Watchtower’s prospecting for top leadership

Today I added a new article to my blog examining Watchtower’s approach to filling top leadership positions within its ranks.

My article is titled "Watchtower’s prospecting for top leadership" and is available at: http://marvinshilmer.blogspot.com/2012/11/wat...

There seems to be a disconnect in your references.

What is the direct link to the reference appointing Sanderson to the GB?

Thanks.

The link you cite is to another blog article giving more information about the group Mark Sanderson was appointed to.

Other than announcing Sanderson’s appointment internally at Bethel, to my knowledge the Watchtower organization has not published this appointment except in an online video. I’d have to look up the video to reference it. Do you think it’s worth the bother?

Uh, given the fact that your references all lead back to articles you wrote, and none of them lead back to a specific announcement that Sanderson has/had been appointed to the GB, yes, I do.

I mean, it's the basis for your entire article, so...

No. Informing readers of Mark Sanderson’s ascension to the throne is the article itself. I was at the original announcement and I’m sharing the knowledge by publication on my blog. But this piece of common information is not the basis for my article.

The basis for my article is what was rewarded by Sanderson’s ascension to the throne.

You were allegedly at this "internal announcement" that took place at Bethel?

Why do I find this very hard to believe?

At any rate, these things can be confirmed, as you very well must know if you're actually privy to GB announcements.

So again, why not just post up some decent proof?

Why? Because I do things that Watchtower would not have me do?

Are you doing anything that Watchtower would not have you do?

I fail to see your point. If question that Sanderson was recently appointed to Governing Body status all you have to do is go over to mommy’s web site and you’ll find it. Oh, I mean jaydubyadotcom.

If you want a blog article to read and be presented as you want it to read and be presented then start a blog and knock yourself out. The current article shows what it is about. It’s NOT ABOUT WHETHER Sanderson was placed on the throne. It’s about what that act rewarded.

now don't be too hard on the guy, keep in mind his background

he has been taught that digging deep for info is not to be done- the wt will tell him what and when he needs to know something

so a jw is sometime lazy in that area sad to say

##########

Watchtower 1967 June 1 p.338 Move Ahead with Jehovah's Organization ***

Sudy:

We may think of study as hard work, as involving heavy research. But in Jehovah's organization it is not necessary to spend a lot of time and energy in research, for there are brothers in the organization who are assigned to do that very thing"

this is what shapes the mindset of jw

don't look up nothing TOO DEEP

Right. When you have something of substance to say I’m sure it’ll come…………….. eventually.

Do I need to go to mummy’s web page and find what you apparently have either not looked for or were unable to find?

You have been spending too much time away from "Jehovah's" organisation if you still don't know that Sanderson is a GB member.

It baffles the mind that JW's don't know who the men are that make policies affecting every aspect of their lives.

They get in the JW's bedroom but the JW has no clue who they are.

Sad.

excellent point my man

this clown------comes up on the forum ---"attempts" to dog someone all due to the fact that HE DIDN'T KNOW THERE IS A NEW GB!!!!!

yep like you said these are the same uninspired Ghost writers that tell Bro "A" how he can make love to his old lady- and he don't even KNOW THEIR NAME

lol

sanderson???..... i vote for richand and yknot and misrecorded...... they have immense tricky talking skills and don't seem to care one way or the other about truth

they could do a last minute partaking, and then be appointed, or be the first non-brothers of christ, to be appointed to direct christs brothers.

it would make a great watchtower study.

Jace,
Most JWs don't read www.jw.org regularly.
Until an announcement is made at the Hall, covered in a WT-SE article, another Dubbie taps them on the shoulder to tell or makes an appearance at their Assembly the average JW isn't going to know or care about the new appointment.
So in that sense I say give Acrobat a break, he is kinda new to the whole interweb JW thing. I think he would do better to go to jwn but time will tell.
point well taken

I am sure Marvin Shilmer and all the other posters on www.jehovahs-witness.net would wholeheartedly endorse my appointment to the GB with great fan fair!
Sanderson born in 1965 means my generation isn't far behind.
sure,.... you could write an article about how tricky talking false prophets with the fake coming of jesus are really the new way god now communicates to his flock, since you add a day for a year and they must obey those in the lead and not question your academic skills.

No, but you could stop lying about having been at Bethel when the announcement was made. Guys like you aren't allowed in Bethel, you and I both know this.

By the way, my comments are not based on whether or not Sanderson is a member of the GB.

I am merely pointing out that Shilmer had not provided a solid cross reference in his article outright stating that fact.

And then he tells me to head on over to "mummy's website" to find it for myself? Well, if it's over there, why didn't/doesn't he link to it and provide an accurate xreference for his article?

You can't write an article and use another article written by yourself as a 'source'. It's absurd.
