(Not serious) So who else saw the new understanding on polygamy in this week's Watchtower?


Recommended Posts

Week of November 23, 2020 - paragraph 13.

Quote

In addition, wives help their husband to carry a heavy load in the congregation and in the organization.

Hahah, I am of course kidding - just seems to be a strange wording - compare to Ephesians 5:22

Quote

Let wives be in subjection to their husbands as to the Lord,

Language can be funny at times.

I know a couple that were sent to a foreign land to help the local translators understand and translate English idioms and illustrations. He told me that one WT article made a lot of sisters in that area very upset. The article was about having a good marriage and that a woman's mate should be not only her husband but also her best friend. The sisters thought the article was saying they should have a husband and a boyfriend 😳. The brothers had to explain that wasn't what it meant.🤣

It’s the “s”. I was staring at this for a good 5 minutes trying to understand how it was grammatically Incorrect. It was meant to say basically all married women AKA all Wives. It was used in a general sense. Plus this quote takes that sentence out of context since the question to paragraph 13 (Was See Quote)

13. What are Christian women doing today, and how can we show our appreciation for what they do?

That aside it’s a good joke
