An elder left a paper at my door
Since the last 6 weeks, the elders are trying to get a hold of me, but I specialize in being invisible. So now they left a little paper at my door asking that I call elder X so that he can talk to me.
Do you think I should keep on avoiding them since they are about to end their 3 month call on inactive ones? I rather fade away forever than meet with them.
You are under NO OBLIGATION WHATSOEVER to do their bidding. They will disfellowship you in absentia when they finally get the message that you will not properly "respect their authority."
They mean nothing. Help them grasp that critical concept.
Well you could leave a little paper at the elders door. What you write on it is your choice.
Outoftheorg of the aah screw them class.
You asking that question implies that you owe them an explanation for your activities.
If you don't want to talk to them...why even bother reading the note.
IMO, I would view that piece of paper like any other unsolicted sales material - Trash! What obligation do you have to respond to their command/summons? I'ts their arrogance and covering their ass that they think this way.
Whatever you decide, best wishes and take care. my 2 cents
All of the above, plus, if they ever ask about the note, deny that you saw it, or had any knowledge of it. Lying, yes, but very justified, i would say. It's a bit like 'spiritual warfare' ;)
I agree, you're under no obligation to call.
JH, what paper? You never recieved any paper at your door. The wind must have blew the little sucker away, right?
minimus, I was reading down the responses, formulating my own, and there is was, you said it.

JH, what cheap bastards! Couldn't even spend a few bucks to send it registered.
