I watched the update and I have to wonder at how they are regular monthly videos. Why call it an update and not #2 Broadcast video? During the pandemic I can see how they were ”updating” the pandemic situation but what is being updated? It’s just an additional video. After watching the entire video, I think it was a poorly veiled attempt to solicit donations. I really don’t like picking on personalities but once again I cannot help myself in regards to Ken Cook. The artificiality of his style really puts plastic to shame. This is how they continue to push the vaccines, they do it through pushing the schools and you only find out later that you need to be vaccinated to attend the schools.
The Bethel tours will resume June 1, 2023 with smaller numbers of tourists. They cover the earthquake in Turkiye (don’t you like how I use the new and improved name for Turkey?) but they still have not mentioned the disaster in Ohio. This is the area where they solicit donations but they are very crafty about their wording.
The new GB members are Gage Fleegle and Jeffrey Winder. They both come from families that have been long time faithful servants. So, if they were ever to disagree with the other GB members, their family relationships could be used to keep them in line. I sound cynical, sorry and I admit they seem like very nice brothers. They did mention some great scriptures and so I am reminded of Jesus’ instructions to his followers regarding the Pharisees at Matthew 23:3: “Therefore, all the things they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds, for they say but they do not practice what they say”.
The 4 scriptures are:
Isaiah 26:12: “O Jehovah, you will grant us peace, Because everything we have done You have accomplished for us.”
Isaiah 26:3: “You will safeguard those who fully lean on you; You will give them continuous peace, Because it is in you that they trust”.
Mark 14:36: “And he said: “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you; remove this cup from me. Yet, not what I want, but what you want.”
Isaiah 41:10: “Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness.’”
