I am using Lights of Guidance to prepare study material for some friends. I wish to know if this rule is still in effect:
197. Voting Rights, Only National Assembly Can Deprive Believers of |
"In the Minutes of your meeting of March 13, 1971 we have noted an item on which we wish to comment.
"It concerns your decision to inform the Spiritual Assembly of ... that they can deprive a believer of his administrative rights if they feel that the believer's actions merit this. For the present only the National Assembly may deprive a believer of his administrative rights and this authority should not be given to Local Spiritual Assemblies."
(From a letter of the Universal House of Justice to the National Spiritual Assembly of Honduras, April 18, 1971)
I know Lights of Guidance was compiled decades ago. Please let me know if you know this rule has changed.
