Ultimate Reality; It is always better to read it from the GB's point of view:
"The spirit that now operates in the sons of disobedience" is so widespread that it is like the air we breathe. (Eph. 2:2) That spirit can cause YOU to think that YOU do not need guidance from US.
Surely YOU do not want to be like Diotrephes, who would not 'receive anything from the apostle John with respect.' (3 John 9,10) YOU need to guard against developing a spirit of independence.
By word or action, may YOU never challenge US. (Num 16:1-3)
On the contrary, YOU should cherish YOUR privilege to cooperate with US. And should YOU not strive to be obedient and submissive to those taking the lead in YOUR local congregation? - Watchtower, November 15, 2009 p. 13
