Disfellowshipping can be an effective silencer.
Fear is a powerful motivator to be loyal at all costs. Jehovah's Witnesses are afraid to speak out against the organization or leave because they risk losing their family and closest relationships.
Not only that but disfellowshipped persons know that their status with the Watchtower organization is indirectly harming innocent family members and friends within the organization who can no longer speak with them.
Disfellowshipping destroys families and relationships.
It is a powerful motivator that protects the organization from harm at the expense of Jehovah's Witnesses inside and outside the organization. However, does it keep the organization clean? Here's what disfellowshipping does.
In this way, disfellowshipped persons are punished along with Jehovah's Witnesses within the organization who have done nothing wrong. It would be like everyone getting a speeding ticket just because one person was going too fast.
Jesus said, 'Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that?' Matthew 5:44-46.
The Apostle Paul's theology deviated from what Jesus taught. Paul talked about judging wicked people within the early Christian congregation. 1 Cor 5:12. Did Paul disagree with Jesus? And if so, why?
Jesus warned his followers against the leaven of the Pharisees. The Apostle Paul converted to Christianity after Jesus died. Before that he was a zealous persecutor of Christians. He was even responsible for the death of some Christians. In addition, Paul claimed to be a Pharisee after converting to Christianity. Acts 23:6 See Facts About The Apostle Paul
