls to Satan, the god of the Watch Tower.

    As soon as I read this, it made me think of the "belongs to" page in the cover of every children's book:

    alt

    You can almost picture somebody scrawling under it "So Hands Off!"

    It's all about "Look how important you are, you were issued a special book that only people like you can have." Give 'em a little taste of power and they'll always come back for more.
