Way Forward

This looks like an attempt to get the judicial council to weigh in on one alternative over another. The COB wants them to put their thumb on the scales. I hope the Judicial Council simply sends this request back to the COB.

Cart before the horse?

I don't pretend to understand all the esoteric workings of this process, but how can the Judicial Counsel rule on the constitutionality of a provision that has not yet been (a) submitted as a legislative proposal with the details in fine print and (b) actually passed by the General Conference. This seems more like an attempt by the COB to request an advisory opinion on proposals which might not even command the majority of the delegates' votes in an effort to prevent some provision from even being considered by the delegates of the General Conference. It smells of fear rather than trust in the process and trust in God's will as revealed in the decisions of the General Conference.
