    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.

    No. Yes.


    Truth is not in them, neither is humility.

    YES! They are VERY humble! Many JWs told me that over the years after meeting them. My Mom met Samuel Herd and Ted Jaracz more than a decade ago at Morning Worship at Bethel just before they also went to the Annual Meeting. She said they are so humble. My late Dad met them too.

    Humility involves recognising where you have been wrong. Even with all of the world authorities pointing out their errors in the handling of child abuse, the society has never admitted that they were wrong.

    I sadly think that answers the question

    Yes Ted Jaracz was a very humble man even in the face of satanic opposition!!

    How humble is anyone who has never said I'm sorry?

    As VI said No & Yes , and as tepid ..says how humble is anyone who has never said I`m sorry ( in over 100 years of lording it over their flock ) with wrong prophecys ,wrong Holy Spirit directions ,wrong directions from the enthroned King Christ Jesus since 1914

    I hate to think what Paradise is going to be like with an incompetent Jesus Christ as King and the 144000 JW`s as his King priests.

    lamalcool - certainly they picked up some social skills somewhere and can be on stage/nice when meeting witnesses. They have to act with humility at times to insure their position/lifestyle.
