I've heard that line used even in situations when the counsel is unwarranted. It was said that JWs should accept counsel if even if they're innocent of that for which they're being counseled.
"Now, brother, you need to realize that life is sacred and doing things that might indicate that you view life lightly could jeopardize your position in the congregation. It's been said that you're speeding out on the interstate." I guess one, even if he does not speed, is supposed to reply "Oh, my dear brother, thank you so much for that loving counsel. I will try to implement it immediately. Thank you again."
He should be able to reply: "Who said I'm speeding? I'd like to face the person that said that."
