Just out of idle curiosity I typed ''obey the governing body'' into the only CDubRom I could get my paws on, 2009 and found this piece of 'mind cleansing' from WT54 9/1 pg 538
IMPATIENCE LEADING TO PRESUMPTION
13 In recognizing the theocratic organization one must not fail to obey the advice: “Wait for Jehovah, and keep his way.” “Wait for Jehovah: be strong, and let thy heart take courage; yea, wait thou for Jehovah.” (Ps. 37:34; 27:14, AS) For one thing, this means not running ahead of the organization in various ways. One may do this in a negative way. How? One may receive from the organization a reproof for having made a misstep or for wrong conduct in one’s position of service. If the reproved one says to himself, “They do not appreciate my service,” he is overestimating himself, taking himself too seriously, and he fails to see the point of the reproof. If he feels keenly hurt at the reproof he may persuade himself that he is of no use in the position of service or he may feel he should retaliate. So, taking matters into his own hands, he abruptly quits the position without giving notice and moves out without any orders from the organization’s governing body to do so, and thus leaves the position of service to take care of itself. That is hasty, ill-advised action. A reproof is not a discharge from a position; it is a correction for the benefit of the position and the one occupying it. The right thing to do is to take the reproof as something deserved and to cause one to do better, to act correctly in carrying out organization instructions, and then wait upon the organization for its next move, whether to discharge the reproved one or to retain him in the same position in view of adopting a changed course. Remember: “The reproofs [or, admonitions] of discipline are the way of life.” (Prov. 6:23, RS; AT) Benefit by the reproofs, wait upon Jehovah as represented by his theocratic organization, and live.
Did you see what I saw in that?
Just shoved a 'screenie' here to show other refs for ''Obey the faithful slave'' (admittedly not all the refs blatantly say to OBEY the FS, some don't refer to the FD$ but it gives a feel.
Would you say they are getting MORE aggressive in their 'OBEY us or ELSE' schtick?
