Watchtower, October 15, 2012
In the latest October 15th 2012 Watchtower (page 13)... "Because of what they perceive as defects in the elders, some individuals who engage in serious wrongdoing in the congregation have refused to appear before a committee of elders assigned to help them. This could be likened to a patient who loses out on the benefits of a treatment because he does not like something about the doctor." Sounds like they're now trying to stigmatize those who try to avoid judicial action. Of course, it's also supremely ironic that they talk about declining medical treatment in a negative way, but encourage people to do precisely this when it comes to treatment using blood transfusions! Furthermore, they are equating the skills of a physician who trains for decades for his job with a part time, inadequately trained, more than likely uneducated, congregation elder.
