Is the New Light from JW pretty much brought their leadership inline to something very much like the POPE is in the catholic faith?

when you consolidate power from 12,000 folks down to 8 Guys BOUNCING ALL FEMALES out of the equation all together-

are we seeing the JW version of the Pope?

The information pertaining to the faithful and discreet slave in Matthew 24:45-47 announced at the 128th Annual Meeting of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society simply stated the Watchtower writing committee and the administrative position of Jehovah's Organization (governing body) comprises the faithful and discreet slave, the entity that dispenses spiritual guidance to the overall membership of Jehovah's Witnesses.

“Who really is the faithful and discreet slave whom his master appointed over his domestics, to give them their food at the proper time?

This has always been the case, so this is simply a clarification of what is commonly understood. It was by no means stated that the governing body in itself is the “faithful and discreet slave.”

Most members of the anointed remnant are quite old. Some don't even reside at Bethel or any of the branch offices. There are those of the anointed that participate in the Watchtower writing committee and there are those that are not of the anointed.

The governing body does even have the human capacity to single handedly assume the role of the faithful and discreet slave.

Clarification: The governing body DOESN'T even have the human capacity to single handedly assume the role of the faithful and discreet slave.

each slave is judged by his own faithful assignment, not as a collective slave.

the bible shows that the GB are the ones that are screwed, and so are you for believing men over Gods word.

The pope is considered infallible only when he is setting doctrine.

The gb are the "fds" only when they are setting doctrine.

Yep, sounds like a pope to me.

Wow, have you been given powers of judging? Did Christ personally choose you for this position?

The day I believe in this is when they start carrying a big pagan cross around and they fit in a popemoblie.

Either way, as far as which gareth is here, so far, he hasn't argued against the statement that the gb have become the new "pope".

The GB has always been based on the Pope and consumed with jealousy that they do not have the same power.
Illustrations of the Pope and Satan shaking hands in their propaganda?
Come on!
JWs take it one step further but ousting any member who even questions the GB or anything it vomits.
Catholics can speak out and disagree with the Pope and still be Catholics and welcome at Mass and the Church is always open to all.
That is what separates fanatical cults like the Jehovah's Witnesses and legitimate religions and faith like Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, etc.

Flapping your gums doesn't change anything so get back up on the porch and pay attention.

Why do you emphasize this? Do you think anointed sisters care?

Anointed sisters don't care about ruling or power or titles. That's a man thing.

All anointed sisters want is to love and be loved by Jehovah and Jesus :-)
