As I see it they have a guy at Bethel who mirrors Jon Lovitz' character of the liar on SNL.(Would you believe...) When he comes up with something people do not object to or make fun of-that is new light; a lie wrapped in glib words, believed by the gullible.

8 dudes in NYC come up with the new understandings when their current understandings fail to stand due to time...

Since the 1870’s, the modern Christian congregation has moved progressively toward a clearer understanding of Jehovah’s Word. Over the years, a great variety of questions have arisen calling for clear-cut answers.“The faithful and discreet slave” has provided such “food at the proper time.”

Is it restricted to 'the dudes in NYC,' to see that a current 'understanding' is failing?

Sure is.

The other members of the 'faithful and discreet slave' class have no say about doctrines.

They are being used by the Governing Body just like Rizpah, Saul's concubine whom Abner used in his attempt to gain power (2 Samuel 3:7).

GB member one: I see a light ahead, it's...new, we should print it.

GB Member two: No, wait, it's a train coming right for us. This will be disastrous!

GB Member three: Print it anyway, we'll figure something out later! All in favor?

GB Members four through 8: Aye!

I read in many places that they have tremendous influence in the governing body.Some say new light has to be put before NAMBLA board to be approved.
