Are they implying the 'Ministers who teach the bible' reported number is the number of JWs in that country?
I was also wondering, Incognito, if this includes unbaptised publishers including young children , as total jw's in a particular country?
Also, are women who cannot be " ministerial servants" now " ministers"? And can they now officially " teach"?
Maybe someone can explain? Also ( my pet peeve) why *Pheobe, of Romans 16.1, is called a " Deacon"
A notable woman in the church of Cenchreae, she was trusted by Paul to deliver his letter to the Romans. ... "I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deacon of the church in Cenchreae"
Deacon, of course, is a ministerial serpent. But she was doing here the job of a circuit overseer..
