In his book crisis of conscience, Raymond Franz likened the Governing Body to the proverbial 'Iron fist in a velvet glove'. This would seem harsh if it weren't for the fact that there is ample proof that their policies and teachings have caused much pain amongst the friends. For example, many families have been torn apart through their shunning policy. Or not being allowed to question anything they have written without the fear of possibly facing a judicial.
So my question is this! With so much bad press and criticism against them today, do you think the GB will EVER humble themselves as Jesus admonishes his followers at Matthew 20: 20-28?
will they continue their hard-line 'Iron fist in velvet glove' approach toward the friends.
