There was a man who was baptized in my old hall in his mid-30s and was into everything. One day I stopped by his house and he opened the door and he was in his white saggy underwear and had this green goo all over his head, chest and legs. He had purchase on the internet this formula that would grow hair. He had lost his head hair in his 20s and had no chest or leg hair. We went to his study room and he has all kinds of books and gadgets that he had ordered on the internet. (How to learn karate in 10 day, grow 6 inches in 6 weeks, how to get beautiful women to love you, increase you IQ in a month, how to read someone’s mind, what do women really want) The guy was single.
He rose through the JW ranks quickly-pioneer, MS, elder-sub-CO.
So here is my question; is rank in the WT world a measure of gullibility. In other words, are Circuit overseers more gullible than elders, and elders more gullible than ministerial servants, and down the line?
It seems like the ones that never reached out and were hardly in field service were doing the best financially and other wise.
