Many of you said you were asked by the elders 'who you were asscociating with', and did you believe this was God's org' etc.
My question is.....did they have A REASON for asking you this ....such as seeing you doing something anti-dublike, or hanging with wordly people.....OR did they just ask this out of the blue?
When hubby and I were asked questions about the "org" it was totally out of the blue. An elder and a MS in training stopped by one afternoon. This elder is our age, thought he was a good guy (now we know he's totally an "org" man). When I asked why he was asking us these questions he said that there were "apostates" right in our own territory, and they had kids too!!! **gasp**
We hadn't been seen doing anything or associating with df'd or "worldly" people. We were just doing the fade.
Every effort is made to help wrongdoers. But if they are unrepentant, the congregation needs to be protected from their influence.
This statement is false! My brother went to the elders and confessed his wrongdoing. Nobody else in the hall knew about what he did (the girl was non JW), he was 16 at the time, overcome with guilt and was repentant. If he didn't go to the elders they would have never known what he did. He was df'd. There was no effort made to help him.
Just goes to show you you can't trust what's on the internet!! ;-)
