    Splash - "JWs have to label everything as 'apostate'..."

    Sure seems like it's going that way, lately.

    That's gotta be awkward...

    ...HTF do you preach to anyone when - for all intents and purposes - you have no choice but to classify the whole world as something you can't look at or talk to?

    Maybe they think they can phase out the witness work (to avoid anything that contradicts "The Truth") by telling the R&F that it's finally coming to a close. There's probably dutiful JWs who'd be fine with it. :smirk:

    Shunning? Ashamed? Are you freaking serious?

    Look up the faq on if jws shun former members of their religion and look at the mental gymastics performed to try to make the answer appear to be "no" if family members. You're an idiot if don't see the deceit they use on non jws by making them think "don't worry if your family is studying, if any of you leave you'll always be family and normal family relationships remain". Then once fully in its "don't even email your sick mother!!"

    Forget the FAQ. I linked one better. I posted a link a video at convention the public was invited to attend, which advocated shunning, of a daugter, who was shunned for 15 years. That video is on the website as well, publicly available.

    The videos does a better job because it allowes visualization of it.

    A 2017 WT, available on the website, said shunning applies to family.

    Doubter Forget the FAQ.... You're wrong.

    Lol. So we have to forget the official FAQ which has been carefully worded by WT to inform the public? Only by ignoring this information on their website from God's chosen channel does it serve your lying agenda.

    Where are the public most likely to get their information from, the website that they are automatically referred to for every question they ever ask, or a 99% JW only convention where outsiders are followed under suspicion?

    Make of that what you will, but take a good look at yourself and ask why you're being so deceitful - you're only fooling yourself.

    You can’t make any excuses, even though you’re trying really hard to.

    Ah Doubter, Doubter, Doubter ...

    See how your leaders speak out of both sides of their mouth?

    To the emotionally trapped it's shun shun shun. To the onlooking world it's look how fair and reasonable we are.

    Whitewashed graves is what they are. Wordy inscriptions on white paint on the outside but inside full of rotten bones and putrefying flesh.

    Just like your masters you lyingly defend their disgusting, lying behaviour.

    Someone stated, and Minnie the repeated that the Lydia is “constantly hounding the WT”.

    Show me please, where this “hounding“ is taking place. From my perspective, the media usually doesn’t give a rats ass about WT. It just, or they just, are NOT news worthy“.

    IOW no one gives a shit about WT/JWs.

    Doubter You can’t make any excuses, even though you’re trying really hard to.

    Lol. What a vacuous and pointless diversion.

    Like the WT overlords that you blindly obey, you have no substance. You don't explain, you contrive. You don't answer, you misdirect. You don't have intellectual honesty, you selectively quote whichever of WT's two faces best fits your agenda.

    When you are reduced to ignoring facts, crafty wording and outright lies, I think it's time to crawl back to your televangelists to listen to them beg for even more money and blind obedience.

    What a joke lol.

    What of a man who is disfellowshipped but whose wife and children are still Jehovah’s Witnesses? The religious ties he had with his family change, but blood ties remain. The marriage relationship and normal family affections and dealings continue.
    If a fellow Christian or a loved one displays poor judgment, your showing restraint similar to that of Joseph might help you to avoid an impulsive reaction. (Prov. 16:32; 17:27) If you have disfellowshipped relatives, you may need to control your feelings in order to avoid unnecessary contact with them. Self-restraint in such situations is not automatic, yet it is easier if we realize that our actions are in line with God’s example and in harmony with his counsel.

    Doubter, do you see a difference in the two quotes above? Do they give you the exact same impression?
