    The Jan 15,2010 WT, to be studied on March 29th to April 4th, entitled "Jehovah's way of ruling to be vindicated".

    Paragraph 10 to 12 - a few of the statements, my comments in quotations...... The nation of Israel proved unwilling to serve Jehovah faithfully. (in what sense?) Eventually, they rejected God's appointed Messiah, and Jehovah rejected them and purposed to replace them with a group fo people who formed a new nation. Between the original nation of Israel and the new "Israel of God" there are both differences and similarities. Unlike ancient Israel, the Christian congregation HAS NO HUMAN KING and it has no need for offering animal sacrifices in behalf of sinners. (no human king huh?) One similarity between the nation of Israel and the Chrisitian congregation is the arrangement of older men, or elders. (you mean pharisees right?) Such Christian elders do not rule over the flock. (really now? ) Rather, they shepherd (you mean rule) the congregation and unstintingly take the lead in Christian activities. By meditatating on God's dealings with Israel, members of "the Israel of God" and their "other sheep" companions develop greater appreciation for Jehovah and HIS WAY OF GOVERNING. (you mean through the GB kings and pharisees who really aren't). For example, history shows that the human rulers of Israel greatly influenced their subjects, either for good or bad. That fact impresses upon those taking the lead among Christians that, although they are not rulers like those ancient kings, they must always set a good example of faith. (Hey can anybody lend me a shovel here, there is cow dung all over the place, if tyranically setting doctrine, DFing any who don't 100% agree, etc is not ruling as king, but just leading by faith, then what is?)

    It gets even better, after another GB praise paragraph in 14, paragraph 15 says, "Each of us would do well to ask himself: Do I fully recongize the responsibilities that I should shoulder within the Christian congregation? Am I properly supporting Jehovah's way of governing? Am I proud to be a subject of Jehovah's ruling Kingdom? Am I determined to continue telling others about God's kingdom to the extend that I reasonably can? As a group, we willingly submit ourselves to the direction given by the Governing Body and cooperate with teh appointed elders in the congregations. In such ways, we demonstrate our acceptance of God's way of ruling. (READ Hebrews 13:17) Willing submission results in a worldwide unity that is unique in this divided world. It also produces peace and righteousness and brings glory to Jehovah, demonstrating that his way of ruling is by far the best.

    Here's some other discussion. The anointed have been called the Israel of God for some time. The WTS has applied it to the jw anointed for many years. That is how the WTS connects them to the 144,000 (12 tribes of Israel)

    (Galatians 6:12-16) 12All those who want to make a pleasing appearance in the flesh are the ones that try to compel YOU to get circumcised, only that they may not be persecuted for the torture stake of the Christ, Jesus. 13 For not even do those who are getting circumcised keep the Law themselves, but they want YOU to be circumcised that they may have cause for boasting in YOUR flesh. 14 Never may it occur that I should boast, except in the torture stake of our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom the world has been impaled to me and I to the world. 15 For neither is circumcision anything nor is uncircumcision, but a new creation [is something]. 16 And all those who will walk orderly by this rule of conduct, upon them be peace and mercy, even upon the Israel of God.

    *** w50 7/15 p. 211 par. 2 Equipping the New World Organization ***Jesus Christ, "the faithful and true witness" (Rev. 3:14), formed and organized his body of spirit-anointed followers almost two thousand years ago. They made up a Christian or spiritual Israel of God, under a new covenant with him by a Mediator greater than Moses, Jesus Christ, and all of them being Jews inwardly whose circumcision was a cleansing of their hearts from the uncleanness of this world.

    I definitely say that the hounders are tyrants. They demand "double honor" without proving themselves worthy of it. And, they demand that, if the Filthful and Disgraceful Slavebugger (or the hounders) are teaching something wrong, even if you can prove it wrong right from their own Bible, you are supposed to continue to abide by and TEACH the bad teaching until the Filthful and Disgraceful Slavebugger (or the hounders) correct the error. Suppose the hounders' teachings are wrong, not only with the Bible or reality but against the doctrine of the Filthful and Disgraceful Slavebugger itself? Now, they have you either way.

    Tyrants? Definitely.
