What do you say? I say yes. Since they are appointed directly by Jehovah GOD'S holy spirit they are an extension of Jehovah. They are the arm of Jehovah GOD. When my mentally ill sister murdered our mother, our father was a wreck and the elders singlehandedly held our family together. I realize this is a loaded question, but that's ok.
ihv okkkk so how do we know they were appointed by "jehovah"??/

Elders aren't even decent fathers to their children.
They are insecure, pompous ignorant idiots.
Anyone who goes to them for any support or advice will only end up in harms way.
They are NOT appointed by any sort of god, OR the JW evil troll named "jehovah".
They are only appointed because the cult is very hard up for men.
So basically if you are 18, have a penis and are willing to recite wBTS propaganda written for you on a podium, bam you are "appointed" an elder.
Many of these creeps have criminal records including sexual predators, and most are mentally/emotionally ill and take medications for such.
NONE are trained or educated.
Sad that brainwashed followers of the Jehovah's Witness cult actually believe they are some sort of "clergy" or leaders.
