Many cultural, religious, and ethnic groups practice shunning of those who do not conform to group norms. What does the Bible say about shunning for believing Christians? How does this apply to the plethora of Christian churches in America? When are doctrinal differences too big to maintain fellowship? When fellowship is broken what about societal cooperation? These are hard questions that have a big impact on our relationships and social trajectory. We will show the biblical New Testament standard and then talk about some of applications
Religious shunning bars association with people who have been labeled as apostates, whistleblowers, dissidents or anyone the religion perceives as a threat or source of conflict. Rob Robertson’s guest, Janette, has experienced shunning and will discuss this practice and the damage that it can do. After twenty years of involvement in Scientology, she and her husband concluded that the organization was a sham. They left … and were ostracized by the entire Clearwater, Florida Scientology Community. They lost their jobs, friends and even contact with some of their family members. ”It was a very public witch hunt against us,” Janette says. Since then, Janette and her husband met many people from various religious backgrounds, all with similar stories of shunning and corruption. Janette created a website called Truth Rundown to expose the abuses and corruption going on in not only Scientology, but in several religious organizations and cults such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints (FLDS). Please visit GodDiscussion.net for more information and links. ~~~ World Cult Watch, a weekly program that airs every Sunday night, is intended to not only offer news and information about cults, but to provide a forum where cult survivors — and those wanting to leave — have a chance to talk and receive emotional support. Rob runs the “World Cult Watch” website.
To truly forgive others or ourself we have to:
(1) understand what forgiveness TRULY is and its energy basis, and
(2) see how we need to undertand what it is we are forgiving.
We tend to miss the mark of Truth by not having Gnosis of what precisely forgiveness Divinely is and is not. We also have a human tendency to elaborate as to the validity of something supposedly being the truth of the situation and jump to a blaming conclusion of how it needs to be forgiven and wanting to extract a price for it.
Our hearts need to not be burdened and poisoning our minds with the many antithesis of forgiveness that have arisen in our conscousness, such as hating, resenting, seeking vengence, 'eye for eye' thinking, revenge, shunning, 'the silence treatment', anger/rage, other attacking hostile responses we hope will balance the scales of justice for us. Is balance really what is happening, or not, with our violent solutions?
Does forgiveness mean to "let someone get away with" an atrocity? Does it mean we never impose sanctions for violating and harming others? Does it mean we 'turn the other cheek' and permit people to do violence to self or others? Does it mean we turn a blind eye with a positivity approach? Are these questions signs of confusion on how to deal with wounded hearts and minds? Is it wise to forgive and forget?
SELFGnosis takes a pragmatic and balancing approach to the whole idea of forgiveness because it is dealt with as the primal issue it is: a break from Oneness.
It is a restoration of AT-One-Ment, thus, atonement. Energy is the key to longevity healing and At-One-ment rendering a Peace that surpasses all understanding.

On today's show, we are going to be talking about CHURCH SHUNNING.
Have you ever confronted the pastor, or decided to launch your own business/ ministry or disagreed with the vision/ direction of your church? Have you ever been isolated because of it? Better yet, have you stopped attending your church consistently and been shunned because of it? Have you LEFT your IC, and your remaining friends have blacklisted you?
When is public shunning not discrimination? When the law says so. At least that is the opinion of the Arizona Legislature.
"After the Arizona Legislature gave approval on Thursday to allow business owners to assert their religious beliefs and refuse service to gays, Rocco's Little Chicago Pizzeria in Tucson put up this sign.
"The restaurant said, “Funny how just being decent is starting to seem radical these days.” See the full story athttp://bit.ly/1bsFS2d.
Kansas avoided passing a similar bill last week by tabling it in committee at he behest of business interests. Who is behind this new attempt to validate religious discrimination?
On Thursday's Lunch with Louden we will talk about The Ethics and Public Policy Center's American Religious Freedom Program, the local Religious Freedom Caucuses, and the funding behind this national initiative. (Hint: Citizens United strikes again.)

Jeanene Louden and co-host Debilyn Molineaux talk about current events and look for opportunities to bridge political divides, expose corruption and share information not covered in mainstream media.
Shunning is the 'ultimate rejection'
Used for centuries in religious circles, I believe women today use it as a means of bullying. It's as much psychological violence as a slap or a punch is physical violence.
It has to stop.
Today, I'll be talking about what it is, why we do it, what effects it has and why it has to stop and how we can be part of the solution.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT WE ARE MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD?
HUMAN'S HAVE THE CAPACITY AND CAPABILITY OF THINKING, CREATING, BUILDING AND SENSING. NOT AS ANIMALS WHO ARE LIMITED.
NEVER TO BECOME 'GODLIKE' OR 'LIKE GOD' OTHER THAN IMITATING GOD BY LOVING WHAT IS GOOD AND SHUNNING EVIL.
WELL SATAN HATES THAT. SO HE BEGAN DESTROYING GOD'S PRIZE CREATION THE HUMAN RACE IN THE GARDEN OF PARADISE, THROUGH A SERPENT. HOWEVER, GOD HAS HAD A PLAN BECAUSE HE KNEW THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE WAS FALLEN WHO WAS BORN OF A WOMAN. THE REMEDY WAS GOD MANIFEST IN FLESH. IN THE BODY OF IMMANUEL, GOD IS WITH US.
"SACRIFICE AND OFFERING THOU HAS NOT DEIRED. BUT A BODY YOU HAVE PREPARED FOR ME."
DO NOT SWARE. SATAN HAS DECEIVED MORTAL MEN SWARE.
EVERYONE DOES WHAT IS WISE according to man made tradition and their own fallen uncircumcised impenitent hearts
In those days there was no king in Israel: EVERY MAN did that which was right in HIS OWN eyes.
DO NOT SWEAR, either BY HEAVEN or BY EARTH OR WITH ANY OTHER OATH. Your yes is to be yes, and your no, no, so that you may not FALL UNDER JUDGEMENT.
DO NOT SWEAR AN OATH EITHER BY HEAVEN, for it is GOD'S THRONE. (YESHUA. JUDGE OF ALL)
Is Gilead WICKED? (THE UNBELIEVEING PAGAN HEATHEN) Its people are worthless! Do they sacrifice BULLS in Gilgal?
Their ALTARS will be like PILES of STONES on a plowed field. (WICCA, BLACK ARTS, WITCHCRAFT, SORCERY)

Today we have two special guests who not only served at Bethel headquarters but also served as Gilead Missionaries and trainers in Spain for many years.
Very few know about the big shake up at Watchtower Headquarters in 1980 that eventually led to former Governing Body member Ray Franz Crisis of Conscience! It all began with 4 Spanish translators for the New World translation (Chris and Norma Sanchez) and for the Watchtower magazines and publications (Nestor and Toni Kuilan). Nestor and Toni served in Spain during the dictatorship regimen of Francisco Franco and also worked in the circuit, district, as a conductor of the two week school for the elders as well in the service department in the Barcelona Branch. This will be a riveting interview of not only their story in becoming Jehovah's Witnesses but the important work they did that has garnered them the honor of the only reinstatement possible must be done by the governing body members themselves if Nestor and Toni should ever decide to return! This will be the first of 2 programs with this couple the other being done October 4th! Both of these interviews are reserved for 2 hour programs so everyone can get the juicy details!
