Have you ever been the victim of a JC? Want to know the official rules? Here's a link to the Shepherding the Flock of God book that only elders can have. Rank and file pubs aren't allowed to read it, even wives aren't allowed to read it. It's a secret.

The first difference I noticed is that under child molester instructions, they changed "leave it in Jehovah's hands" to keep a permanent record in the file until further facts present themselves. I guess they got stung by all the negative press and lost court actions!!
Every day people are straying away from the church and going back to god!-Lenny Bruce (1925-1966)
This is really a good resource when dealing with the organization, in the process of leaving or the aftermath thereof. Knowledge about how the elders are supposed to deal with different situations might be an advantage!

You know, while still in and believing, for me personally it probably wouldn't have made a difference. I had swallowed the whole "congregation/elders is a loving arrangement, they need to sometimes be detailed and uncomfortable in order to keep the congregation clean"-doctrine. Who knows, maybe it would've planted a seed towards the dark side...
However, when those doubts had began to grow, it surely helped - both as an eye-opener and as an informative source on elders' behavior!
Haven't read through it all yet, but I was pissed off that anyone in an elder's household who enters higher education/university will most like get the elder demoted.
Only a few weeks ago when I had coffee with an elder and his wife they said rules about going to university has relaxed.
So I got the new book, and intentionally left it laying around. Sure enough, my wife couldn't resist. She also saw that same point and brought it up to me. It actually gave me a good chance to talk to her about her own concerns, because she always planned on our kids receiving some sort of higher education. We had a nice discussion and I got to make a couple good points that she agreed with. Needless to say, I still haven't put the book away, and hopefully it becomes a daily reader for her. :)
