Before setting out the eight relevant factors, he commented: In determining the public-private issue, all of the circumstances must be weighed…There are a number of relevant factors relevant to the determination whether a matter is coloured with a public element, flavour or character sufficient to bring it within the purview of public law.

It is quite clear to me that Stratas J. The difficulty with Rowe J.

Acts Admittedly, the Scriptural standards for Christian overseers are high, since these men have the serious responsibilities of taking the lead in Jehovah's worship and of being exemplary in Christian conduct.

The high standards call for those appointed as elders to be good examples in the congregation. It should be obvious to all that the overseers are individuals who apply Bible counsel in the affairs of life. The apostle Paul set out in his first letter to Timothy and his letter to Titus the basic Scriptural requirements for overseers.

At 1 Timothy , we read: "If any man is reaching out for an office of overseer, he is desirous of a fine work. The overseer should therefore be irreprehensible, a husband of one wife, moderate in habits, sound in mind, orderly, hospitable, qualified to teach, not a drunken brawler, not a smiter, but reasonable, not belligerent, not a lover of money, a man presiding over his own household in a fine manner, having children in subjection with all seriousness; if indeed any man does not know how to preside over his own household, how will he take care of God's congregation?

Moreover, he should also have a fine testimony from people on the outside, in order Organized to Do Jehovahs Will Page 29 that he might not fall into reproach and a snare of the Devil. For an overseer must be free from accusation as God's steward, not self-willed, not prone to wrath, not a drunken brawler, not a smiter, not greedy of dishonest gain, but hospitable, a lover of goodness, sound in mind, righteous, loyal, self-controlled, holding firmly to the faithful word as respects his art of teaching, that he may be able both to exhort by the teaching that is healthful and to reprove those who contradict.

Other Bible writers discuss additional Christian qualities required of men appointed as overseers, or shepherds, of the congregation. Although the Scriptural requirements may at first seem to be somewhat overwhelming, there should be no reason for Christian men to shy away from desiring the fine work associated with the office of overseer.

By taking the lead in manifesting fine Christian qualities, overseers encourage other members of the congregation to do the same.

This is indicated by what the apostle Paul wrote in describing how "gifts in men" are provided "with a view to the readjustment of the holy ones, for ministerial work, for the building up of the body of the Christ, until we all attain to the oneness in the faith and in the accurate Organized to Do Jehovahs Will Page 30 knowledge of the Son of God, to a full-grown man, to the measure of stature that belongs to the fullness of the Christ.

Paul instructed Timothy and Titus to appoint qualified men in the congregation to serve as overseers. They would not be mere boys or newly converted men, "but they would be individuals with experience in Christian living, reflecting a broad knowledge of the Bible, a deep understanding of it, and a genuine love for the congregation.

The overseers would be individuals who have the courage to speak up when wrongdoing exists and to take the needed action to correct it, thus protecting the flock from any who would selfishly exploit them. Their overall way of life would show this.

Those qualifying for appointment as overseers of the flock of God would be demonstrating a measure of practical wisdom in their daily lives. If married, they would be adhering to the Christian standard for marriage, namely, husband of one wife, and would be presiding over their own household in a fine manner.

If the overseer has believing children who are in subjection with all seriousness and are not under a charge of debauchery nor unruly, other members of the congregation could confidently approach the overseer for counsel and advice on a wide range of personal matters having to do with family life and Christian living.

Having conducted themselves properly within the family arrangement as well as within the community Organized to Do Jehovahs Will Page 31 in general, these men would also be irreprehensible, be free from accusation, and have a fine testimony even from people on the outside. No valid charge of improper conduct could be brought against them to mar the reputation of the congregation.

They would not have been reproved recently for serious wrongdoing. Others in the congregation would be moved to imitate this fine example and entrust their spiritual life to the shepherds' care.

Such qualified men would be able to serve the Christian congregation in a role similar to that of the older men of Israel who were described as "wise and discreet and experienced. Their blamelessness would give them freeness of speech before the congregation. Men qualifying for appointment as overseers would display moderation in personal habits and in their dealings with others.

They would not be fanatics, but their way of life would be characterized by balance, orderliness, and self-control. Moderation would be demonstrated in such things as eating, drinking, recreation, hobbies, and entertainment. They would be moderate in the use of alcoholic beverages so as not to leave themselves open to charges of drunkenness or of being a drunken brawler. One whose senses have been dulled by intoxicating drink easily loses self-control and is not in a position to watch over the spiritual interests of the congregation.

Exercising oversight of the affairs of the congregation requires a man to demonstrate a measure of or- Organized to Do Jehovahs Will Page 32 derliness, being systematic in life, habits, and work. This includes his personal appearance, his home, and his personal activities. Such a man avoids procrastination, and he is able to see what is required and to plan accordingly. He adheres to theocratic order. An overseer must be reasonable.

He must be able to work in unity with and cooperate with others within the body of older men, who are charged with the oversight of the congregation. He should have a proper view of himself in relation to others, both inside and outside the congregation.

As a reasonable person, the overseer would not be opinionated, always considering his views as superior to those of his fellow elders. Others may excel in qualities or abilities that he may lack. Reasonableness comes as a result of basing one's conclusions solidly on the Scriptures and of striving to imitate the example of Jesus Christ.

He would not be self-willed, always insisting that his way or his point of view must be accepted as best. He would not be prone to wrath but would be peaceable in his dealings with others. Similarly, one qualifying to serve as an overseer in the congregation should be sound in mind.

This means that he should have a good comprehension of Jehovah's principles and their application. Put differently yet again, if I subsequently reject the premise of Q2, would that affect my position on Q1? Does rejection of one imply rejection of the other?

Can one not simply abort Q2 and thus leave the organisation without it being correctly stated that one is in fact leaving Jehovah; but that, more accurately, one is simply leaving the organisation that confidently claims exclusivity with said Jehovah? One is then said to be breaking their vow to Jehovah; the alleged vow-breaker is then viewed as having overtly gone AWOL. Suffice is say that the guy who crafted these two questions had a legal mind — he thought it through.

Happy is that if his master on arriving finds him doing so! Truly I say to you, He will appoint him over all his belongings. About the author: Clement Mabunda Former Jehovah's Witness, from South Africa; he was baptised in and he disassociated himself in At noon attendees walked around with plastic Walmart bags filled with food.

They look to "the faithful and discreet slave" for spiritual food at the proper time.

But his group endured and grew. The problem is that neither of these accounts has any requirement for the number of hours preached, nor for an amount of literature placed, etc. The overseers would be individuals who have the courage to speak up when wrongdoing exists and to take the needed action to correct it, thus protecting the flock from any who would selfishly exploit them.

To find out why--this book is a must-read. Over time they became less confrontational and blended into the fabric of American life. Since following Watchtower corporate policy tends to make people less caring and concerned for others, such individuals tend to become elders.
