One of the elder’s schools I attended, we dealt with a person who touched a girl’s breast and covered it up and kept it secret until it was revealed through a source. The instructor first laid the ground work for a guilt trip. He read this scripture;
(Leviticus 5:1) . . .“‘Now in case a soul sins in that he has heard public cursing and he is a witness or he has seen it or has come to know of it, if he does not report it, then he must answer for his error.
Instructor said; "So as elders you have come to know of a brother who sinned and covered it up. Even if it is just touching a woman's breast, it is still unclean and Jehovah is Holy. It disgusts him. If you let this man back into the congregation and he stumbles another member, whose fault is it
It is you elders who are at fault.
The brother covered up his sin like SATAN does, and you allowed him to come back into the congregation. And the Bible makes it very clear that soul should be for soul when a person’s life is lost.
And if someone is stumbled by this brother who covers up a sin, and leaves the congregation and is destroyed in Armageddon, then it is only right for Jehovah to take your soul or the soul of one of your family members like your wife, you little girl, or your little boy.
It’s only right. It satisfies the scales of justice". Then he showed us this scripture;
Deuteronomy 19:21 Show no pity: life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
Instructor said; "So although there are no rules on when to show mercy to someone who covered up his sin, keep in mind that your life and the life of your family is at stake.
If you disfellowship that brother, then you can be sure you and your family are safe. But if you let him in, then you are playing Russian roulette with your family’s lives"
The Governing Body covered up over 1000 cases of child sexual abuse, shouldn’t they be disfellowshipped?
