How's this for hypocrisy? This weeks "bible study" mentioned how Jeehoober is loyal to the superlative degree!! ( WTF?? Who talks like that?) Anyway, the point was made that Jeehobo INSTANTLY forgives repentant sinners! He doesn't hold your past sins against you!
HUH?!?!?! So if you DA or get DF'd and are repentant you should be forgiven instantly by the Elders. This is what they believe, or claim to believe. Of course they have to get all Pharisaic and decide FOR YOU what constitutes works that befit repentance.
Should people even get DF'd at all??? I say, "NO!!" DONT even confess to the Eldubs.....ever!!! It's a scam! You willingly surrender yourself to their process when you give them power over you. STOP DOING IT!
If there is a GOD, confess to them if you feel the need. That's where it ends.
For those of you wondering about how the WTBTS should handle or could possibly handle pedophiles, without the confession system, that's easy. A child comes forward, you report it to the Superior Authorities. Jeehoober can forgive the sinner, but they must pay any crime.
Go see them in prison and remind them that Jeehoober forgives them.
