I have heard that half of all elders are inactive. But that fewer than 5 percent of high priests are inactive. Can anyone here confirm or deny this? We have loads of inactive elders in our ward, but we have not one single inactive high priest. Is that normal? And if so, why might that be? I speculate that by the time a man is called to be a high priest he has proven that his interest in the gospel is not a temporary thing. Elders, because they are generally much younger, have not lived long enough to demonstrate by their record that they will remain active no matter what.And while I'm here, I would also add that high priest is not a higher office in the Melchizedek Priesthood, just a different office, with specialized (and temporary) responsibilities.
Of course, there are high priests that have fallen too, just not nearly as many per thousand.
