I did not believe my ears yesterday during the sunday closing speech at the convention, held by the Branch coordinator.
The Slave class was called "Jehovah's prophet". This is new to me. I know they claim not to be inspired directly.
But the term "prophet" is much more then "not inspired". Dictionary's discribe "prophet":
In religion, a prophet, from the Greek word προφ?της profitis meaning "foreteller", is an individual who is claimed to have been contacted by the supernatural or the divine, and serves as an intermediary with humanity, delivering this newfound knowledge from the supernatural entity to other people.
I know the Branch coordinator in our country does not add words in a speech. He is an old man, very loyal to the Brooklyn boys.
Conclusion could be that the Governing Body is taking more power and wants to end the "not inspired" label.
Did somebody hear this at other conventions too?
