My beloved Religion and the Governing Body.
Note this ⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️
Taken from Rev. Ch. 10 pg. 51 par. 13. ⬇️
“As Jehovah’s Messenger and Judge, the Son of God acts rightly in identifying the modern Jezebel and throwing her into a sickbed, for her spiritual sickness is indeed a chronic one. (Malachi 3:1, 5) Those who have succumbed to this wrongful female influence will also suffer great tribulation—the sorrow of being disfellowshipped, cut off from the Christian congregation AS THOUGH DEAD.”
🔷They not only CUT YOU OFF FOR BEING DISFELLOWSHIPPED, as if you’re DEAD, but if you even SPEAK OUT OR QUESTION THE WATCHTOWER they treat you as if you’re DEAD.
But the reality is that it’s like they’re the ones that are DEAD because they’ve cut you off, chose to die…a sacrifice to their idol, jw dot org.
W81 9/15 pg. 31 par. 26 ⬇️
“Should he die WHILE DISFELLOWSHIPPED arrangements for his funeral may be a problem. His Christian relatives may like to have had a talk at the Kingdom Hall, if that is the local custom. But that would not be fitting for a person expelled from the congregation. If he had been giving evidence of repentance and wanting God’s forgiveness, such as by ceasing to practice sin and by attending Christian meetings, some brother’s conscience might allow him to give a Bible talk at the funeral home or grave site. Such Biblical comments about the condition of the dead provide a witness to unbelievers or comfort to the relatives.”
“However, if the disfellowshiped person had still been advocating false teachings or ungodly conduct, even such a talk would not be appropriate.“
🔷”False teachings” as in FALSE about the Watchtower organization, not God.
🔷 How cold and unloving this cult is. What happened to the scripture they use that says at Romans 6:7
“For the one who has died has been acquitted from his sin.”

Getting disfellowshipped is not a death sentence like the propaganda image you posted of Stephen getting stoned. That's a big reach. Watchman, is very much a live and is able to get his message out.
