Wow, I have encountered many odd rules, among them are the following:
If you are either privately or publically reproved or also disfellowshipped, you can't be appointed a ministerial servant until three years has expired from the time you were reinstated. Hmmm, I guess Peter denying Christ three times, then leading the ministy shortly after his resurrection meant they didnt abide by the 3-year rule back in the first century.
If you divorce your mate for something other than adultery, you are technically still married and unable to date another. However, if you were to have sexual relations with your now divorced mate, you could get disfellowshipped for fornication, given you are no longer "legally" married....huh???????
I always thought it was rather odd when sisters would divorce their mate for something other than adultery...hold out on any sexual activity with their now divorced rape, then occasionally call and ask "Am I scripturally free yet?" Meaning, has the former mate had intimate relations with another. When this occurs, then the sister or brother, is now free to pursue another, given they now have grounds for a biblical divorce. huh??????????
