Religious people in general and the JWs in particular often make claims of being "spirit directed".
Normally it's thrown out as a rather glib claim of being inspired by god / jehovah and to justify any decisions they make via an appeal to authority.
But think about it for a moment - suppose it were true ... how would it actually work? When they talk about elders appointments and decisions being "spirit directed" what exactly does the mechanism consist of? Does some unseen force make hem raise their hand when they otherwise wouldn't? Does something make them say words that are not really theirs? You either have free will or you don't - if you're going to make the wrong decision then how does some spirit change it to the right one?
However you try to explain it, it's difficult to come to any other explanation other than "possession".
Really, if someone is going to make the wrong decision and the 'spirit' corrects them then how does it do this other than possessing them? How else does it influence people's decisions or actions?
So why don't they proudly claim that they are spirit possessed? Well, as soon as you read those words you know/
It screams nutter and mentally unbalanced. Suddenly it's a million miles away from noble and righteous sounding and is in the realms of The Exorcist and Hammer House of Horror B Movies.
So remember, every time you read the words "spirit directed" just substitute the word "supernaturally possessed" and then decide if it sounds quite so impressive, quite so worthy of respect, quite so noble and demanding of respect and reverence. They are claiming spirit possession after all.
