PUTTING LOYALTY to the Governing Body ahead of common sense

The above is from the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses

However, even if we or an angel out of heaven were to declare to you as good news something beyond the good news we declared to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, I now say again, Whoever is declaring to you as good news something beyond what you accepted, let him be accursed.
How can you exercise sound judgement when you are being brain washed 15 hours a week?
Most religions proclaim that they are god's mouth piece and therefore should be observed subserviently and obeyed at all times, even if wrong
decisions were made to cause grief .
The interesting part is they all make opposing doctrines different from one and another.
Each claim that those other Christian based religions are false religions, fatally disadvantageous to follow or be a devout member of, displeasing to God.
Each claim that if you were to put question to their doctrines they will label you as an evil apostate instigated by Satan himself.
Sounds like someone has just independently endeavored themselves toward their own self empowerment randomly without a god to guide them in their direction.
.... Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
