Shunning
Here is the scripture that is used:

"I meant that you are not to associate with anyone who claims to be a believer yet indulges in sexual sin, or is greedy, or worships idols, or is abusive, or is a drunkard, or cheats people. Don't even eat with such people." 1 Corinthians 5:11

Shunning is not meant to be mean but to hope that the person understands how serious it is to leave God and will come back. There are quite a few Christian religions that practice this. I wouldn't say this is an easy thing to practice because it looks to be very difficult. But if a person is very serious about their religious beliefs they will be careful who they are around even if they are family members. Sad but the Bible is very serious about this it seems.

Re: Shunning
Shunning is the worst form of cruelty - withdrawing love and interaction from a person is inexcusable.

Re: Shunning
Shunning is what was done to lepers.

Healing is a term used during that time to describe what was done to welcome someone who was shunned back into the community.

Thus, when Jesus healed the lepers he was bringing them back into the community. He did not cure the disease, as some would think, but healed the spirit by being inclusive.

Not if they were mean to you and deserve to be shunned and ignored.

Have you ever had someone play a game on you? made fun of you? talked trash about your loved one? called you a few really bad names? wished death upon you? Just basically bullied you to the point where the only feasible way to avoid their wrath was to completely ignore them and shun any attempt they make to hurt you again?

Well I've experienced this and it really sucked. There are some truly fucked up people in the world who get off on making others hurt inside. With God's protection and Angels around me I have no problem shunning someone who has tried to make me feel really bad. Ignoring someone and shunning them is the absolute best way to rid them of gaining any leverage in your head or having your mind fucked with.

Thank goodness for the Facebook BLOCK option its the equivalent of online shunning and ignoring, LOL! No better way to let someone know they can go pound sand and you NEVER want to hear from them again than the block feature on Facebook. Its the ultimate "I win". When you put the block on someone, they are the loser.

some people call it self preservation.


ignoring and shunning people is not just a Christian thing. Sometimes you have to avoid toxic people to keep your sanity.

I agree, but I've met plenty of people (family included) that are completely toxic and will do anything to rain on your parade.

I ignore them and shun them and it drives them batshit crazy 5a

and i don't care. if they were worth having in my life they would not have treated me so badly.

forgive, forget and move on is my motto.

If the person is abusive to others, then I see nothing wrong with ignoring that person until he/she repents.

But shunning is something different completely. It's a total cutt off of any and all communication, like the person is dead. Even the family members can't speak to the person, not even the parents or children.

It's sick and cruel, and I've seen first hand the devastating effects of shunning.

When I left the Jehovah's Witnesses many years ago, one of my JW friends also left around the same time. All of her family were devout JW's and they never spoke to her again. This was over 15 years ago, they consider her dead. Not even her own mother, father, brothers and sisters will speak to her or her kids.

The emotional harm this has done is untold. It's sick and barbaric. She just doesn't believe the same way that they do anymore, but she is not an evil person.

She is now an atheist because of all the pain associated with her life experience of leaving the JW's. Sad.
