taking into consideration answers to the following

˙ How widely known is the matter?

˙ Did he voluntarily confess, or did the matter

˙ How will respect for the bodyof elders be aﬀect-

˙ If por·neia was involved, has a confession been
made tothe innocent mate?
˙ To what degree have lives been aﬀected or dam-

matter involve child abuse or adultery?
45. If the individual is serving as a ministerial ser-

examined. If the body of elders determines that he
no longer qualiﬁes, a report should be submitted to
the branch oﬃce.—See 3:19-21.
74 “Shepherd the Flockof God”—1 Peter 5:2
So… basically if you commit a gross sin, you should NEVER confess it immediately. You should hide it for as long as possible. Then, when the elders find out they are allowed to just sweep it under the rug. Even if you committed a sin then continued serving as a pioneer or elder. No big deal, you can just stop serving or maybe we won’t even make you do that and that’s it!!!
Too bad for all those poor suckers who took Proverbs 28:13 seriously and got themselves disfellowshipped for confessing too soon!
“The one covering over his transgressions will not succeed . …whoever confesses them will be shown mercy . ” (but only if they confess them a really long time after they commit them)
You can sin all you want just don’t get caught and whatever you do WAIT YEARS UNTIL YOU CONFESSSSSSS ! !
Is your blood boiling like mine? This is sick!PHARISEES!!!

This is clearly to cover the tracks of those men who are still around from the gross sinning with the U.N. before 1992 (when they had applied to be engaged to the U.N.) or after January 28, 1992 when the were actually married as adulteresses (bigamist’s) to the U.N. as an approved NGO. All of the 1NC’s are now dead, but the “helpers” to the GB are still around in some capacity. Some of them masquerading as New Covenant Bride Members, but they still have “never” repented publicly. Perhaps they went through the motions of repentance like your comment suggests, but they have not been forgiven by Jehovah. I wouldn’t be surprised if they are not still connected in some sly way. When you commit sin and do not repent your heart hardens to sin and you stop looking at the activity as sin anymore. Or, you reason that all that field service and all that Bethel service somehow wipes away the sin. IT DOESN’T. They will be disciplined by Jehovah and his Son Christ Jesus very soon and hopefully they will be moved to repentance for this awful sin they have committed.
