Now that all the members of the original Governing Body have completed their earthly course, a question popped into my mind.
I know that there was no Governing Body prior to 1971. Before that, how was Jehovah supposed to communicate with the anointed? And, how come he decided to have a Governing Body, so that the new light would come to more men, instead of just the president of the Watchtower? Why was a Governing Body not there since 1914, for example?
I wonder if there was anyone who felt cheated on when they decided to create a Governing Body.
I wasn't there, but I would appreciate any posts. Thank you.
