Who is the “Faithful and Discreet Slave”?

A Mini-Survey

Time for some fun and a little friendly debate…

We want your opinion on this confusing subject:

Just who exactly is the “faithful and discreet slave” described in Matthew 24:45-47 that reads: “Who really is the faithful and discreet slave whom his master appointed over his domestics, to give them their food at the proper time? Happy is that slave if his master on arriving finds him doing so. Truly I say to you, He will appoint him over all his belongings.”

So tell us what you think or how you understand this Watchtower teaching. Let do it in two steps:

  1. Simply answer the poll below that is based on common descriptions of the FDS as taught by the Watchtower Society and as understood (or misunderstood) by most Jehovah’s Witnesses. Let us know what you think.
  2. After you take the poll, feel free to share your opinion and/or comments in the discussion section below.

    By this survey and the % of results….IT IS PROOF…..that little to “none” of the ones that profess to be a JW really knows anything about the “Truth” and how it bacame? How could that be? My GrandFather personally knew Rutherford and Knorr and they knew him as he Spread the GoodNews Across Canada WITH a loudspeaker on his roof! Anyway…..I am truly amazed as some of the answers…and further PROOF that the JW’s are kept in the Dark Intentionally!
    Just Sayin….Facts are Facts!
