    To all that have an interest, I am eager to hear your response to the statement on page 20, par. #19. "In fact,......(quoting MAtt 25:34-40)

    Are we to believe that those in the Org, are like the Nethinim that came out of Babylon, we are "slaves" - WT 4/15 1992 page 13 par 14-23

    I am interested as an elder has made this an example of equality to view JW's stance today.

    You can put the whole paragraph here without copyright problems.

    19 Among those “gifts in men” are the

    members of the Governing Body,who act in

    a representative way for the entire Christian

    congregation. (Acts 15:2, 6) In fact, our attitude

    toward Christ’s spiritual brothers is a

    major factor that will determine how we

    will be judged during the coming great tribulation.

    (Matt. 25:34-40) Thus, one aspect of

    the way we gain a blessing is by giving our

    loyal support to God’s anointed ones.

    20 The “gifts in men” also include members

    of Branch Committees, traveling over-

    seers, and congregation elders—all ofwhom

    have been appointed by holy spirit. (Acts 20:

    28) These brothers’ primary responsibility

    is to build up God’s people “until . . . all attain

    to the oneness in the faith and in the

    accurate knowledge of the Son of God, to a

    full-grown man, to the measure of stature

    that belongs to the fullness of the Christ.”

    (Eph. 4:13) Granted, like the rest of us, they

    are imperfect. Still, we bless ourselves when

    we respond appreciatively to their loving
