The statement in the article "Who is Leading Gods People Today?" in the Feb 17th study edition of the WT is VERY interesting.
It states: ""The G.B. is neither inspired nor infallible" ..we can err .in Doctrinal matters...."
Smiddy started a topic on that and it is an interesting thread.
But thinking about it, why would they ever say this? As a faded person for the last 4 years I have been using this very reason as to why I am faded because I conclude that the GB are not in any way directed or inspired.
The reason why they must be saying this is to prepare the dubs for MAJOR doctrinal changes. We have all said in the past that the doctrines of 1914, the anointed on earth, disfellowshipping, blood etc have to change at some point in the near future.
Thus, has the groundwork now been laird for this? If they can say they err on doctrines and then 6 months later change the fact that 1914 is not a special biblical date then the dubs will not be so upset.
I am seriously considering going to the meeting when they discuss the above WT to see how people react to it.
It is a game changer, if they can say that, and then change major doctrines AND STILL get them to believe it is "the truth" then the GB will be very happy with that.
