I would say that most apostles will have money. There are exceptions, though fewer and fewer as the Church grows. Even today, many of our apostles are not wealthy, but are comfortable. President Monson has almost always worked in the Church, so basically lives on a stipend given him, plus revenues from the few books he's written, and salary for being on a few boards of companies (mostly Church related). Elder Packer was a college professor, not a wealth creating job.
Of the earliest apostles, none were rich. Some were not educated (like Heber C Kimball). K'aya K'ama, Gerald/gary Smith gszion1 @juno.com http://www .geocities.com/rameumptom/index.html "No one is as hopelessly enslaved as the person who thinks he's free." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Paul: Right. And your "ALSO" points out that the money is required in order to get those high callings of Stake President and up. Thank you for making my point, Gary. The Lord will not call a poor man to be an apostle. Poor people are just not good enough for the job. You have to have money.
