Obey the Slave Not Only in What We Think Is Important, or We Act Against Jehovah’s Purpose, 2011

We cannot be Jehovah’s friends if we do not fully obey the faithful and discreet slave. We cannot choose to obey only what WE think is important. To not obey the slave would be acting against Jehovah’s purpose. 

Prior to 2012 the teaching was that all anointed remnant were the faithful and discreet slave, from then on it has been taught that only the Governing Body are the faithful and discreet slave.
