Another fishy story!
God’s Word tells us precisely when Jesus died, but it gives little direct indication as to when he was born. This brings to mind King Solomon’s words: “A name is better than good oil, and the day of death than the day of one’s being born.” (Ecclesiastes 7:1) It is not surprising, then, that the Bible provides many details about Jesus’ ministry and death but few details about the time of his birth.
i remember a jw sister who started partaking and was immeadatly excluded from gatherings and was hounded by the elders until she finally disassociated herself.this was 10 years ago-but i guess the organizational procedual directive has changed since then as we see their numbers rising.maybe they will unlock the vault and bring back the old great company teaching.one thing is certain-many of us former jws are strenghthened not to return as we watch the wts continually flounder with their doctrine.

He did not handle the microphones or work the literature etc. He came, he listened, sometimes commented and after the meeting was a warm and loving associate. He had been counseled privately about his beard. He did not shave it off. Well, the big guns came out. At the next local needs talk the subject was brothers who insist on keeping their beards are doing wrong. There was only one brother in the hall who had a beard! He was publicly crucified for having a beard! The result?..many in that hall had confirmed in their minds what they already suspected; the elder body was a devil in the making. I have other "fishy" stories if you care to hear them.
