"I firmly believe that the Governing body of Jehovah's witnesses is the faithful slave."
How do you know there is even a such thing as "the faithful slave"? The Bible account that refers to such an entity is a parable. Why do you consider it to be prophetic? Can you please convince me? I'd really love to have again the hope I once had as a JW.
Do you realize that it's only been in the last few years that JWs began to consider the governing body to be the faithful slave? For decades, JWs did not teach that. According to JW history and teaching, the faithful slave didn't know its own identity for decades.
Are you aware of all the false predictions of JWs? For example, it was clearly stated several times in JW publications that the end would come or at least begin before the 20th century ended? And, actually, the old "generation" teaching indicated that the end would have to arrive at the latest by 1994.
Millions living in the early 1900's were never supposed to die. The JW organization bought a mansion in California supposedly so that ancient faithful men such as David could live in it when they were resurrected in the 1920's.
De 18:21-22 (NASB): 21 You may say in your heart, ‘How will we know the word which the Lord has not spoken?’ 22 When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the Lord has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.
I gave JWdom my life and am suffering now because of its false predictions. It is all about money now. It no longer attempts to do deeper Bible analysis and defend its doctrine because it knows it can't win. JWdom is in retreat. It is weak, puny, wimpy. The seven members of the governing body wouldn't stand a chance in a debate with us on this forum. They know it, and they won't debate with us or anybody.
Do you really believe the new "generation" teaching? Do you even know what it is? Can you explain it to us? You mention "much thought, research, study and logical examination" on your part. Since you've engaged in such, can you defend the new "generation" teaching?
I really don't wish bad for you, but I sincerely believe that you must be somewhat unstable socially and maybe emotionally and perhaps of weaker constitution. I just see no way that anybody could return to JWdom. It is becoming more and more obvious that it is not what it claims to be.
