I guess what I want to know is the nature of their inspiration, do they hear voices, does God come to them in dreams or do they see visions or do they have some sort of burning bush at Brooklyn only they are privy to.
I think this is really important Speargrass. I started to wonder this just before I left. Nobody questions this and yet it is the most important thing in their belief system, that Jehovah speaks somehow through the Governing Body. Yet nobody asks how this happens, it seems to be an unspoken rule that you should not question it. By all means question it, in my view, because they have never explained it. Even though the whole reason for following their hundreds of rules depends on the supposed direction coming from God. Millions of people live their lives by all their instructions. Many have died because of them. It is about time they told JWs how they get these instructions.
