According to the org-book that all Jw have in their cubboard somewhere .. it says on page 149 and 150 based on 2 Thess 3:6,14,15 - if someone is not obedient to our word....
So, it is not neccesary to be engaged in DF-ing offenses, (I'm not sure about the actual English translation but in Dutch it says: grove minachting voor theocratische orde) but showing the outward signs of "gross contempt for theocratic order" and the elders have warned several times ... and the person involved does not listen (showing a brazen attitude) such a person can be marked.
Note the last 2 years of GB exaltations and pushes for thoughtless obedience to the chain of command.......
On page 155 it deals with Da-ing. DA-ing is a matter of a person taking "the right" action, not neccesarily in writing. Note that inactive ones are being offered help. ...Now what happens if this help is being turned down time and again and is indicative of a brazen attitude?
Then there is talk about a person who renounces the faith or who willingly and knowingly turns it's back on the worship of Jehovah. (what does the worship of Jehovah entail? Ah ... yes ...)
Associating with those who are disapproved by God automatically puts such a person in the DA-ed position. Of course one can argue what associating means but .... this is what happens online all the time.Engaging in debate, exchanges of viewpoints, interaction and communication.
Becoming a member of an organisation with objectives contrary to the bible and condemned by God. Well ... this board clearly is an organisation everyone on here has become a member of. And as we all know ... the phrase contrary to the bible and condemned by God simply means contrary to the objectives of the WBTS and therefore condemned.
The way these pages are phrased, there seems to be ample room to mass DA everyone here on this board in one swift stroke.The only thing that would keep them is: who are you exactly / where are you exactly.
