How can it be said that disfellowshipping is a loving provision when it causes so much pain?
Disfellowshipping shows love for . . .
Jehovah by honoring his holy name.—1Pe 1:15, 16
the congregation by protecting it from corrupting influences.—1Co 5:6
the wrongdoer by helping him come to his senses.—Heb 12:11
How can you give support to Christian family members of a disfellowshipped one?
