There was also a specific delegation of French-speaking guests. Initially I thought it was paranoia, plain and simple, until I heard one of them communicating my whereabouts. I pretended not to hear him. Someone gave the guard an order, and he politely stopped me.

The guards were volunteers for the convention, as was everyone else. It's a style of planning and teamwork that must be well practiced after decades of carving up a neighbourhood into sectors and knocking on every door. Apparently the Jehovah's Witnesses' volunteer security force had been in New Orleans since Thursday, learning the lay of the land and planning everything.

At every entry and exit, there were at least two guards posted. Plus, their floral-printed dresses and charcoal suits made most guests look like they were dressed for a wake.

As a further sign of their top-down control of every aspect of the convention, or maybe just a tight budget, none of the concession booths were open. In Litchfield, Ill. In Rockville, Md. By the end of the year, the American Civil Liberties Union estimated that 1, Witnesses had been assaulted in separate attacks. The reversal of Gobitis in Barnette just three years later was remarkably swift considering the typical pace of deliberations in the Supreme Court.

The facts of the two cases mirrored each other, but the outcome differed dramatically. Most important, in ruling that Witness children could not be forced to recite the pledge, the new majority rejected the notion that legislatures, rather than the courts, were the proper place to address questions involving religious liberty.

Fundamental rights depend on the outcome of no elections. Today, the Witnesses still proselytize, but their right to do so is well established thanks to their long legal campaign. Over time they became less confrontational and blended into the fabric of American life.

Peter's words apply with equal force to overseers in the congregation today. The responsibility of overseers today is the same as it was in the first century, namely, to shepherd the flock of God. In his letter, Peter emphasized the proper attitude that overseers should have in caring for such responsibility. Imitating Jesus, they should serve willingly and eagerly as examples to the flock, taking the lead in Jehovah's service.

We can be grateful for the spirit-appointed overseers in the congregation.

The benefits we receive are many. For example, overseers give spiritual encouragement and personal attention to the needs of individual members of the congregation. Each week they preside with earnestness at congregation meetings, where all are nourished in the faith. Organized to Do Jehovahs Will Page 28 To ensure proper care of the congregation, men appointed to serve as overseers must meet the requirements set out in God's Word. Only if they qualify can it be said that they are appointed by holy spirit.

Acts Admittedly, the Scriptural standards for Christian overseers are high, since these men have the serious responsibilities of taking the lead in Jehovah's worship and of being exemplary in Christian conduct.

The high standards call for those appointed as elders to be good examples in the congregation. It should be obvious to all that the overseers are individuals who apply Bible counsel in the affairs of life. The apostle Paul set out in his first letter to Timothy and his letter to Titus the basic Scriptural requirements for overseers.

At 1 Timothy , we read: "If any man is reaching out for an office of overseer, he is desirous of a fine work.

The overseer should therefore be irreprehensible, a husband of one wife, moderate in habits, sound in mind, orderly, hospitable, qualified to teach, not a drunken brawler, not a smiter, but reasonable, not belligerent, not a lover of money, a man presiding over his own household in a fine manner, having children in subjection with all seriousness; if indeed any man does not know how to preside over his own household, how will he take care of God's congregation?

Moreover, he should also have a fine testimony from people on the outside, in order Organized to Do Jehovahs Will Page 29 that he might not fall into reproach and a snare of the Devil.

For an overseer must be free from accusation as God's steward, not self-willed, not prone to wrath, not a drunken brawler, not a smiter, not greedy of dishonest gain, but hospitable, a lover of goodness, sound in mind, righteous, loyal, self-controlled, holding firmly to the faithful word as respects his art of teaching, that he may be able both to exhort by the teaching that is healthful and to reprove those who contradict. Other Bible writers discuss additional Christian qualities required of men appointed as overseers, or shepherds, of the congregation.

Although the Scriptural requirements may at first seem to be somewhat overwhelming, there should be no reason for Christian men to shy away from desiring the fine work associated with the office of overseer. By taking the lead in manifesting fine Christian qualities, overseers encourage other members of the congregation to do the same. This is indicated by what the apostle Paul wrote in describing how "gifts in men" are provided "with a view to the readjustment of the holy ones, for ministerial work, for the building up of the body of the Christ, until we all attain to the oneness in the faith and in the accurate Organized to Do Jehovahs Will Page 30 knowledge of the Son of God, to a full-grown man, to the measure of stature that belongs to the fullness of the Christ.

Paul instructed Timothy and Titus to appoint qualified men in the congregation to serve as overseers.

They would not be mere boys or newly converted men, "but they would be individuals with experience in Christian living, reflecting a broad knowledge of the Bible, a deep understanding of it, and a genuine love for the congregation.

The overseers would be individuals who have the courage to speak up when wrongdoing exists and to take the needed action to correct it, thus protecting the flock from any who would selfishly exploit them. Their overall way of life would show this. Those qualifying for appointment as overseers of the flock of God would be demonstrating a measure of practical wisdom in their daily lives.

If married, they would be adhering to the Christian standard for marriage, namely, husband of one wife, and would be presiding over their own household in a fine manner. If the overseer has believing children who are in subjection with all seriousness and are not under a charge of debauchery nor unruly, other members of the congregation could confidently approach the overseer for counsel and advice on a wide range of personal matters having to do with family life and Christian living.

Having conducted themselves properly within the family arrangement as well as within the community Organized to Do Jehovahs Will Page 31 in general, these men would also be irreprehensible, be free from accusation, and have a fine testimony even from people on the outside.

No valid charge of improper conduct could be brought against them to mar the reputation of the congregation. They would not have been reproved recently for serious wrongdoing. Others in the congregation would be moved to imitate this fine example and entrust their spiritual life to the shepherds' care.

Such qualified men would be able to serve the Christian congregation in a role similar to that of the older men of Israel who were described as "wise and discreet and experienced.

Their blamelessness would give them freeness of speech before the congregation. Men qualifying for appointment as overseers would display moderation in personal habits and in their dealings with others.

They would not be fanatics, but their way of life would be characterized by balance, orderliness, and self-control. Moderation would be demonstrated in such things as eating, drinking, recreation, hobbies, and entertainment.

They would be moderate in the use of alcoholic beverages so as not to leave themselves open to charges of drunkenness or of being a drunken brawler. One whose senses have been dulled by intoxicating drink easily loses self-control and is not in a position to watch over the spiritual interests of the congregation.

Exercising oversight of the affairs of the congregation requires a man to demonstrate a measure of or- Organized to Do Jehovahs Will Page 32 derliness, being systematic in life, habits, and work. This includes his personal appearance, his home, and his personal activities. Such a man avoids procrastination, and he is able to see what is required and to plan accordingly. He adheres to theocratic order.While each of our book covers are designed to fit a number of books of similar size, our CSH, CMD and CLG book covers are designed to perfectly fit the pocket-size, standard and large print revised editions of the New World Translation.

But their persistence in fighting in the courts for their beliefs had a dramatic impact on constitutional law. What is the holy spirit? Leaving the convention I realised that a lot of what I'd just been through had been somewhat normal, though only in an uncanny valley kind of way, or like in a David Lynch film.

In a time of history when fundamentalism and cults seem to increase daily, Diane Wilson's book is the record of a journey from childhood abuse to find a "family" in the local Kingdom Hall of the Jehovah's Witnesses to disenchantment with this cult and how she finally broke free. We are told at Acts "Indeed, the congregations continued to be made firm in the faith and to increase in number from day to day.

Are they simply another Protestant denomination of Christianity?
