    My brother in law, who is an elder by the way, boasts about his numerous schemes for gaining/saving/scamming monies dishonestly, but always has an excuse handy if questioned. Is generally a lazy 'bum' who does not want to work, lives on government handouts, knows all the 'entitlements' and how to get them, constantly criticizes and judges others, and has the nerve to preach about what good, upstanding christians they all are!

    He is not the only. Many that i know have become experts in screwing the government but they continue to show their love for their neighbor by going from door to door.

    Welcome Winnie! I think JW families have more disfunctional families than average. They can't get any professional counseling that doesn't point out that their problems are probably exacerbated by the WT Societies rules and guilt trips that the KH put on them. That makes a counselor an opposer of their truth and so they have to reject the very advice that could help them become a more normal family.
