JWs ask- where are the F&DS?

    I was thinking that maybe they must be, as the WT recently told the JWs that following the GB was like following god (no mention of the F&DS). Can someone post that WT quote from a few months ago? JWs must have noticed that the Faithul and Discreet Slave were left out and they will start asking- "where are they?" I have been hammering on this for awhile now- the WT does not assign any names to the F&DS, never says that any one individual GB member is one of the F&DS, nor do they explain how the GB gets direction from the F&DS. Maybe the JWs have figured out that the F&DS class don't really exist and have started calling the WT's bluff, "Just show me one of the F&DS!" Perhaps the WT has started to see, if the JWs will follow the GB on their own by pretending that the GB are getting their ideas from god. You don't hear the GB say that now do you? Will one of the Gb stand up and admit thay have no direct spiritual link to jesus or Jehovah?, or will they quietly let the WT begin turning them into spititual priests for JWs?

    Hi moshe. I think this is the quote you were looking for

    The anointed and their other sheep companions recognize that by following the lead of the modern-day Governing Body, they are in fact following their Leader, Christ.

    Do jw's today see by that quote that they look like they are equating Jesus with the gb?

    "The Society" <------- This is who they follow.

    "The Society" sends out the letters, it assigns them to conventions, it appoints the elders, it sends the CO, it writes the books, it publishes the magazines, etc.

    It doesn't matter what they call the leadership or who makes up 'The Society'. These details are unimportant to the victims of Thought Reform. Scriptures? Those don't matter either, because they MEAN whatever 'The Society' tells them they mean.

    Yes, in the sense that if they disobey the GB they are disobeying Christ.

    ***w10 1/15 pp.31-32 par.15 Jehovah's Way of Ruling Vindicated!***

    Each of us would do well to ask himself: 'Do I fully recognize the responsibilities that I should shoulder within the Christian congregation? Am I properly supporting Jehovah's way of governing? Am I proud to be a subject of Jehovah's ruling Kingdom? Am I determined to continue telling others about God's Kingdom to the extent that I reasonably can?' As a group, we willingly submit ourselves to the direction given by the Governing Body and cooperate with the appointed elders in the congregations. In such ways, we demonstrate our acceptance of God's way of ruling. (ReadHebrews13:17.)

    ***w10 7/15 p.6 par.15 What Jehovah's Day Will Reveal***

    some have become casual or even cynical about reminders concerning the need to stay awake. 'We have heard that same reminder for decades,' they may say. However, those individuals should keep in mind that by making such remarks, they are actually questioning Jehovah and his Son, not just the faithful slave class.

    ***w10 9/15 p.23 par.8 "Your Leader Is One, the Christ"***

    The anointed and their other sheep companions recognize that by following the lead of the modern-day Governing Body, they are in fact following their Leader, Christ.

    The Watchtower often uses the terms "Faithful and Discreet Slave" and "Governing Body" interchangeably.
