Why do Jehovah's Witnesses Obey their Governing Body, instead of God as "Ruler".... aren't they just "men"?

They say they don't obey men as ruler, but only God...but their Governing Body can tell them to hate others, ignore all other literature, tell "theocratic warfare" lies, protect pedophiles, and tell their elders to judge their flock members, all of these things not in the Bible, and the members do it... show more They say they don't obey men as ruler, but only God...but their Governing Body can tell them to hate others, ignore all other literature, tell "theocratic warfare" lies, protect pedophiles, and tell their elders to judge their flock members, all of these things not in the Bible, and the members do it without question...Why do Jehovah's Witnesses obey men as ruler, instead of God?
Update: No QA Queen...there are many things that emanate from the Bible that all religions teach, that are also quoted as from God, but the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses twists dates to support their false 1914 date.

They directed their publishers to claim that certain scholars backed up their 607 BCE date for the distraction of Jerusalem, when in fact, those scholars refuted the Watchtower statements, and quotes as pure lies.

With only 7.6 million members, the GB is selling off more and more of their New York properties, while they are being dissected in the literary field as mis-representers of scholarly claims. It is also interesting to note, there are 607 scholars that refute 607 BCE, and have made it very clear that the date of 586-7 is the only true date of the destruction of Jerusalem.

Is this your interpretation of obeying God?



You all obey Men as ruler.
Update 3: Love Doctor, when you lose children, and family to false doctrines, you will look silly also.
