“If a Christian knows that a brother or sister has done something seriously wrong, he should tell that person to confess the sin to the elders. (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10; James 5:14-16) If the person does not confess his sin, the Christian who knows of the sin should tell the elders about it. If the Christian does not say anything because he wants to keep peace with the sinner, then he too is sinning.—Leviticus 5:1; read Proverbs 29:24.” (SOURCE)
“If we fall into serious sin, we need to repent sincerely and seek Jehovah’s forgiveness. We must confess our sins to him. (1 John 1:9) We also need to approach the elders, who can offer us spiritual help. (Jas. 5:14-16) By availing ourselves of Jehovah’s arrangements, we show that we trust in his promise to heal and forgive us.” (SOURCE)

Very nice review. I especially liked your coverage at the end about how unscriptural it is to confess to the Elders. Keep up the good work.
Nice to see your comments on Boroean Pickets too.👍
