Will we ever see a janitor, a manual laborer, a machinist, a farmer, a rancher, as an apostle? To test this out - what are the current or former occupations of the apostles? Its interesting that a carpenter ended up saving mankind.

Jesus was a carpenter. Peter was a fisherman. Joseph Smith was a farmer. Brigham Young was a glazier, I believe. Throughout the history of the Church, ancient and modern, the prophets have been not only pencil pushers, but also tradesmen. If there is a temporary abundance of paper shufflers in position of leadership, it is because at this time in history that is what the Lord needs. Perhaps it will be different tomorrow. Isn't it wonderful that this is a living Church. It grows and shifts to meet the current situation.

I think that Paul is being deliberately provocative in order to stir up a discussion. I coached him while he was here. <grin>

It works pretty good, doesn't it Paul?

"Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look
at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it's made up of
two separate words - "mank" and "ind". What do these
words mean ? It's a mystery, and that's why so is
mankind." --Jack Handy
All my opinions are tentative pending further data. --JWR
