The whole dub notion of a Heavenly ruling class made up of Printing Corporation Elites hand-picked by the Creator Himself, started with the quasi-Calvinistic elitest founder of the Printing Corporation, namely, Chuck Russell. Russell was convinced he was somehow "special" and chosen at birth to do great things. Now Jesus felt the same way, but Chuck Russell wasn't no Jesus. That's for sure. You don't read about Jesus wanting to be buried in a toga, and if anyone had a right to be buried in a toga, it certainly would have been Jesus, and not Russell. And if Jesus would have married, he would have at least had the common sense to have some sex with his wife now and then. I mean, why have marriage without sex? I don't know. Chuck Russell did that, but he's dead, so we can't interview him. Ditto with Nathan Knorr.
The Watchtower Corporation wants to convince you that this 144,000 CLASS of Kings & Priests who were hand-picked by God from among the creme de la creme of humanity over a period of 2,000 years are not really "special" or "better" than the rest of the mortals like us. They're just "different." I say "bullshit" to that! They ARE different. Every damn prophecy in the Bible points to THEM, and only a few piddly prophecies point to US. The Ransom and New Covenant was for THEM, not us. We're dog-meat by comparison. You'd better believe they're different. You'd better believe a Caste system exists in WatchtowerLand, whether they deny it or not.
One of the most pathetic things about human existence is the fact that every lousy human being on this planet is always looking for ways to feel superior over some other human being or beings. Stupid people think smart people are jerks and smart people think stupid people are idiots. Ugly people think pretty people are too vain, and pretty people think ugly people are deformed. On and on it goes.
So it should come as no surprise that in a religion like Christianity which has at its very foundation that all people are brothers and equal in the eyes of God, and that the good people would all be rewarded equally by God, someone would come along and screw all of that up.
Enter Chuck Russell and the leaders of just about every other mainstream Christian religion.
A little common sense will tell us that this whole notion of a heavenly CLASS of 144,000 Ruling Kings is not only stupid, it's insulting to God. Imperfect humans do need guidance. No doubt about that. That's why we have governments today. But if Watchtower bullshit is to be believed, very soon 99.9% of the imperfect humans will be eliminated by a kind and just God, who considers worldwide massacre a "kind" thing to do. But that's not the point. When all the slaughtering is done, only the BEST of humanity will be left on earth: namely, those who got away with faking field service time, sucked-up to Circuit Overseers, never got caught molesting little girls, cheating their employees, watching Internet porn and God-knows what else. And of course, these ones who will make up the best of what's left of humanity, NEVER regularly masturbated. Never!
As those righteous souls march into the newly-cleansed earth, they will already have a head start. They're all supposed to be wonderful, deserving people, not people who need lots and lots of governing. Well, maybe they will at first, but what about after say, 500 years, when they're darn close to human PERFECTION, or when they finally REACH perfection at the end of that millennium? Do you honestly think that PERFECT people who have survived all of those Bible-God tests, trials, tribulations and gambits need 144,000 Angels in Heaven to peek into their bedrooms slap them on the wrists, make and enforce laws, and hold courts and try people? NO! Look at how well the United States did with a bunch of frail patriots, many of whom were self-serving and not even Christians, but they came up with the best system of Government ever devised by man.
Think then, about a planet populated by PERFECT people, who never sin, never steal, never lie, never commit adultery and never rape or murder. Will they need 144,000 judges and lawmakers to "help them out?" NO! If God wanted something done, he could just mail a letter to earth, and the people on earth would be happy to oblige. Besides that, they would know the drill and mandate from God's past dealings with man: "You screw up, I KILL YOU!"
It's as simple as that, folks. 144,000 Kings & Priests "Ruling" earth for eternity is bullshit. Not only that, all the bad angels would have also been massacred at Armageddon by Bible-God, so those "Rulers" wouldn't even need to rule over angels. They would have nothing whatsoever to do, except perhaps lie to each other how great and wonderful they all area. And masturbate. That's about it.
