In Egland we give " deserving" & " high flyers" titles.
This morning I was thinking I should have named my son PRESIDENT. I am sure it would have given him a great advantage in latter life.
So my questions:-
Do you think when a publisher becomes a " ministerial servant" or an "elder":-
a ) that this often blows up the persons " prestige"?
b) that he is then seen as someone special by many in the congregation.?
The other side I think is NOW more obvious and repugnant:-
a) how DID you feel when a person was labelled spiritual weak, or disfellowshipped?
b) how do you NOW feel about such derogatory titles?
As for myself I have concluded " titles" can have a great impact on how a person views themselfs. I however now try to look at the title as the shell of the fruit, but what is inside the fruit is what counts.
I WOULD APPRECITE, if answers are not more than five words, not less than four. :-)
