Lazy shepherds. Then they wonder "where are the sheep?"

    A guy who has come to the KH for years but never been baptized has a medical condition. The elders became aware of the fact that the man did not refuse blood for his surgery. The man consented to submit to the doctor's expertise.

    There will be no calling on that man. He is blacklisted now. What the man's stance on blood did was help the elders to write him off and have a better chance of staying home and watching football.

    Oops. I hope it was a good football game.

    " you will know my people, by the love they show amongst themselves "

    I have found the elders to be some of the most, unloving, self righteous, judgemental, human beings in the world. By definition of what a shepard is supposed to be, elders fail miserably. True shepards, are vigilant, both day and night, to protect the flock from predators. If a sheep is lost, or straying to far from the flock, they are diligantly searched for, until found. The shepards in the middle east, are/were experts at slinging stones, hence the story of David and Goliath. They will use their slings and stones, to shoot stones, with incredible precision, at all predators who endanger the flock.

    Elders will NEVER be good shepards, because, instead of protecting a sheep, when one is lost or straying, they literally "kick it out" of the flock. Through their tactics of Disfellowshipping, shunning, marking, judgeing, they show that they have NO love for any in the flock. In fact, most of the times, it is their very actions that cause the sheep to stray, stumble, and become lost.

    Can you imagine a TRUE shepard, literally throwing their sheep to the wolves? Well, elders have been doing this for many, many years, and all under the , hypocrytical, guise of love. Their time is, soon to be at its end. Their sands are circling the hourglass, and their time is over. The numbers speak for themselves, as many are now waking up, and would rather be loved, than hated, and must leave the org to find that love.

    Joe, I like to park myself in front of a good football game as much as anybody, but I don't go around posing as a pillar of strength, love and unity in the Christian Congregation.

    Dun, exactly! My child was DF'd without hesitation. There was hanky-pankh with one of the elder's kids and somebody had to pay.

    I would like to know how these elders find out so much personal medical information? Why would you even tell them you are going into the hospital or having any procedure done, especially if you are just on the edges of this religion. Maybe this will be a wake up call for him to completely drift away.

    The Elders of today are really "Lazy Shepherds" compared with yesteryear. In the 1960's a Congregation I visited regularly had the Elders visit ALL families once a month, and it was for an "interchange of encouragement", not a snooping visit or a telling off.

    My own Congregation was not quite so efficient, but in those days actually did do regular shepherding visits.

    When I left in 2008 the Congregation I had associated with for nearly forty years did not bother to visit me for 6 months or so after I stopped going, and then only because they thought they could hang a charge of "Apostasy" on me. They failed in that too, as well as failing as shepherds.
