    I found this - it is totally true!

    Some (the majority) are legends in their own minds. Most (not all) have jobs that they can not advance in, due to the lack of education WT speaks against. They can only get the power and recognition within the congregation. It's the only thing that identifies them. We have seen this 1st hand in our families.

    The compassionate Elders/MS's (the minority) quickly get removed or they remove themselves. Some are stuck in and miserable.

    ToesUp - 100% correct evaluation.

    ToesUp - I may have hit dislike by accident. If so - sorry!

    I applied for a position in the company I worked for and it came down to two applicants.

    So in the final interview they told me I like the education for the job.

    I was so disappointed and confused, I was a elder and the best schooling one could get in

    theological studies that covers all, LOL.. You talk about a pompous A-hole that was me, thanks WT.

    Most Elders have 'more faces than a totem pole'.

    Most Elders have more faces, but a few were good men I must say trying to do what is right...

    I agree...most of the elders I knew were uneducated, menial laborers, and barely able to support a family. Yet they GUNNED for that elder position, and lorded it over people as if they were all VPs of a corp. Sadly...these men were Gods in the Khall (and their own minds), but were total losers outside those Khall doors! I mean, nobody respected them, they were jokes.

    It is similar to how a Frustrated father - who has no education - no career - and feels powerless outside the home - becomes a tyrant with his kids (the one place the he can have control and make him feel in power over something) and wife in the home.

    And at the Hall - these type of elders all have the same thinking "they are the hand of god to exercise judgment" not be there out of love and kindness to help.
