Just wondering if anyone has a PDF of the most recent "Elder's Manual" I have a PDF of the '91 version, but I'm sure there's been plenty of New Light™ since then.
Pay Attention book.

Thanks. Just thumbing through it. This was interesting under DFing offenses:
"Celebrating false religious holidays: (Ex. 32:4-6; Jer. 7:16-19) Not all holidays directly involve false religion and require judicial action."
Never heard that before. I thought all holidays were equally bad.
"The elders do well not to involve themselves in what individual do with regard to petty gambling solely for entertainment."
You mean, a "poker night with the boys" might be okay?
Interesting. I'll have to look in more detail later.
@Shador - Having been an elder for too many years before waking up, and studying both books side by side, I can tell you that there is some interesting small differences, but mostly just an updating of policies and procedures.
There are some more rules mentioning the pervier new stuff like phone sex, internet porn, sexting, etc. Everything has been classified down to the tenth of the mint and the dill. ELders just follow it 1 2 3 4 5 6 and bingo they have a decision!
