It’s a very weird world out there.
Any of you folks familiar with John Cedars? He does a good review.
Leaked Elder Videos - How elders treat 'sinners' and suicidal people - Cedars' vlog no. 15 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLBuulfOk40 Published on Feb 15, 2014 http://jwsurvey.org/cedars-blog/doubts-over-organizational-solidarity-as-disturbing-video-on-handling-suicide-is-leaked A contact of mine inside Watchtower has leaked two videos that were used during the 2012/2013 "Kingdom Ministry School" - a special training event for elders. The videos give a rare glimpse of how Watchtower wants its elders to go about their duties. Sinners are to be whisked through kangaroo courts where three elders act as judge, jury and executioner, and the accused/confessor cannot have access to all the guidelines by which he or she will be judged. Meanwhile, suicidal ones are NOT to be pointed towards professional counseling. Rather, they are to be given bible-based lectures, homework assignments, and urged to utter incantations.
