"faithful and discreet slave"
It seems to me we are looking for a coup in a single Bible verse - or phrase. Eventually, even the 'one foot in the grave'
gerontocrats in Watchtower-Land must realize that Jesus was simply delegating authority to WHOEVER was faithful and wise.
Once that intrepretation takes hold, anybody can run the Watchtower ( oops, no sisters allowed!). The whole 'anointed ' - elite
thing goes out the window and that's that.
This would only be rationalizing what already exists since the idea of the 'anointed' running things is a practical fiction, anyway.
Actually, it was a fiction all along since , in times past, they didn't ask partakers their opinion on anything - in the days of Knorr
and the Judge.
I'm interested in more rumors that they finally have straightened this stupid mess out - and will teach accordingly.
