Question for Jehovah's Witnesses: Equal?

Jehovah's Witnesses are taught that Jesus, the Son, is not co-equal and co-eternal with the Father. The Governing Body get this teaching from Arianism, a Christian heresy. They do not get this teaching from the Bible (see Psalm 90:2, Hebrews 9:14 and Revelation 22:13).

However, the Watch Tower Society publish doctrine from the Governing Body that suggests that Jehovah's Witnesses are to believe that Jesus is equal with someone.

    "Rather, he has complete confidence in the truth as it is revealed by Jehovah God through his Son, Jesus Christ, and "the faithful and discreet slave."" Watchtower 2001 Aug 1 p.14 
What is this text suggesting? The Jesus and the "faithful and discreet slave" are used by Jehovah God to reveal truth.*

Therefore, my question for Jehovah's Witnesses; why is it when the Bible describes Jesus as the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth, the possessor of the "name above every name", the one to whom every knee in heaven and earth will bend, and the one who became our sin so that we can have his righteousness, does the Governing Body put itself in an equal position with Him?

* This truth is subject to change.
