    Its just a self imposed marketing agenda similar to any other religion out there in saying if you want to come into

    a true understanding and personal relationship with god. That article is loaded with self supporting jargon to establish themselves

    as what they are advertising and that is the WTS.and the GB members of this organization is the only true organization channeling

    god's holy spirit directly toward humanity. They say it with such humble demeanor that some people will emotional fall for

    their words and join the organization and that is exactly what they are striving for, obedient subservient mental slaves that can be

    exploited in peddling their published litature......all in the vein of godly spiritual devotion of course.

    What they are is legends in their own mind.

    the GB are also the executive directors of the Watchtower Publishing Corporation.

    Uh, no they're not, they all resigned as Corporation executives back in 2000. I believe the current president of the Watch Tower Society is Don Adams, not a GB member.

    December 10th 2010 W T Feb 14-20 "Reap Blessings Through God's Spirit-Guided King".

    Paragraph 19:

    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.

    This will be studied next Sunday.

    The title of the article Vanderhoven posted is Accountable to a Governing Body?

    Once again they have neither answered yes or no but instead use smoke and mirrors. On face value it looks like they are saying no but are in fact arguing yes.

    I think they have it backwards, it's how the master (GB) treats his sheep, that is important.

    Besides the GB is anything but discreet, they lord it over the JWs that they are their master and they must be obeyed, well just until Jesus comes back in person.

    No Apologies, so wouldn't there have to be other executives of the Corporation along with the President ?

    Interesting, so in other words they just reverted back to the old arrangement of just having one person as a legal Representative.

    Irregardless they have been self proclaiming themselves as Jesus's FDSL since 1919 and have been bullshitting

    to the public ever since then. Mind you it does help in the circulation of litature when you proclaim this, helps in self validation.

    Its all power baby, we know its there and we're intent on hanging on to it, in whatever means.

    This is god's will and purpose not ares.

    God appointed them yet by their own admission they are not inspired by God. Why listen to them then?

  • MrMonroe

    The Governing Body is a loving provision and an example of faith worthy of imitation.

    Who wrote those words in the 1998 WT?

    The Governing Body.

    Disappointing to see they missed the opportunity to describe themselves as humble as well.
