I had a discussion with my brother, who is an elder, and this one went badly. I also think that I have not mastered myself, that I should have avoided talking about certain things. But the fact is that he reproaches me for studying the Bible. Indeed, while I was saying that we should not accept everything we are told, he told me that he does not agree, that it is not our job to study the Bible, but that it is that of the Governing Body. According to him, the GB members are like the Apostle Paul and have their reward assured in heaven. As I did not want to admit it, he got angry. He ordered me to speak to the elders of my congregation, which I did not, of course. After a few days, he phoned me to say that he was asking the elders to meet me. An elder has already called to tell me that he wants to come home to give me the badges for the assembly, which seems to me a big excuse because I do not see why he should come for that, seeing that usually they are distributed in the KH! So here is the sin for which I can not and want not repent: I read the Bible!
