What the fuck are you babbling on about Richard? Your scriptures prove that Jesus didn't shun. Nowhere did he refuse to talk to him. He knew what had to go down and let Judas go do it. You must be a yoga instructor with all of the stretching that you do.
As to the scripture in Corinthians, it again doesn't say what you think it does. It say not to associate with anyone calling himself a brother, but what if they no longer do? This was a huge point to me when I was waking up. I shunned my brother for over a decade before I realized that he was being perpetually punished for one act over a decade ago, and was now leading a good life. Why would I need to keep shunning him?
You brought up the example of how someone shouldn't be absolved of the consequences of their crime You love those legal comparisons. But we don't punish people forever for most crimes. Is a person that is drunk today forever a drunk? Is a fornicator today forever a fornicator? Why does Jehovah remove your errors as far off as the sunrise from the sunset but your cult keeps account forever?
I don't know why any of us bothers. There is none so blind as he who shall not see. You actually think you made a quality response to FastJehu.
In the end, this whole argument over what to do with child sexual abuse is stupid. No religion has any place sticking their nose in criminal matters. Elders should bow out as soon as the subject comes up but they can't because they are so full of themselves, like the cult they serve, that they actually feel justified in investigating the claims. That is the height of delusion. They are no more qualified to be judges than anyone. My dad was one of those elders, a know it all with no education, no emotional intelligence, who drove his own kids to literally hate him. Your cult is overstepping and that's all that matters.
