Can anyone out there in cyberland explain how a woman being raped by her dentist (becoming pregnant in the process), and then the "elders" of her congregation disefellowshipping her for (I would imagine fornication & lying about it), how this can be seen as refinement????
if a person gets a disease (say cancer) whatever, and then they go through hell but they beat it...I can at least see how this could be seen as refining, because then the person may appreciate their family more, appreciate friends, everything in life that is good more, and then becomes a better person because of it.
But how the hell does a woman being put through the situation mentioned, how can that possibly be seen as refinement? refinement for what? to be refined in remembering that the people telling you that god speaks directly to them are lying to you? to help remind you not to take everything that is said from the GB seriously?
please i'm not trying to be sarcastic, if someone knows, i really would also like to know also.
