I've always been confused as to what the discrepancy is between the phrases "spirit directed/spirit led" and "inspired".
In the February 2017 Watchtower Study article, paragraph 12 says:
12 The Governing Body is neither inspired nor infallible. Therefore, it can err in doctrinal matters or in organizational direction. In fact, the Watch Tower Publications Index includes the heading “Beliefs Clarified,” which lists adjustments in our Scriptural understanding since 1870. Of course, Jesus did not tell us that his faithful slave would produce perfect spiritual food. So how can we answer Jesus’ question: “Who really is the faithful and discreet slave?” (Matt. 24:45) What evidence is there that the Governing Body is filling that role? Let us consider the same three factors that directed the governing body in the first century.
So right off the bat, it states that the Governing Body is neither inspired nor infallible.
Definition of inspire
a : to influence, move, or guide by divine or supernatural inspiration
In the July 2017 JW Broadcasting, Tony Morris III says "We are proud to be a part of this spirit directed organization."
So they aren't inspired by spirit but are directed by spirit?
What does the article say again in paragraph 12?
"The Governing Body is neither inspired nor infallible. Therefore it can err in doctrinal matters and organizational direction."
But how is it possible to err in doctrinal matters and organizational direction if it is a spirit directed organization?
Is there a point I am missing?
