Throughout the years, the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society has never disappointed Jehovah’s Witnesses in applying pressure to perform in the door-to-door preaching. Do more is their admonition if you want to gain everlasting life. Do more, without letup, making known God’s name and preaching the good news of the kingdom under any type of circumstances. If it were not for the mandatory social distancing laws by the government, during COVID-19, Jehovah’s Witnesses surely would be out in the territory seeking to find individuals that are down and out and looking for answers to life’s most perplexing questions.
What better time to show up on the doorstep of unsuspecting victims during this most tragic time of need calming their fears by promising them a chance to live forever in a paradise earth.
After meetings were cancelled around the world due to mandatory social distancing, Jehovah’s Witnesses began using teleconferencing services such as Zoom to conduct their weekly meetings. Although the friends were attending meetings in the comfort of their own homes, they were still expected to dress up as if they were physically at the Kingdom Hall.
Sad to say, there have been reports about Jehovah’s Witnesses being counseled for not wearing appropriate attire or being properly groomed. One elder told a brother that he looked like he had not shaved in several weeks. Still others were told to turn on their cameras and to take selfies and email them to the elders to show how many in the family attended the meeting.
In some cases, the brothers are recommending that those in attendance sit in straight back chairs instead of lounge chairs. One family was blocked from attending the meeting because they had a generic name for their computer. After changing it to the name of their family, they were allowed to attend. If these are supposed to be public meetings, why does the name of the computer make a difference? The Watchtower organization is acting much like big brother keeping tabs on Jehovah’s Witnesses, a stark reminder of the movie 1984, by George Orwell. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteen_Eighty-Four
