"How Pioneering Enhances Spirituality"

"Avoid Time-Consuming Distractions"

I can't wait to hear these encouraging talks on how to spend more time distributing literature to the unwary and uneducated for the publishing company.

omg!

safeguard your spirituality!

1...... plug your ears!
don't read anything on the internet!
refuse to examine the history of the watchtower org...... if anyone you are witnessing to knows how to refute jw doctrine, run for it and cross them off your list.

2......how pioneering enhances!
forget your husband, kids, house and education, and dying mother and father, and recruit for us till you wear out and have nothing left and no friends or family....... we might let you have a title.

later, when you figure out jesus didn't return in 1874, errr i mean 1914 errr and appoint us to rule, we will promptly kick you out and slander you, and if you start up an internet site like "quotes", we might even sue your pants off.

3.... what characterizes a spiritual person.
well, first off, a spiritual person is obedient to jw leadership no matter what.
if they say jump, you say; "how high".
if they tell you jesus is not your mediator, but instead they are, you say: amen.
if the holy spirit tells you to eat the emblems and drink the wine, you flat out refuse.

now for the song....
we are jehovahs witnesses, we speak out in fearlessness, our god is the gov body...

It must be hard for those guys to over and over again give talks like that in a "nice" way...

Let's be honest - about 90% of the audience they're speaking to are token publishers, likely complaining more in a day than they actually preach in a whole month. This is why as an active JW I never got to speak at an assembly. I couldn't have helped myself.

Here would be my talk:

Turn with me brothers and sisters to....... Awww... No. Put the bibles down. I have this whole outline here that I REALLY intended to follow because I told myself I wasn't going to get sidetracked, but I can't stand up here and pretend to feel bad for those of you who are likely tired of hearing, "Why don't you do more?" repeated ad nauseum. You pioneers, you publishers who consistently put forth the effort to actually meet or exceed the monthly average, even those of you who are below average but who actually try to be, all of you take a break - take a walk, stretch your legs, go for coffee and a doughnut and come back in 15.

<Out of an audience of about 800, two dozen people leave.>

Ah ha. That's what I figured. Ok, folks, let me make it simple for you. We get it. We're not stupid. We read what you say on those websites on the Internet. We know how you complain, almost constantly, about how "burdened" you are, and how sick and tired you are of hearing, "Why don't you do more?"

GET OVER IT!

<Collective gasp of the audience, taken aback by the fact that brother giving a part on a circuit assembly isn't nicely enabling their laziness but rather talking honestly to them about how he feels.>

You're weak. Yup, I said it. I didn't want to, I didn't plan to, but I just couldn't help myself. You are WEAK.

I hate to use a cliched, "When I was your age we walked forty miles, uphill both ways, in twenty-five feet of snow, with holes the brown paper bags we wore for shoes to school," type story, but you people really have it easy. No-

<I say, pointing at the overweight guy in the sloppy green suit in the last row standing up to leave>

...you just wait one minute, pal. You sit your fat behind down and wait until I'm finished. When I'm done you can leave and never come back again and I won't care one bit, but for once you're going to give your full attention, rather than just sleepwalking through your life and your dedication. Your a good example, so we'll use you. We're gonna call you Brother Tubby. Everyone, turn around and take a good look at Brother Tubby. I'll bet that most of you are just like Brother Tubby. You maybe find your way out in service about once, a month - usually on Sunday after the meeting for an hour, or two at best. You probably "make calls" for about a half hour, spend forty-five minutes driving and another forty-five sititng at McDonalds. Juding by the waistlines, its a safe bet that the majority of you spend more time in a day eating than you spend in a month going door-to-door, just like Brother Tubby back there. Isn't that right Brother Tubby? Don't wait for the microphone, just yell out your answer.

Ah, sure you do. Everybody does. We all have glandular problems. In all of your cases its the LAZINESS gland.You people made a dedication. Maybe you made it for the wrong reasons, maybe you weren't as informed as you should have been, maybe you just went along with it because its what your wife or husband or parents or children or Dear Aunt Flo wanted. Still, you made a dedication. I hate to channel Reverend Manning here, but you all are an impossible group of people. You have it easier than any people in history ever had it. and I mean that both as just plain people living in the USA and as Jehovah's Witnesses. Do you realize that at one time "going out in service," meant standing in front of churches full of hostile people with placards denouncing those churches? Do you understand that Witnesses of old were attacked like Martin Luther King Jr's marchers? Good golly, they had dogs turned on them! They were chased with clubs, shot at, tarred and feathered and run out of town! Witness youths were beaten up for not saluting the flag in school, for actually getting out and loudly and proudly promoting their faith. Now look at all of you! Fat, lazy, wicked and twisted! It's not enough that you ignore most of what we say from the platform. We know it, we expect it, and we are okay with it. Its not enough that you don't really give all that much attention to what we put in print. We know it, we expect it, and we are okay with it. But to whine and complain about how many talks are given where guys like me sugarcoat that we think you aren't giving your best effort in the ministry, are you kidding me? You brothers out there - like Brother Tubby - how many of you watched the Steelers this past month? Hm? Show of hands?

<Most of the male audience raises their hands.>

Mmmm Hmmm. Practically all of you. Wasted a lot of time the past month, didn't ya? What's an NFL game last, 3 and a half to four hours? And you all did that four times - watched 'em lose to Cleveland, Baltimore, Cincinnati and Oakland. OAKLAND! But I digress. You spent, let's be conservative, ten hours at least, twelve to fourteen at most watching four very bad football games. Add in an additional two or three hours watching highlight shows and complaining about the game to your friends and arguing as though you could have done better if you were the coach.

And you want to whine because you don't like hearing us tell you, very nicely, that we think you can do better than two lousy hours per month in the ministry? Well ladies and gentlemen, and I use those terms VERY loosely, this is one talk you're going to remember for a long time, because you are just downright pathetic as ministers, and its a shame that we've all coddled you from up here for so long instead of giving you the kick in the oversized bottoms you all so greatly deserve. What's really funny is that you all think you're getting away with something whining on the Internet with your anonymous screen names. Two hours of token service in a month relative to a good two or more hours a day complaining about it! Think about this: imagine that you only spent thirty minutes a day complaining about all your "burdens" as Witnesses. Now we no it's more like three hours, but we'll pretend its only thirty minutes. Multiply that by thirty days and that's nine-hundred minutes. Divide that by sixty and you have fifteen hours. Imagine if all of you spent fifteen hours in service a month, rather than the fifteen or more you spend complaining about the two hours you actually go out, you would be over the national average by a fair amount! At the very least, you'd have a valid complaint when you went to your little web-forums and complained! But you impossible people can't be bothered to give any more than token service, and you want to complain that we keep telling you, very nicely, that we expect more! An effort would be nice! The national average would be great, but we'd take an hour less with a decent effort! Then all this complaining wouldn't be so irritating, but two hours? Two lousy hours, most of it spent "making calls?" What is that? Huh? What's "making calls?" You mean going back to that door where you left an old magazine because you weren't really pressing the doorbell with enough force to actually make the bell ring? Is that what you mean? Some of those people who walked out a few minutes ago get up at four in the morning in the dead of winter to go downtown and pass out magazines to anyone on the street for two hours BEFORE they go out in car groups! And they're not even pioneers! And yet you impossible people complain because you think you've been "burdened." Brother Tubby back there, I happen to know, leaves magazines at empty houses! Isn't that right Brother Tubby?

"You promised that would be our secret!"

I lied. Deal with it. It's just like you lied when you made your dedication, so I guess you're even. You should see it folks, a pile of magazines two feet high on the porch of this house that got forclosed on in 2006! That's "making calls." That's the two hours you fill out on the timeslip - a half hour driving, forty-five minute McDonalds coffee break and forty-five minutes of litering up forclosed properties. Mmmm Hmmm, don't ya'll feel proud?

You're weak. You aren't burdened. You aren't poor unfortunate souls, you aren't tired, poor, huddled masses! You're huddled masses of lazy, but you aren't poor. You go in peace and very VERYwell fed, home to complain around the dinner table about how big bad Brother Chandler told it like it is, kept it real and gave you something to actually complain about for more hours than you actually spend in the ministry! You go on ahead! You don't like it? There's the door!

<Points to the three sets of double doors at the rear of the auditorium.>

You're get out of jail free card. Don't pass go, don't collect two-hundred dollars, walk, don't take the bus because so many of you could stand to lose a few pounds, but just take your weak behinds out the door, because your complaining about doing nothing is keeping me up nights. Those of you that plan to take what you've heard to heart and turn over a new leaf-

<About 100 people remain, joined by the original group that left, now back and seriously confused>

...let's stand and sing Song Number 5.

have fun with the sarcasm; keep mocking God and his purpose and will to have His work done. Did not his son Jesus Christ was commissioned to carry out this work in fulfillment of the scriptures, and said his true followers will be be busy in the same work on a grander scale? publishers do what their schedule allows them to do. read your Bible more if you can't comprehend and see what religion today is represented by God's organization, although he may use imperfect mankind to get the work accomplished, not for monetary gain or self-glory, but help honest and righteousely disposed ones to see where we are in the stream of time. at that time Satan will have his crew to let them out of the abyss along with him, because the sarcasm and blindness comes from him, and Jesus said these ones resemble their Father Satan, offspring of vipers. Enough, now let me go out to help someone get on the road to life!

"Enough, now let me go out to help someone get on the road to life!"

If you are preaching the Watchtower Society's version of the Good News you are definitely not helping anyone get on the road to life.

I wonder why the faux Jo spend so much imporatant time here then?
Why do they not study and prepare and encouraqge and help people and go out in service and not do any of that as a token gesture but as a part of their lives?
Instead, what we have here are pretenders that would much rather come here and hang out with apostates!
Now keep in mind that I bet many people are writing in the Bethel to tell the GB that they have followers that are giving the WTS a black eye on a daily basis by spouting their foul mouths here instead of portraying themselves as Chrisitan Witnesses of Jehovah.

I am hoping they address this very type of thing at the convention this year!
