    How many JWs know the name of their current President?

    Everyone knows about Russell, Rutherford, Knorr and Franz. Most know about Henschel but I haven't come across any that know the name of the current pres.

    I believe it's Don Adams - and he doesn't even claim to be one of the "remnant"!!

    You are right. Don adams is president.

    But last year the WTS was divided in two parts: The spiritual WTS and the business. i don't know for which of them DA is president.

    The whole idea behind this, according to the WTBS, was to 'free' the GB to devote themselves to spiritual matters so I would imagnine that Don is not sitting in and presiding over their meetings. His job is restricted to the legal corporation(s) under his care.

    Does anyone know about the other legal corporations and if they each have a CEO?

    Quote: "and he doesn't even claim to be one of the "remnant"

    Being of the remnant and serving in a legal capacity as president was chucked out the window in a study article prior to election of Don Adams as president.

    It was shown in the article scripturally, how the great crowd would take over for the remnant and would serve as "PRINCES" in all the earth.

    There is a complete diagram of the "new" WT on my site.
    In french, unfortunately, but listings are easy to understand.

    and then to topic : "Reorganisation de la Watch Tower" (Watch Tower reorganization).

    "PRINCES"-class cannot be the Great Crowd. Error. They only are elder, CO's DO's and higher pos...
    Horrible view...;-)

  • Erich

    I presume in some years every member of the "great crowd" has to wear a distinguishing mark, such as at the army etc.
    It's to characterize any sheep of being a PRINCE (MS, elder, CO, DO or higher..) or a plain one..

    What a nice cushy deal these G.B. old-farts have! Traveling the world being treated like royality! They need not worry about making a living & silly things like health ins., pay them no mind. They just make a few speeches on the evils of money, while the rank & file Dubs grovel in their uneducated,uninsured, low income little world. Kinda reminds ya of the Pope, doesn't it?
