Regarding the Governing Body’s “new light” relative to Matthew 24:45-47, Anointedjw.org recently said the following:
“This ‘new light’ certainly poses a problem for the Governing Body. Perhaps this is another reason why they have not yet published a sober and scriptural xplanation of this ‘new light.’ Perhaps in their attempt to write a logical and reasonable explanation, they have come up against problems like this and have not found a way out.”
When “Captives of a Concept” came out in 2004 it emphasized the importance of understanding the Society’s then current interpretation of Matthew 24:45-47. It doesn’t take long to realize the problems that old interpretation caused when compared to the organization’s history that related to that interpretation.
The book then said, “The Governing Body inherited their interpretation of Matthew 24:45-47 and are now stuck with it. To date they have not been able to figure a way to get out of it.”
It would seem that the Governing Body’s recent “new light” is their attempt to find a way out of the mess that was created by that “old light” interpretation. It may well be that their “new light” may just create an even bigger mess when or if they ever do try to explain it.
