Thanks to everyone that provided feedback on our video, the Watchtower Service Department Part One.
In fact, Andy Sandoval left a comment and gives one of the bestsummations I’ve ever heard that aptly describes the Watchtower Service Department.
He say’s and I quote, “There is so much secrecy in the Watchtower Corporation. I would always wonder how the service department works. I only got death stares from circuit and district overseers when I would ask how the service department works and what policies they follow. This is the department that keeps all the records of judicial committee cases, appointments, deletions, and other problems etc. This department receives the reports from the circuit overseers after they visit a Congregation and inform of any problems found in their weekly visit. This department also receives reports from the Bethel Guest speaker about how an assembly was conducted. The service department handles calls from elders and now recently e-mails (no more letters sent) on how to handle problems and whether or not a situation merits disfellowshipping, deletion of privileges or any other discipline for a JW that broke any rules. The most hardcore company men are chosen to serve in this secretive department. I personally knew 1 Bethel brother that was transferred to this department and after only month was literally physically sick to his stomach of all the reports and cases, he had to handle involving elders committing adultery, fights among elder bodies, child molestation (those cases are handled 1st by the legal dept but afterwards transferred to the service dept) and cases of fraud amongst appointed brothers! He left Bethel as well. It is equivalent to the KGB in the former Soviet Union, CIA for the U.S. and the hit men for the mafia. This is where all the dead skeletons are buried and where elders get their marching orders on how to execute punishment for the difficult cases where the elder manual and policy letters do not provide enough info. The company men at the service department have memorized the elder manual, organized book, policy letters and correspondence guidelines and answer all questions regarding their self-righteous judicial process dished out on the rank and file.”
Yes, I like the way Andy made that statement, “they know where the bodies are buried”
This department operates in an ALL BUSINESS and no-nonsense manner because when your call is answered by someone in the Service Department, they will ask you two questions:
- What is your name? and
- Which congregation are you calling from?
But, if you ask them to provide their name, they will not tell you!
Now, think about this: here is a brother on the other end of the telephone, someone that is supposed to be willing to die for you, and yet when you ask them to provide their name, they are unwilling to cooperate.
Clearly, you can see the double-standards that exist in the organization.
Now, some of you may be familiar with the trial of the Australian Royal Commission. During that trial, Rodney Sphinx, a member of the Service Department in Australia was called to testify. This is one of the best examples of a member of the service department IN ACTION!!!
For those of you that are unfamiliar with this case, I’ve included a link in the description of this video on how you can watch the trial.
So, this is what the service department is all about. The individuals that work in this department are STRAIGHT UPSociety men. Those chosen to work in this department have fully demonstrated their devotion to the organization. They are loyal persons that will never deviate!
Imagine how his colleagues back at Bethel were no doubt cheering him on because he held his ground and never deviated. And, this is what earns him the right to work in this department.
OK, now I want to share an experience about how the Watchtower Society provides what is known as a “one off” where they provide information to a congregation with a unique situation and then I will go back and critically examine the issue.
There is a letter written by the Watchtower Society on December 24, 1992 that dealt with two issues:
- Murder and
Let’s take a further look at this issue.
There was a congregation that wrote to the Society where they expressed a concern where about a person in the congregation that has confessed to committing several murders along with other crimes. Basically, the brothers are asking whether they are obligated to turn this man in or not.
Now, this man is a fugitive from the law and everyone knows that in society crimes such as this have no statute of limitations.
A lot of criminals realize they can hide out with Christians, so that makes me wonder, who are you sitting next to at the Kingdom Hall.
