The Governing Body now claims that they as a group now
occupy the role of the "faithful and discreet slave”, but this new teaching
will be hard to explain
Reports are emerging of an announcement at the 128th Annual
Meeting of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania that
the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses now considers itself to be the
Faithful and Discreet Slave Class of Matthew 24:45 in its entirety.
Previously it was understood
that the Governing Body were merely humble "representatives” of the "Slave
Class”, which comprised the 12,000 or more anointed remnant of Christians with
a heavenly calling still on earth. Despite claiming to be "representatives” of
this group of people, suspicions were raised in the minds of many thinking
Witnesses after reading articles such as the Questions From Readers of the August 15th 2011 Watchtower, where
it was admitted that the Governing Body has no actual communication with
memorial partakers (the "anointed”) and even feels that some of these ones may
be mentally imbalanced. (see w11 8/15 p. 22)
Many have predicted that, at some point
in the future, the Governing Body would end this confusion by claiming that
they themselves are the Faithful and Discreet Slave, with the anointed remnant
playing no special role. According to numerous reports this has finally happened.
However, this remarkable claim opens a labyrinth of fresh doctrinal puzzles
that future publications must now attempt to explain.
