The final witness giving testimony was Grant Suiter, Secretary-Treasurer of The Watch Tower Society, and he offered these statements of official position:
Q. What is the position of a Company Servant in that respect?
must have met the qualifications that have been previously testified to, of maturity and understanding and spiritual understanding, and in ability to read the Congregation.He
must have that training previously mentioned in the Theocratic Ministry School
, be a leader in the field ministry itself, be apt to teach, and otherwise have qualifications that the Scriptures laid down.
affirmed that "Man cannot lay down qualifications that the Scriptures do not."Yet his
own testimony, as well as that of the two other officials, is that "only by the Watch Tower Society's
publications can anyone have a right understanding of Scripture."Though false prophecy was advanced, "absolute acceptance [of such] as Truth was imposed upon all Jehovah's Witnesses at the time," and he firmly declares this imposition to be right.Suiter
asserts that "the overall result is what is important," hence the organization should not be judged adversely because they promulgated errors on "incidental points" as long as the "main thing, the worship of Jehovah God" was conveyed.It would be unfair to equate the importance of those errors with the main message."There is no comparison," Suiter
...But as the above testimony from Fred Franz, Hayden Covington and Grant Suiter proves, the Society requires Witnesses to subscribe to: "The Society, may it always be in the right; but The Society, right or wrong!"
