I am sure that when Israel complained against Moses, they were thinking that they were lacking good leadership.
My point is that it is easy to say that but it doesn’t make it automatically true.
Maybe the problem is that we don’t have a good membership, that is, we lack people willing to abide by the result of a vote to which they participated.
I understand that following one’s conscience is important, even vital. But at the same time we have to be careful not to use that card every time things don’t go our way.
You spoke of true leadership but I will remind you that unions, conferences or local churches never use suggestion alone when dealing with non “complying” entities. At time, they take action. So why would it be different for the GC? And if it is not good leadership when the GC is concerned, it is then not good leadership either from the unions, divisions, conferences, or local churches.
