The FDS used to refer to itself as being a prophet or prophet class. It used to call itself "the Ezekiel class", "the Jeremiah class", etc. Didn't it stop doing that? If so, it seems to me that, as usual, doing so was reactive rather than proactive. I think the JW leaders knew that if the org continued to refer to the slave as being a prophet, then it would be easier for opponents to attack it with De 18:18-22 for its long history of failed predictions. It would also help to alleviate questions/doubts from believing JWs concerning the same passage. They could say "Well, the FDS isn't a prophet."
Any thoughts or insights? Is it true that the org no longer refers to the FDS as a prophet or prophet class?
[Seems like I might have read something about that on JWfacts, but don't have time to check right now.]
