I recently bumped into an elder who was working in a shop on the tills. I went through his till and purchased some supplies for an elderly sister in a nursing home. I greeted him and he said, "hello". I asked after his wife and he said she was fine. He knew what had happened to me and I told him I had done nothing wrong and I had remained loyal to Jehovah. As he got the change out for me his hands were visibly shaking.
That's very sad to hear. As the verse says, "There is no fear in (real) love." It could be that he was afraid, for whatever season it was.
Amos - the irony being I was on the phone as I went through. The one on the phone, he had baptized. Had he known who that person was, that person he would disfellowship.
Today I was at another till. She is one who is still very much still in. But... she says she knows that what happened to me was wrong. She wants me to come back. She in no way shuns me nor has she ever. She smiled, we chatted - there was no trembling or fear. We discussed Bible and how someone who lost a close relative is being comforted by the scriptures.
Maybe. There are a number of reasons why he could have been trembling.
I just hope he comes to his senses, reads the Bible, listens to his conscience and takes action to distance himself from an organization that pretends to be Christian in order to attack not only Jesus Christ's teachings but also the prophecies in the Old Testament to do with the Messiah.
