Since there are 9 GB, then it would take only 6 men to have the power to affect the whole world of JWs.
Is It possible for a GB member to ABSTAIN from voting a proposed doctrine into 'law'.
Well, it proves one thing....that they are truly not god's channel of communication, like they used to teach.
If they were, they would have ALL voted the same.
I ask JW's on the matter of blood transfusions, would their conscience would be affected, if they knew that 50% or even 25% of the GB had voted to change the rules, but lacked enough votes to make it official. Of course it would.
