CT Russell: I think he started out sincere, feeling her really had stumbled onto something important and unique, but with time, he became an eccentric, full of himself. I think most of his close associates were equally sincere but misled.
JF Rutherford: I believe he was a mean, greedy, self-deluded con artist. He ruined whatever good that Russell may have done.
Knorr: A sincere business man.
Fred Franz: Much like Russell, I think he was sincere and yet felt he had been given special insight.
Current Governing Body: I understand that Jaracz is much like Rutherford ... but the rest are likely sincere ... but more than just misguided ... they have reached a point where they have no excuse left for their teachings and policies ... and they simply have not come to terms with the serious position they hold, and the concometant responsibility to truth. Dan Sidlik is of any member, in my opinion, the one most likely to reach cognitive dissonance, and resign.
All in all, I think the bigger problem is more than any level of con artistry, but more to do with a hard heart and too much faith in a system they created.
