My friend, who is not yet baptised in the WT, but is well on her way and very defensive of the WT, kind of led me into a conversation about how there has to be two witnesses for immoral acts, etc....(I guess someone recently got caught with another guy's wife, and it took a little detective work, because there has to be 2 witnesses.) I brought up child molestors. What does the WT do in those cases? And what kind of back-ground checks do they do, in order that they aren't sending offender to the doors of single women with children? Of course, she sent me all the Scriptures about how you can only accuse someone when there are 2 witnesses. I thought this would be a good topic to maybe open her eyes a little, because she was a victim of a molestor and I guarantee there were not 2 witnesses! Do you have any good "reasonable" questions that I could use as a come-back to the 2-witness defense? Especially in child abuse cases?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
