    Ok heres latest at kh .I have a friend of mine who is df but trying to get reinstated i know you may ask why but its a free country anyway he is a frienldly chap and likes to say hello to old friends. HE does his hellos very discreetly not makeing a scene. Well the elders have noticed him saying hello to people at hall so they invited him in back room. It started out we are glad to see you seth but we have noticed you greeting the friends then they read 2john 10,11 and said if they greet you back they are a sharer in your wicked works, he replied matt 7:12 tells me different,they reply would it not be loveing to tell people you are df he said matt 7:12 have good night bros. Then i got to thinking why dont they revise the verse to say he who says hello to him is a sharer in wicked deeds. WOW I GOT MORE STORIES LATER.

    Well, if he really wants to get reinstated, he better STFU! This is seen as disobedience to God's Word and a sign of rebellion against the "Lords".

    You can't take crap from the elders, they only have power you give them, ask them just where in the scriptures it gives them the right to talk with disfellowshipped ones?

    He just pushed back his reinstatement by at least a year, probably much longer.

    He doesnt care about reinstatment he cares about showing love.

    There was this elder who would stand at the back of the KH so he could keep an eye

    on a DF person. He would watch every move, and if someone tried sharing their song book

    with the DF person he would move in and make a big scene. Sister will you please move away.

    What a ass.......

    Elders derive their power from those that give it to them.

    No acknowledgement. No power.

    In this instance I like to quote the Godfather III where Michael sends Calo to kill Lucchesi. Right before he kills him, he whispers in his ear......"Power wears out those who don't have it."

    Instead of mentioning Matt 7:12 he should of just had them backup a couple of verse in 2 john where it's talking about not believing Christ is real so unless he's a non beliver it doesn't apply.

    In that case, he did fine then...

    If he cared about reinstatement he did not do ok.

    More power to him if he just wants to ruffle the elders feathers - he did!

    When I started to attend some meetings I would always sit in the back. I was just more comfortable sitting in the back. Maybe they all thought I was df'd and trying to get back in. Several times I said hello or good morning to some and they didn't answer me. I thought they all were so unfriendly.
