Congregants 'swarm' to raise kingdom hall

May 31, 2014 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Sentinel & Enterprise

It's like a good, old-fashioned barn raising from the old days, but this time members of the Jehovah's Witnesses are gathering to build a 6,100-square-foot kingdom hall at 1275 Central St. Church members from around New England, New York and as far as Texas started construction this week and plan to be done by June 22. More than 100 were expected ... (more)

Swarm is a good word. This is not charity, but gotta love how the WBTS plants these non-stories, because Jehovah's Witness run no charities, do no charitable acts, and actually forbid members from giving to or volunteering for actual charities.
Why does this publishing company cult,get tax breaks meant for charities again????

Religion have been tax free and in fact they can even claim back the tax paid by the donor on the amount given. Once you can show you are a religious movement. In the UK there only 2 mainstream religions.
Now there are all kinds. Even Scientology has been given religious status

Basically you can sell religion as long as you don;t sell goods of any sort or newspapers One reason none of these religions can charge for the literature You can bet your life they would do so if they thought they could get away with it,
One thing I know is that wherever there is money there will be corruption.
and far from being exempt from it Religions probably has more than anything else.
The saying "you never see a poor religion is true"
The Nigerian churches make no bones about it is you don;t put enough in the collection you'll be told to dig deeper
meanwhile the minister is riding around in a top of the range Mercedes Car. Its not only corruption but intimidation Many of these are churches of Crooks

grow up hMMM, preaching door to door is more charitable than anything out there. JW's don't forbid anything, get your facts straight.

"preaching door to door is more charitable than anything out there."

Lol

What's interesting is thinking about you saying this to some homeless bum on the brink of death in Manhattan.

See,this is why I have little respect for JWS as a whole,they say things on the net that they would never say in public because they KNOW its asinine.I can figure out right off the bat if one is a JW merely by their wording,terminology and thought process on here.

And it doesn't even align with the Good Samaritan of the Bible.the guy in the ditch was physically helped and not given a piece of literature,the guy would have suffered and died if someone just gave him a piece of literature.

Sure,individual JWS do help people from time to time but it's few and far between and it's usually between other JWS ,the JW thought process is one that looks at charities as a negative thing and that thought process was put in place by the people running the watchtower society.

As much as the WT leaders have cleverly persuaded their followers to believe that handing out magazines is on a par with the human compassion shown in the Good Samaritan parable....it is NOT a charitable act...but is actually a WT-approved method of trying to gain converts to their organization.

Those who love God seek the truth and Jehovah's Witnesses kindly share it. I learned from Jehovah's Witnesses and the truth does set one free. Praise Jehovah and continue to sanctify your name and may I pray in the name of Jesus. So be it.
