A few weeks ago I was told that I would be having a JC on such and such a date... I declined to attend but send a note via my mother that said;
As I was never baptized you need to leave me alone…
Baptized persons who have not associated for some time.
If you learn of serious wrongdoing on the part of such a person, the matter should be investigated if it poses a threat to the congregation's cleanness and welfare or causes a public scandal. Consider the following:
Does he still profess to be a Witness?
Is he generally recognized as such in the congregation and/or t e community?
Does the person have a measure of contact or association with the congregation so that a leavening, or corrupting, influence exists?
How did the matter become known to the elders?
Is the person willing to meet with a committee, thus admitting accountability to the Christian congregation?
Depending upon length of inactivity and other factors suggested above, elders may determine to hold the
matter in abeyance. In such a case, a record of the person's questionable conduct should be made for the congregation file so that everything noted might be clarified when the person shows interest in becoming active again.
I've not heard back from them no calls no stopping by no announcement... I wonder if this will stop them from bugging me?
