    I do remember that it is possible to use a worldly person as a witness, but the word of a baptized witness would trump whatever a worldly person says. So they can be used to corroborate a thing, but they are below even baptized female children in the ranking.

    My memory (not infallible)tells me much tbe same, Anonymous. I thoght it was something like , it may used but with caution.

    I had a look at a downloaded "Shepherd The Flock" book but could not find a mention of it now..

    Current direction SFL, Chapter 12, Para 40:

    The testimony of unbelievers and disfellowshipped or disassociated ones may also be considered, but it must be weighed carefully.

    Yes ! Just checked “ shepherd the Flock “ 2021 again at your reference and that is exactly what it says. Thank you DrearyWeather for clearing that up.
