Because Jehovah God, the Almighty, the Creator of mankind; tells Christians in the Bible that it might; for good reasons, be necessary.This is not an unusual practice. Everyone practices it in some form.For example:Some families may tell their son or daughter: "I don't want you playing with Johnny any more." This is a form of curtailing fellowship. And no doubt they have good reasons.Some American Indian tribes practice 'banishment'. They have good reasons.Even most countries, arrest criminals; and place them in prison. This is a form of disfellowshipping. Their loved ones, their marriage mate, their children; are restricted from fellowship with them. Perhaps only a few times a year, and only for an hour or so; and that may be through a glass window with a phone for voice connection. This is an acceptable practice.Responding to accusations of Cruelty:Jehovah's Witnesses don't do quite as harsh as 'banishment' and 'prison'. No one is banished from being in our presence and singing with us. They can come to our meetings; they can sing; they can say 'amen'; they can walk up to the literature counter and receive for free any piece of literature for themselves (and their children, if they have.) They also are admitted to our 3-day conventions in large stadiums, for free. Upon request they can even receive personalized spiritual counseling from the elders. This does happen quite often. They end up being comforted, and strengthened spiritually, and emotionally.I know of many human kindnesses done for disfellowshipped ones locally by elders and others; (including purchasing a vehicle for one lady; after having repaired her old one without cost to her; among other things. The lady has now disappeared and has not requested reinstatement for 5 years since then.)We also accept pleas for reinstatement. They are not permanently banished. When disfellowshipped ones are willing to live by Jehovah's righteous requirements, they may make a plea for reinstatement. There is no time-limit with us, as in a prison sentence. We have helped so many find their way back again. And once they're back, they often mention that the action taken on them, was what helped jolt them to their senses and straighten up.All the clamoring and bellyaching of 'apostates'; and other 'mainstreamers'; are embellished exaggerations; which we dismiss faster than they can finish their sentence.Grounds for disfellowshipping, with references,Adultery (sexual intercourse with a person other than your marriage mate), includes;Abandoning wife and eloping with another woman - w79 11/15 31-2, w76 p.728Planned adultery to break Scriptural marriage ties - w83 3/15 p.29Remarriage without Scriptural permission - w56 10/1 p.597Polygamy - jv 176Dating a person not legally divorced - ks91-E p.135Apostasy - w83 4/1 pp.22-4, km 8/80 pp.1, 4. includes;Rebellion against Jehovahs organization - w63 7/1Promoting sects - it-2 886Associating with disfellowshipped people including;Friends - ks91-E p.103, w81 9/15 pp.25-6, w55 10/1 p.607Family - ks91-E p.103Blood and blood transfusions - w61 1/15 ks91-E p.95, jv p.183-4Drug use - ks91-E p.96Drunkenness - ks91-E p.95, it-1 656Dishonest business practices - w63 7/1, w86 11/15 14Employment violating Christian principles - km 9/76 p.6, km 2/74Working for any religious organization - ks91-E p.95Working in a gambling institution - ks91-E p.136Selling tobacco - ks91-E p.96Contract work at a military establishmentFalse worship.

This enables this term to be used to disfellowship for a wide range of offences not elsewhere covered, and as such is used to cover all manner of sins, such as refusal to cease fellowship with disfellowshipped people, or even being contemptuous in a judicial meeting where no other sin can be proven.Lying - ks91-E p.94, g00 2/8 p.21Non neutral activities (involvement in politics and the military) - ks91-E p.96Military service and non military service including working casual work (certain civilian work has recently been made a conscience matter w96 5/1 p.20) - ks91-E p.96Obscene speech - ks91-E p.95Parents condoning immorality - w56 p.566Political involvement, including voting or holding a political card in Malawi - ks91-E p.96 (w99 11/1 p.28 made voting a conscience matter)Porneia.
