I went to the Australian Zone Visit this weekend. But I'm on some pain killers at the moment and didn't feel well enough to take notes. Higher education was criticcised again. Proverbs 4:18 was mentioned. The definitions of the "faithful and discreet slave" were discussed. Then I heard something about the great tribulation having already begun????? "Conditions do not need to deteriorate and problems do not have to impact every person on earth, in order for the tribulation to begin. Jehovah can take action any time." My brain is a little fuzzzy so I am not real sure if I heard that propely. I'm hoping that some fellow Aussies on the forum will be able to confirm what was said. Is this the Australian Watchtower Society's response to the Australian Royal Commission?
