The members of the governing body, by being at the reins of a large corporation, must be confronted with situations which force them to think about the validity of their doctrines.
The Australian Royal Commission hearing must have highlighted for the GB, especially Jackson, the rational inconsistency of using an Iron Age dictum of "two witnesses" in a world which has moved beyond such rough justice. Today we have a scientific approach, we examine forensically, we have psychologists who can tell us about individual's minds and behaviour. Today, children's voices are not ignored.
The first and last resort of JWs and their leaders is the doctrine of the "Inerrancy of the Bible". It is a belief which is unsubstantiated by fact. When pitched against rational thinking and practice, the Bible comes out as completely out of date and virtually useless.
I really wonder how many of the GB know this?
Who will be the next to resign as a matter of conscience?
