I have not read all 7+ pages of this thread, so forgive me if anyone else has pointed this out, but the "New Light" in this leaked article is not exactly the same as what is on the jw.org website from the Annual Meeting Report posted November 9th, 2012.
There, in answer to the question, "Who Really Is the Faithful and Discreet Slave?," the explanation given is this:
That slave is the small, composite group of anointed brothers serving at world headquarters during Christ’s presence who are directly involved in preparing and dispensing spiritual food. When this group work together as the Governing Body, they act as “the faithful and discreet slave."
This clearly says that the "Faithful and Discreet Slave" (FDS) is the Governing Body and only the Governing Body (GB) when they work together as a group. However, the wording in the "leaked 'New Light'" allows for the possibility of other, unspecified "anointed brothers" to also be part of the FDS:
Throughout the last days, the anointed brothers who make up the faithful slave have served together at headquarters. In recent decades, that slave has been closely associated with the Governing body of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Note, however, that the word “slave” in Jesus’ illustration is singular, indicating that this is a composite slave. The decisions of the Governing Body are thus made collectively.” (w13 7/15 p.22, par.10)
"Associated with" is NOT equivalent to "is the same as."
Admittedly, the wording is vague and open to interpretation, but it does allow for the inclusion of other "anointed" ones that are NOT part of the GB to be part of the FDS. In other words, the FDS need not be exclusively the GB.
That being said, also according to the leaked information posted on JWSurvey.org, the more concise language in the box on page 22 more clearly defines the FDS as the GB and only the GB:
“‘The faithful and discreet slave’: A small group of brothers who are directly involved in preparing and dispensing spiritual food during Christ’s presence. Today, these anointed brothers make up the Governing Body.” (w13 7/15 p.22 box)
Leave it to the Watchtower writers to come up with yet more unclear, ambiguous doctrines that must be blindly accepted no matter how confusing or unclear.
Why did I ever believe any of this nonsense?
