daniel 11 v32 " and those who are acting wickedly against the covenant he will lead into apostacy by means of smooth words,but as regards the people who are knowing their God they will prevail" I was showing how apostacy and wickedness are linked according to scriptures.
My reply: Dan is speaking of those who corrupt the Holy covenant by accepting the mark of the beast. Apostasy may or may not be wicked. Apostasy against the gpoverning body is delightful, since they are Satan's organization, not Gods.
Regarding the shunning why would someone NOT shun a wicked person or a df person??
My reply: Sounds like human reasoning. Again, show me Scripturally- not according to the self-serving interests of the gov body.
You said: Its for our benefit.....when i spoke to jookbeard baring in mind is not seen him since i was 4,he was constantly attacking...i didnt mind and i took it on the chin but what im saying is why would anyone want to associate with someone who never spoke about other things,work,day to day things,hobbies etc and all they did was attack Jah or his org?
My reply: The Governing body is NOT Jah's org. In light of ZDeut 18 which says not to listen to or fear a false prophet, on what basis could anyone beleive the gov body was appointed by God to handle his earthly affairs???? Speaking out against the gov body is NOT speaking out against God.
You said: Surely thats good enough reason to shun....safety.
My reply: You still have not provided one scripture.
