Shepherding God's flock is a weighty responsibility. That is why James warned men that not many of them should be teachers since they will receive a heavier judgment. And the teachers of the teachers will receive the heaviest judgment; this, in accord with the principle Jesus stated in the 12th chapter of Luke when discussing the proportionate lashings meted out to the erring slaves: "Indeed, everyone to whom much was given, much will be demanded of him, and the one who was put in charge of much will have more than usual demanded of him."Shepherd the flock of God under your care.—1 Pet. 5:2.
Jehovah’s people are united in worship of the one true God. Jehovah has entrusted the elders with the weighty responsibility of keeping the congregation clean. If a Christian commits a serious sin, Jehovah expects the elders to determine whether that individual can remain in the congregation. Among other things, they need to find out whether the person is truly sorry for what he did. He may claim to be repentant, but does he truly hate what he did? Is he determined not to repeat the sin? If bad associations led up to the wrongdoing, is he willing to cut off those associations? The elders prayerfully consider the facts in the light of the Scriptures, taking into account the wrongdoer’s attitude toward what happened. Then they decide whether the wrongdoer may remain in the congregation. In some cases, he must be disfellowshipped.—1 Cor. 5:11-13. w22.02 5 ¶11-12
Back in 2005, I called for a judicial committee to be formed in New York to investigate the Governing Body's willing partnership with the United Nations; a partnership that required the Watchtower to use its resources to publish positive information about the UN and all of its many programs and initiatives. For 10 years the Watchtower dutifully complied with the terms laid out by the UN's Department of Public Information for associate-level NGOs. Millions of Jehovah's Witnesses, publishers, and pioneers, were the unwitting couriers of magazines peppered with snippets of information and some glowing in-depth articles about all the wonderful things the UN is doing. Of course, no inquiry was ever made into the Governing Body's apostasy. Instead, Bethel ordered my elders to convene a judicial committee, which eventually resulted in my being disfellowshipped.
The point is, that it is humanly impossible to fix what is wrong with the leadership of Jehovah's Witnesses. That's because of the presence of Satan and those under his influence, who, like the superfine apostles, have cleverly disguised themselves as anointed ministers of Jehovah.
Since their secret alliance with the UN was exposed back in 2001 the Watchtower has only added sin to sin, as the scripture says. Dispossessing thousands of JWs from their Kingdom Halls is a crime that will have to be dealt with. Likewise, with their recent advocacy of gene-altering injections, the GB has added bloodguilt to their rap sheet. At some point though it all ends. Jesus cannot be bought off, bamboozled, or gaslighted. His fiery eyes can see into every dark corner and hidden recess. There will be no place to hide when Christ comes to settle accounts.
"As for my people, their taskmasters are abusive, and women rule over them. My people, your leaders are causing you to wander, and they confuse the direction of your paths. Jehovah is taking his position to accuse; He is standing up to pass sentence on peoples. Jehovah will enter into judgment with the elders and princes of his people. 'You have burned down the vineyard, and what you have stolen from the poor is in your houses. How dare you crush my people and grind the faces of the poor in the dirt? declares the Sovereign Lord, Jehovah of armies." - Isaiah 3:12-15
“I did not send the prophets, yet they ran. I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied.” — Jeremiah 23:21 Who are God’s people?
In the 20th chapter of Ezekiel Jehovah poses the question to his watchman: “Are you ready to judge them? Are you ready to judge them, son of man?” Ezekiel was qualified to judge them. He being a Hebrew and a son of a priest, Ezekiel would have been
Some of the finest men I have ever known are elders and circuit overseers among Jehovah’s Witnesses. Most of Jehovah’s Witnesses would no doubt readily agree that the majority of overseers are honest, hard-working, self-sacrificing Christian men. Be that as it may, the privilege of tending to...
