According to J.W.`s the 144000 are a literal number of people , both men and women taken from the earth to rule with Christ Jesus in the heavens .This would also include judging in this role. (see another thread about women as judges)
Women in the religion of J.W.`s have no place in leadership roles ,cannot be Elders , Ministerial Servants , or serve in any position of authority , and have no teaching voice in any congregation .
Yet faithful anointed women can , upon their death rule with Christ Jesus in Heaven for 1000 years according to J.W. understanding of the Bible , dictated by the Governing Body.
Is their a major inconsistency here ?
Their are something like 13-14000 Anointed remnant on earth today claiming to be of the "Heavenly class" comprising of both men and women in the Jehovah`s Witness religion today who expect to rule with Jesus in Heaven .
It is also interesting to note the illustrations in the Watchtower publications about the 144000 , they are always drawn as men with beards ,not a woman to be found , why is that do you think .!
And as the saying goes "A picture is worth more than a thousand words"
