    On youtube there is this man who recorded is judicial commitee, the point I am making is that the elders viewed his material on youtube as stated on the recording.

    My question his are elders allowed to view apostate material but not non-elders? When did this happen?!

    From what I understand, anyone is allowed to read material that is critical of the organization as long as they do not promote the material to other members. Promoting critical material to other members is a disfellowshipping offense--not reading it for yourself.

    If you read apostate material, you are in BIG trouble whether you promote it or not. If you keep reading it, you could be disfellowshipped.

    Elders are also allowed to speak to DF'd and DA'd people---the assumption is they are spiritually strong and won't be affected. Plust they will put up their cult sheild to protect themselves.

    Yes NC, it's like this, but it's emblazoned with a big bronze Watchtower... With little pyramids all around the perimeter...

    They ain't suited up, and booted up in armor as they think

    you can strip 'em down wit thier own literature all day long

    and leave 'em butt side naked

    I don't need to show them anything outside of their own material

    to prove what they are

    If they view the material for investigative purposes with a view to nailing a suspect on apostasy, sure, they can view apostate material. Otherwise it is a big no-no. You could be DFd for intentionally and repeatedly viewing it even if you never "spread" it.
