I was just wondering if I'm correct about something; namely, that the Society's leaders don't appear to know much about the Bible from a secular, scholarly, or historical perspective.
I've seen quotes posted here where they claim you don't need to be an expert to interpret the Bible's true meaning. That's not exactly encouraging. But does anyone know much about their real world, practical knowledge of the Bible from a non-religious perspective?
Many JWs seem to believe the GB and even the writing committees are experts on the subject. But if this is true, I can't say that their writings reflect it very much. At best, they seem like amatuers who inject bits and pieces of stuff they've read here or there into their own writings. Sometimes, their articles seem unintentionally ironic, but only if you know something about the subject at hand beyond what they teach.
Any thoughts, or even real knowledge, on the subject of their expertise?
