Where is the Holy Spirit in all this?<quoted text>
Jehovah's Witnesses are just following the Bible as best as they understand it. They use ALL the relevant scriptures in crafting their policy.
The Bible says that the congregation should appoint judges to decide when a person should be removed from the congregation...
*** 1 Cor 5:12,13 For what have I to do with also judging those who are outside? Do you not judge those who are within? But those who are outside, God judges. "Put away the wicked man from among yourselves."
But not any old body in the congregation. Only people "of account" should be appointed to judge, therefore elders:
*** 1Cor 6:4,5 If then, you have to judge things pertaining to this life, do you set them to judge who are of no account in the church? I say this to move you to shame. Is not there even one wise man among you who would be able to decide between his brothers?
And how many judges selected from among the elders are required?
*** 2 Cor 13:1 This is the third time I am coming to you. "At the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established."
And God will respect the decisions of two or three such individuals seeking guidance in Christ's name:
*** Matt 18:19,20 Again, truly I tell you, that if two of you will agree on earth concerning anything that they will ask, it will be done for them by my Father who is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them."
So this is what Jehovah's Witnesses do. If someone is involved in wrong-doing three elders are appointed to judge if the person should be put outside the congregation or not.
But there are other scriptures also that need taking into consideration. James teaches us the power of gossip and loose speech:
*** Jas 3:5 So the tongue is also a little member, and boasts great things. See how a small fire can spread to a large forest!
So it is wrong to examine possibly false charges in front of the whole congregation, threatening to ruin someone's reputation.
Jehovah's Witnesses do not have an agenda to discredit the way Jehovah's Witnesses do things like you do. They have a genuine RESPONSIBILITY and try their best to understand how Bible Christians are encouraged to enforce congregation discipline. So their policy is the result of decades of intense and sincerely prayerful Bible study.
When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth. John 16:13
