Disfellowshipped people are dead people?

    I think we should all pay them a visit:

    Basically it was a claim that a GB member had stated that associating with a disfellowshipped person was akin to sleeping next to a corpse.

    Basically listening to anything that a GB member has to say these days is akin to being "brain dead". IMHO

    If you follow their stupid advise commands on medical treatment, you will likely become a sleeping corpse.

    just saying!

    Didn't that freak show Lett not say something similar in the March broadcast?

    P.E. ewwwhhhh...what the?

    And Blonde my undead worldly vampire spouse is the best time I've ever had!!

    And I agree with village , how awesome ... all us corpses haunt the Warwick place on Halloween with a zombie sit in...(btw, the name eerily the name reminds me of Bewitched for some reason....)

    The mental disease is theirs (GB) for comparing honest people (who disagree with psycho policies) to people deserving death or the death of a non jw loved one. What sickos for wishing that on someone and boasting on that for any reason

    It's worse than being dead.; at least people generally do not speak ill of the dead.

    Good god I've not even heard of that horrible punishment let alone heard a 'true Christian' use it in a talk. Do they read books about medieval tortures to find allegories and metaphors for their talks. Revolting! What's wrong with these people!

    This thread is distorting the picture of gods holy organisation in the public and especially distorting the image of the governing body. Never from the mouth of such lovely men! such a phrase no! I

    Anyhow, I am not dead, because in my case at least, I am not allowing it. If I would meet any of the GB It would be hard for them not to greet me. Because I am a very pro-active person. I can say, pratically any of JW i meet in the supermarket or on a street I am greeting and saying hello. Also with a little bit irony in my mind. And the most I meet greet also. They know that I am a very social person. Some invite me to the hall, some say only a short hello, and with may I ve small talks, in the street, in the supermarkets in my town. I am living inmidst of shops really here. They know that I was a "pattern-witness" when I was young and I was only DFshpped because I married a woman from an other religion. The content of the small talk depends of course of whom i meet, a former presiding overseer or another elder, or the overseer who was responsible for visiting disfellowshipped, or "only" former mates or friends. Of course some petulant would never say any word or greet.

    They are treating me like a weak one, very long inactive one, disappeared from the congregation person but not completly like a DFsd, i have the feeling, one even winking and smiling.

    I am not allowing them at least to treat me as dead. Its because I meet some often, I am not looking away, am not passing by without greeting.

    One of the local elders instructed the attendants not to include df'd people in their count of the attendance for meetings. His reasoning was that they were dead, so how could they be counted?

    stillin - and what if the df'ed was on the way of repentance?

    DFed but working their way back to being undead aka zombies.
