I'm unsure if this has actually been discussed before, but I often wondered about the process of disfellowshipping. I know a lot here have been affected by it for many different reasons. I'm writing this from the perspective that some who read this believe in the bible as gods word and that Jesus words and teachings are what they are trying to emulate.
The WTS process is primarily to hold a judicial committee overseen by at least 3 elders in a closed room and the final decision is made by them.
Matthew 18: 15-17 15 “Moreover, if your brother commits a sin, go lay bare his fault between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he does not listen, take along with you one or two more, in order that at the mouth of two or three witnesses every matter may be established. 17 If he does not listen to them, speak to the congregation. If he does not listen even to the congregation, let him be to you just as a man of the nations and as a tax collector.
As you can see these words are attributed to JESUS himself. Here he clearly lays out how to treat someone who sins. As you can see, according to JESUS the final decision rests with the congregation, not 3 men in a closed room. The whole congregation gets to hear the sin and the congregation gets their input and decide.
How the WTS get away with their completely unscriptural process of disfellowshipping is unbelievable. Any JW who can defend the WTS on this matter goes against the words of JESUS himself who is Head of the congregation as layed out in the bible.
Shame, shame, shame on you.
