We must disassociate ourselves totally from such people. Just associating with such people is exceedingly dangerous; so we must not talk with, visit with, or converse with them: for if we were to do so we might change our mind about how evil they are, and be converted from our present state of grace. We know which experiences are good grounds for totally rejecting evil people, because holy scriptures tells us. We have no need for informative confessions from such people regarding what the nature of their experiences have been, or what the natural consequences of the experiences have been; for holy scripture is the one and only adequate ground for passing judgment. Those people who have had such experiences are totally evil people, because they are always alienated from good people like us; who know with full confidence what holy scripture tells us we must always do, and tells us what we must never do. We must never change our minds about the meaning of holy scripture as we have always understood holy scripture since our childhood. If we are to be saved from the mortal danger of knowing in detail what it is like to have been involved in taboo experiences, we must not consider for a moment what it is like to be despised and rejected by men, and put on a cross because of having been involved in taboo experiences. Such knowledge is too terrible to contemplate, too dangerous to consider. Such knowledge of the consequences of experiencing our: rejections, alienations, excommunications, shunnings, disfellowships, and banishments is evil knowledge; we must avoid it in order to be saved! We must not listen to the people who have experienced evil because of our rejections, alienation, excommunications, shunning and disfellowshipping. The people who have had such experiences are totally evil people, and we must totally avoid them. Praise be to God for giving us our gospel by which we can self-righteously separate ourselves from evil people, and so view them from a morally safe distance, as they suffer in hell because of their evil experiences and our holy rejections.
