Is it possible that God speaks through the faithful and discreet slave or an organization? Is it possible that only one religion understands the Bible correctly and all other interpretations are false?
The Bible does not say that a modern day 'slave' or 'slave class' exists and has the authority of God. Christians who have carefully read Matthew 24:45-51, know that the identity of the slave is unknown.
Jesus was not clear about the identity of the slave or the master. It was a parable and their were two slaves, - a faithful one and an unfaithful one. The unfaithful slave 'beats' other slaves of the master. Some people assume that Jesus was referring to himself when he spoke about 'the master', but this is not a fact. It is an assumption. It may not be what Jesus meant. True Christians do not run ahead of what Jesus taught and jump to conclusions.
When one examines Matthew:24:45-51 carefully, it becomes obvious that the parable of the faithful and unfaithful slave does not apply to 'time of the end' or our modern day. Why? Because in verse 51 Jesus says that the master will assign the unfaithful slave a 'place with the hypocrites' where there is much sadness.
Jehovah's Witnesses believe that we live in the last days of this wicked system of things and at armageddon only Jehovah's Witnesses have any scriptural hope of being saved. See the Watchtower Sept 1, 1989
If Matthew 24 45-51 refers to a time period before armageddon it would be logical to assume that the master would execute the unfaithful slave along with all the other wicked ones.

What Is Idolatry?
Idolatry is looking to a symbol such as an idol, statue, person, country, or religious institution as one's path to salvation. JW's know that 'Salvation comes from the Lord' Psalms 3:8.
