El 16 de noviembre, el FSB de Rusia realizó búsquedas en 30 direcciones en Dzhankoy. El objetivo de los operativos, según los medios de comunicación, era la comunidad religiosa de los Testigos de Jehová, que fue prohibida en Rusia. Como informó el corresponsal de Radio Liberty, el jefe del grupo regional local de "Testigos" - "Sivash" - Sergey Filatov fue detenido. Ahora Crimea está bajo arresto domiciliario.

Según el abogado del grupo internacional de derechos humanos Agora, Aleksey Ladin , se abrió una causa penal contra Filatov sobre la organización de las actividades de una asociación religiosa que fue reconocida por el tribunal como extremista. Bajo este artículo, se enfrenta a una pena de prisión de 6 a 10 años. Los medios rusos han sugerido que las acciones de los miembros de la comunidad de Crimea se coordinaron desde el centro de Kharkov de los Testigos de Jehová, sin excluir la influencia de los servicios especiales ucranianos. Al mismo tiempo, el centro administrativo de la comunidad ucraniana está ubicado en realidad en la aldea de Bryukhovichi, región de Lviv.
- El Tribunal Supremo de la Federación Rusa ha prohibido las actividades de nuestras organizaciones religiosas. Según la legislación rusa, esto se aplica a las personas jurídicas. Nadie ha prohibido la religión de los testigos de Jehová, los grupos religiosos. Rusia a nivel internacional, mientras respondía al Tribunal Europeo de Derechos Humanos, indicaba muy claramente que los testigos de Jehová podían profesar sus puntos de vista y tener derecho a reunirse. Pero en realidad vemos algo completamente diferente: cualquier evento conjunto de los Testigos de Jehová, incluso si se reunieron en casa para no hablar de temas religiosos, se interpreta como una continuación de las actividades de una organización prohibida con todas las consecuencias subsiguientes. En Rusia, unas 30 personas están ahora en el SIZO y aproximadamente el mismo número están bajo arresto domiciliario.
Sergey Afanasyev señala que al menos 62 personas de entre los "Testigos de Jehová" han sido procesadas.

“En cuanto a las acusaciones sonadas en Crimea, los testigos de Jehová de Ucrania no pueden coordinarse con los de Crimea. ¿De dónde obtienen información sobre Kharkov, no lo sé. Los congresos de los testigos de Jehová se celebran regularmente en esta ciudad, y los creyentes de Crimea y Rusia pueden asistir a ellos. El FSB ruso podría seguir sus movimientos y, sobre esta base, decidir que las actividades de las comunidades se coordinan desde Ucrania. En Crimea solía haber muchos más "Testigos de Jehová", pero no tengo información sobre los refugiados en Europa.

El jefe del Centro de análisis SOVA, experto en legislación extremista, Alexander Verkhovsky, cree que el estado ruso no está satisfecho con la supervisión de los testigos de Jehová.

- En Rusia, hay otras asociaciones religiosas que se adhieren a las mismas opiniones pacifistas que tienen los testigos de Jehová. Por lo tanto, me parece que el asunto es otra cosa. Las razones no son que a alguien no le guste su enseñanza. Como vemos una campaña a gran escala, que sin duda está controlada desde arriba, obviamente hay algunas razones no públicas. Hay dos versiones: o algunas personas en la parte superior sufren de pensamientos de conspiración y les parece que los testigos de Jehová son tales agentes de influencia estadounidense, o el hecho de que a los testigos de Jehová no les gustan los contactos excesivos con el estado. Cumplen con la ley, pero intentan tener menos negocios con el estado; no están incluidos en todo tipo de consejos, donde suelen estar conformadas por otras organizaciones religiosas. Ni siquiera es una cuestión de control, solo que esta distancia es sospechosa.

Alexander Verkhovsky afirma: si docenas de personas permanecen en el SIZO por el hecho de participar en reuniones religiosas; esto es represión, la ley rusa entra en conflicto con la disposición constitucional sobre libertad de religión y reunión.

"Todos nos preguntamos por qué no habíamos llegado a Crimea hasta ahora, y llegamos aquí". A lo largo de Rusia, esto sucede literalmente: desde el Lejano Oriente hacia el Oeste. Casi sin excepción, el mismo artículo se imputa a los "Testigos de Jehová"; esto es 282.2, un hecho de continuar las actividades de una organización prohibida. Hay un par de casos en los que intentaron usar la posesión de armas o algo más, pero lo principal es esto. El artículo 282.2 no es muy común para los códigos penales europeos, pero tampoco puede considerarse inconstitucional. Tenemos una norma constitucional que permite prohibir organizaciones, y debe haber algún tipo de sanción para continuar su trabajo. Otra cosa es que el artículo criminal prevé un castigo completamente desproporcionado al acto. Queda por esperar que las personas que serán condenadas, y no tengo ninguna duda al respecto, no estén sujetas a una verdadera privación de libertad.

Anton Chivchalov, el creador de los proyectos "Rincón bíblico" y "La situación religiosa en Rusia", ve en la persecución actual una oferta directa de represión de la era soviética.

- Nos complace comunicarnos con los funcionarios, con los periodistas, transmitimos nuestra posición. No somos monjes que vivimos en el bosque y nos negamos a comunicarnos con la gente. Es difícil entender cómo esta podría ser la causa. Supongamos que no participamos en las elecciones, pero la ley no obliga a los ciudadanos a hacerlo. En mi opinión, la continuación de la misma política que existía en la Unión Soviética está sucediendo, esta es una política de persecución de los disidentes religiosos. Las actuales autoridades rusas lo continúan. Los "testigos de Jehová" fueron llamados extremistas bajo Yuri Andropov. Todo ciudadano de Rusia tiene derecho a profesar cualquier religión o no a profesar ninguna. Para hacer esto, él no necesita ir bajo tierra. Esta es la peor brutalidad policial.

    • An interesting concept, bible discipline. I am struck by the prevalence of ignorance about spiritual discipline on "Reddit." While physical and mental disciplines receive attention, the profound impact of spiritual discipline on a person's physical and mental well-being is often overlooked. Is it possible to argue against the words of the Apostle Paul? When he penned those words in Hebrews 12, he was recognizing that there are moments when an individual must be "rebuked" in order to be corrected. Even Jesus himself established a precedent when he rebuked Peter and referred to him as Satan for failing to comprehend what Jesus had already revealed to the apostles. Did that imply that Jesus had an evil heart? Not at all, it was quite the opposite; Jesus had a loving heart. His need to correct Peter actually showcased his genuine love for him. If he hadn't cared, he would have let Peter persist in his mistaken ways, leading to a fate similar to Judas'. There is a clear emphasis on avoiding the apostate translation and its meaning, yet many seem to overlook the biblical foundation for the reasons NOT to follow the path of the fallen brethren or those with an apostate mentality. Those individuals have embraced the path of darkness, where the illuminating power of light cannot penetrate, to avoid receiving the righteous discipline based on God's Bible teachings. They are undoubtedly aware that this undeniable truth of life must be disregarded in order to uphold their baseless justifications for the unjust act of shunning. Can anyone truly "force" someone or stop them from rejecting a friend or family member? Such a notion would be absurd, considering the fact that we all have the power of free will. If a Witness decides to distance themselves from a family member or friend simply because they have come out as gay, who is anyone within the organization to question or challenge that personal sentiment? It is unfortunate that there are individuals, both within and outside the organization, who not only lack a proper understanding of the Bible but also dare to suggest that God's discipline is barbaric. We must remember that personal choices should be respected, and it is not for others to judge or condemn someone based on their sexual orientation but should be avoided under biblical grounds. No one should have the power to compel an individual to change their sexual orientation, nor should anyone be forced to accept someone for who they are. When it comes to a family's desire to shield their children from external influences, who has the right to challenge the parents' decision? And if a family's rejection of others is based on cultural factors rather than religious beliefs, who can impose religious judgment on them? Who should true followers of Christ follow? The words of God or those who believe they can change God's laws to fit their lives? How can we apply the inspired words of Paul from God to embrace the reality of God's discipline? On the contrary, how can nonconformists expect to persuade those with a "worldview" that their religious beliefs are unacceptable by ostracizing individuals, when God condemns homosexuality? This is precisely why the arguments put forth by ex-witnesses are lacking in their pursuit of justice. When they employ misguided tactics, justice remains elusive as their arguments are either weak or inconsistent with biblical standards. Therefore, it is crucial to also comprehend Paul's words in 1 Corinthians 9:27. The use of the word "shun" is being exaggerated and excessively condemned by those who reject biblical shunning as a form of punishment. Eph 5:3-14 NIV 3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. 5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person — such a man is an idolater — has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.  6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient. 7 Therefore do not be partners with them.  8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible. The impact of the message becomes significantly stronger when we emphasize the importance of avoiding any association with unrighteousness and those who remain unrepentant. In fact, it becomes even more compelling when we witness how some individuals, who dismiss biblical shunning as a method of discipline, excessively criticize and condemn the use of the word "shun". Therefore, Jehovah's Witnesses do not shun people; instead, they choose to focus on the negative actions being committed, which is in accordance with biblical teachings. This should be construed as ex-Witness rhetoric. Now, let's consider why ex-Witnesses specifically target one particular religion. What justifications do they provide when other Christian denominations also adhere to the same principle grounded in the Bible? Chapter 1 - Preface Both must therefore test themselves: the one, if he is qualified to speak and leave behind him written records; the other, if he is in a right state to hear and read: as also some in the dispensation of the Eucharist, according to  custom enjoin that each one of the people individually should take his part. One's own conscience is best for choosing accurately or shunning. And its firm foundation is a right life, with suitable instruction. But the imitation of those who have already been proved, and who have led correct lives, is most excellent for the understanding and practice of the commandments. "So that whosoever shall eat the bread and drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup."  It therefore follows, that every one of those who undertake to promote the good of their neighbours, ought to consider whether he has betaken himself to teaching rashly and out of rivalry to any; if his communication of the word is out of vainglory; if the the only reward he reaps is the salvation of those who hear, and if he speaks not in order to win favour: if so, he who speaks by writings escapes the reproach of mercenary motives. "For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know," says the apostle, "nor a cloak of covetousness. God is witness. Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome as the apostles of Christ. But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children."   (from Ante-Nicene Fathers, Volume 2) Divine promises 2. The manner of shunning, in the word escaping. There is a flying away required, and that quickly, as in the plague, or from a fire which hath almost burned us, or a flood that breaketh in upon us. We cannot soon enough escape from sin (Matt 3:7; Heb 6:18). No motion but flight becomes us in this case. Doctrine: That the great end and effect of the promises of the gospel is to make us partakers of the Divine nature. (from The Biblical Illustrator)  
    • Clearly, they are already demanding your exile. Yes! It's unfortunate that Pudgy spoiled a great discussion about science. I hope the discussion can continue without any more nonsensical interruptions. Just a suggestion since they are on your heels. Wow! You speak! It seems you have a lot to say! Now they are going to treat like, who do you think you are, mister big stuff! Are those aliens now going to imply that anyone who speaks out against the five or six key contributors to this site will be treated as though it is George just because those in opposition speak the language they hate to hear, the TRUTH? They are seeking individuals who will embrace their nonconformist values and appreciate what they can offer in shaping public opinion contrary to the established agenda of God and Christ. Their goal is to enhance their writing abilities and avoid squandering time on frivolous pursuits, mainly arguing about the truth they don't care for. They see it all as a mere game, even when leading people astray. They believe they have every right to and will face no biblical repercussions, or so they believe. They just want to have fun just like that Cyndi Lauper song. Be prepared to be belittled and ridiculed, all the while they claim to be angels. Haha! By the way, please refrain from using the same language as George. They appear to believe that when others use the same words, it means they are the same person, and they emphasize this as if no one else is allowed to use similar grammar. It seems they think only they have the right to use the same or similar writing styles. Quite amusing, isn't it? See, what I just placed in bold, now I'm George, lol! Now, let's leave this nice science thread for people that want to know more about science. I believe George left it at "Zero Distance."  
    • Nice little thread you’ve got going here, SciTech. It would be a shame if something were to happen to it.
    • It's truly disheartening when someone who is supposed to be a friend of the exclusive group resorts to using profanity in their comments, just like other members claiming to be witnesses. It's quite a ludicrous situation for the public to witness.  Yet, the "defense" of such a person, continues. 
    • No. However, I would appreciate if you do not reveal to all and sundry the secret meeting place of the closed club. (I do feel someone bad stomping on Sci’s little thread. But I see that has already happened.)
