I see you have not answered my questions as to why Jehovah allowed abuse in the past, and why He has not bothered to make sure preventive measures are in place NOW to protect the little ones and the vulnerable
I won't presumptuously speak for Jehovah (As some have had the habit of doing). But, in my opinion, I believe while we "Wait" on him to fix and heal the entire world, he expects, if not demands all Christians to be proactive in discerning and subsequently doing the right thing.
James 4:17 (Contemporary English Version)
"If you don't do what you know is right, you have sinned."
Too many Elders take the easy way out by invoking the generic JW Phrase: "Wait on Jehovah". In some situations there really is nothing else one can do. But most times, if one took the time to think outside of the box, a simple solution for a complex problem might present itself.
Elders, (with basic common sense), who slavishly apply the "Two Witness" rule to mean, “Two eye witnesses must ALWAYS be present at a rape of a child before they can DO anything”, are Sinning. Period.
Elders that have the unfortunate skill set of Marking and Ostracizing those who they simple SUSPECT of doing ANYTHING they don’t care for, surely can do the same to those who really deserve it.
