When I was at Bethel, each year the Bethel Family featured a program called “Family Night”.
Family Night was a variety entertainment show where the Bethelites had the opportunity to showcase their talent. It ranged anywhere from interviews with individuals discussing their Bethel career, regular pioneer service and those in the traveling work to individuals playing instruments, singing and dancing to secular music and everything in between.
Jehovah Witnesses would be quick to pose critical thinking questions to a Bible study whose church carried on such “worldly activities” in the pulpit of their church. Asking such questions as:
- “Does such this bring dignity to a place that is supposed to be for the worship of God?
- “Does this not remind one of what Moses heard when coming down the mountain?
- “If someone passed by and heard such entertainment would they think this is a club or a house of worship?’
Since Witnesses are taught that the Kingdom Hall is a place dedicated exclusively for the worship of God, imagine any Witness asking these same questions after seeing Kingdom Halls being used in such a manner during their recent International Conventions.
Why the double standard?
