Many groups are preparing a party afterwards.
Many Witnesses fear this change and do not understand it, especially the elderly. I think it is the nostalgia factor.
Many of the elderly attend a morning book study because they fear driving at night. There is so much sadness. For decades the Watchtower taught that this meeting was necessary in order to save their lives. All of a sudden, it is not necessary at all.
I really love some of Jehovah's Witnesses. Those who truly believe all the drivel and who feel that they are really serving God.
I deeply loathe the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society who deceives people with its constant changing rules and obligations.
Those who say that they are just imperfect men and that Jehovah used imperfect men in the past are just not getting it. Jehovah is not using the Governing Body and there is no evidence to prove the contrary. Just because they say that Jehovah is using them, does not make it so.
In fact, the evidence points to the fact that he is not using them for anything at all and the Bible condemns their actions!
