Jesus Christ is King in heaven, and he will allow people in this world to do whatever they want until the end comes. Matthew 24:14
Until Armageddon, all those who are wicked will eventually be exposed as such, and the visible earthly organization of Almighty God Jehovah will also endure attacks from Satan, until the end of this world, despite Satans influence and dupes of this world.
Only those who are faithful to Almighty God Jehovah's visible earthly organization, his identifying named people, will be protected during Armageddon. These sheep are willing to suffer whatever comes their way, and remain loyal and obedient to death.

WTS has from Judge Rutherford launched an attack against all religions declaring them false by their fruits while boasting in their cleanses as God's organization upon earth.

Nobody picking on WTS they are just render the same judgments the WTS and its members have judged for over a hundred years. The WTS is not a victim, it is rather getting back the same measure of its own harsh unloving, unkind judgments of all other religion while kissing its own dirty mouth.

Matt.7:1 "Don't judge, so that you won't be judged.
7:2 For with whatever judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with whatever measure you measure, it will be measured to you. 7:3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but don't consider the beam that is in your own eye? 7:4 Or how will you tell your brother,'Let me remove the speck from your eye;' and behold, the beam is in your own eye? 7:5 You hypocrite! First remove the beam out of your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother's eye.

The same reason who chose the first Christians that had fornication amongst them not even mentioned among the nations.
(1 Corinthians 5:1). . .Actually fornication is reported among YOU, and such fornication as is not even among the nations. . .
If the first Christians could have such digusting behavior among them, then no doubt all Christians today are not immune to sin.

Have you mentioned the lawsuit to your spiritual brothers and sisters or are you too ashamed to?
We are not ashamed, we would rather not be argumentative and the fact
goes that you obviously havn't been doing any homework because now an
appeal has been issued. Just because one has let debauchery take toll doesn't mean that the rest of us has. If you had any "real" idea what we're about you wouldn't be so hesitant to be pointing fingers little one. We all put our pants on in the morning, i will have to soon be doing that for my newborn son, not all of us dwell on fingerpointing or playing window worriors on our computers. The majority of us are outstanding people if you really ever took notice rather than trying to be so negative

I knew about the appeal on the same day it was filed.

Exactly what is the Watchtower Society appealing?...

The amount; $21 million?

The court's ruling that ecclesiastical privilege didn't apply because Brother Kendrick's elders contacted the WTBTS's Legal Department and sahred what he had told them?

What are they appealing?

Is the Watchtower Society trying to appeal on the grounds that it shoudln't be held responsible for the actions of one its members who is not an ordained minister?

GOOD LUCK on that WTBTS:

*** 1970 Yearbook of Jehovah’s Witnesses ***

Page 25

Throughout the year there were on the average 1,256,784 ministers who could be counted on to spend time in the field ministry every month. Of course, these publishers of the Kingdom good news cannot all be in the work of spreading the message full time, but the dedicated, baptized disciples certainly are all ordained ministers.
~~~~~~~~~~

October 1, 2005 Watchtower
Page 25

Closing the morning session was the baptism talk—always a highlight at large gatherings of Jehovah’s Witnesses. What a joy to see newly dedicated ones follow in Jesus’ footsteps by submitting to water baptism!(Matthew 3:13-17) All who take this step have already accomplished much as doers of God’s word.

Moreover, when baptized they become ordained ministers of the good news, deriving much joy from knowing that they are sharing in sanctifying Jehovah’s name.
~~~~~~~~~~

January 15, 1987 Watchtower
Page 30

*** The “Divine Peace” District Convention—Just What We Needed!***

Another treat was the baptism talk,“Gaining Peace With God Through Dedication and Baptism.” The speaker showed that our baptism is at one and the same time a most serious and a most joyous occasion.

By means of it, we gain peace with God and become ordained ministers of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

this is because they have already began to rule, and have placed themselves as head of their own earth gov. GB = rulers.

The visible earthly organization of Jehovah God, his spiritual family of worshippers, is always ready and prepared for any exposure of ungodly hypocritical or unchristian conduct to become known.
2Peter 2:21

The judgement of those who receive death or everlasting life starts with Jehovah God's organiztion. If you are a Bible reader you should know that. 1Peter 4:17

Jehovah God has always seen to it that anything that is covered over or hidden will be exposed to separate those who are fake Christians. These ex witnesses are already dead to Jehovah God.
Matthew 8:22

This world will receive it's execution of Judement at the Great Tribulation culminating in Armageddon.
It has already been judged. That is why there is still time for individuals to know, love and serve Jehovah God, in imitation of Jesus our King in heaven.

All this does is show we are very close to the end of this wicked world. Matthew 24:14

Which is exactly why they lost the Conti case. If the WTB&TS were truly innocent, would jehovah had allowed the trial to come out as it has?

If the accusations are false, could not jehovah had influenced the outcome to vindicate his name?

The corruption in this case is coming from the top of the organization. The guilty verdict is just a start to the cleaning out of "jehovah's organization".
