Emails like this show how dangerous some veiw unfettered truth.
I can just imagine if we were back to medieval times and the JW was the religion of the Empire they would probably put you in the mask and pour molten hot lead down your mouth, and think even that treatment would be good for you. Alan is so right if given the chance some would kill, that's the way mind control is, it gets people to do the unthinkable, and think nothing of it.
I'll defend your right to say it, but it doesn't mean I beleive it.
A serious question, the way i see it, is: If the faithful and discreet slave is made up of anointed ones, then why are not anointed ones called in from where ever in the world they might be so they can continue the governing body activity? These anointed all supposedly have gods spirit, so any one of them could channel the new truths from jesus, jehovah or whoever. The last i heard there were still around 8000 'anointed'. If 'jehovah' is really leading this thing with his spirit, why do they pass over 8000 spirit bearing jws, and use non-spiritual 'earthly' earthlings? I think this shows that the spirit of god has about as much to do with directing this org as.... You know what i mean.

Do you know the poem about Boston, the home of the bean and the cod, Where the Lowells talk only to the Cabots, and the Cabots talk only to God.
Well, the GB have one-way conversations with everybody but themselves. And to God. Clearly that has been one-way too.
They have had a history of paying attention to NO ONE outside their mutual preening society--that is, except for the Legal Department, now running the show and trying to shovel the elephant dung that's clearly all over the place.
Sorry to push the Nethinim thing, but can anyone clarify the extent of abandoning the Nethinim/"given ones" teaching?
This 'understanding' seems to be still widely held and as the GB get older and give up official authority, it appears to be the only way they can justify giving more power to non-anointed when there are 8000+ partakers.
The whole anointed/other sheep/GB concept is becoming increasingly strained as time goes on.
