Today, a sister in my congregation told me that she could never abandon me because i have been disfellowshipped. When she told me that she feels such a powerful driving force telling her she cannot leave me, it really made feel very warm and very close to her. When I told my dad, he said to me that the force compelling her is the most powerful force in the universe: Love! I dont think I have realy appreciated how much some people do care for me since being disfellowshipped.
I came home and pondered on the scriptures in 1 Corinthians 13, mainly "Love never fails" in verse 8. I realise that this organisation is very cold and UNLOVING. During my disfellowshipping, their love was not long suffering, not kind, behaved indecently, was selfish, kept account of injury, didnt understand, didnt bear all things, didnt hope all things and didnt endure all things. THEIR LOVE FAILED!
I believe they have missed the point completely. As the scripture says, you can do MANY things for Jehovah, but if you do them without love, you are NOTHING!
Just having a bit of a rant to help me get my head around stuff! :D
