THE FOUR CLASSES OF SAINTS
- Snubbed Saints
The ones who have reprofessed several times. Those in divided homes, the very poor, the widows, those with handicaps, disease, obesity, single mothers, the families with special problems. These are the forgotten ones, the ones no one invites to dinner, to sings, etc.
- So-So Saints
These are just the run of the mill, ordinary ones. They aren’t ostracized, but neither do they enjoy any privileges or attention. They notice they are left out but aren’t sure just what the reason may be. They are the main body of neglected people. They often have problems with their families leaving the church. They try hard but fail often, having little comprehension of what they believe.
- Celebrity Saints
These are the ones who by virtue of professing in only three meetings gain reputation. Or, they may be some personable, wealthy or religious person. These usually have money or status which lend credibility to the church. They also include the older fourth or fifth generation members who have workers for relatives. Newly professing people are in this category for about one year. Then, they too, join the So-So Saints. A change in status often occurs when people move from one location to another.
- Superior Saints (ROYALTY)
These have meeting or convention on their property. Or, they have influence with the head workers. Some of these families even have more influence than some of the workers. Their homes are approved for all gatherings. They are aware of many of the situations that other people never know about. They bear the brunt of most responsibility and privileges. These people are usually better able to verbalize the church beliefs than others.
