Oh dear, I recently made a comment about an elder being dogmatic. And one of his best buddies sent me a WT article to help me realign my mind or something.
This is where reality separates from fantasy and fiction. This elder believes that just because it is there in print then it automatically must be true of him and his best friend personally. How wonderful, loving and caring they all are, as they interfere in your life and spy on your dealings, which is as far removed from Christ's example as possible.
"The elders in the Christian congregation are under obligation to learn to be like Christ. Peter gave the older men, or elders, this exhortation: “Shepherd the flock of God in your care, not under compulsion, but willingly; neither for love of dishonest gain, but eagerly; neither as lording it over those who are God’s inheritance, but becoming examples to the flock.” (1 Pet. 5:1-3) Christian elders are not to be dictatorial, domineering, arbitrary, or harsh. Imitating Christ’s example, they endeavor to be loving, considerate, humble, and kind in their dealings with the sheep entrusted to their care."
