    The WTS says that under the Law, their were capital crimes that people were put to death for. They say that it is for similar crimes that jws are df'd for. So as the Jews could not talk to executed people, dead, df'd people are as good as dead, can't talk to dead people.

    That's right, you got it. If you are a baptized witness you can greet and talk to anyone on earth including axe murderers and pedophiles but you cannot talk to disfellowshipped JWs.

    In my old congro there is an elder who is a child rapest. ..apparently he's worthy of double honer while anyone d.fed is as good as dead. Go figure

    Correct, once that newly interested person walks into a Kingdom Hall they require love bombing. The dfd person is a life threatening danger.

    The problem with that reasoning Blondie is if you use this idea of the mosaic law parallel it's not exact ie a thief under the law or a fornication did not Merriit death penalty whereas under Christian arrangmrnt you are df for both sins.

    So basically 4 sins death penalty encouraging others to worship false gods adultery bearing false witness rebelling against your parents.

    There's nothing to help you on, other than send the WT to hell and do what you feel it's morally right.

    You must remember that the org's teachings on "God's" laws state that they are zip/postcode applicable.

    If the d/f'd person lives at your address, "God's" shunning law doesn't apply to you. If the person moves out into a house across the street, then you must treat them as "dead."

    Two tier laws to match their two-tier Christians.
