Just curious--is anybody here knowledgable in how much time the various Governing Body members spend "sharing in the field ministry" after they are appointed? Specifically, going door to door? I'm just curious, after happening on the following quote from Randy's website:
It should be kept in mind, however, that for the most part, the theologians of Christendom do not go from house to house, and many Bible commentators tend to interpret the Scriptures in the context of their own experience. A more objective consideration of Jesus' instruction indicates that he was speaking about his disciples' searching out people individually, either from house to house or publicly, and presenting to them the message of the Kingdom. (Matthew 10:7) Their response would indicate whether they were deserving or not. Matthew 10:12-15.
This is seen in Jesus' words at Matthew 10:14: "Wherever anyone does not take you in or listen to your words, on going out of that house or that city shake the dust off your feet." Jesus was speaking about his disciples' making uninvited calls on people to preach to them. WT 1-1-88, p. 23
Anybody? Do those Governing Body members really meet for service, put together car groups, and start knocking? Also, as far as "interpreting scripture in the context of their own experience," isn't that exactly what Governing Body members do? (with a 2/3 majority vote first, of course.)
