"The New York-based Jehovah’s Witness organization claims 19 million followers in more than 100,000 congregations worldwide."

Is that so?

What the wt will often do, which is very dishonest is THROW A NET AROUND THE MEMORIAL attendance count

i have seen other others where they give the impression that the count is like this

the papers will report it BUT THE WT DOESN'T DEMAND a correction
let the paper say NOW JW ACCEPT BLOOD TRANSFUSION and they will get a letter from legal

when the guys in NEWS SERVICE is talking to reporters they keep throwing around the memorial attendance in a manner that the reporter who many times is merely covering a story for the sunday paper, will leave with THIS IMPRESSION and report it and the bro will say THEIR MISTAKE NOT OURS

dishonesty is what jw major players do all the time, while the rank and file jw will drive 100 miles to return a pen they picked up in hotel room by mistake for the convention
just to show WE ARE HONEST PEOPLE
rank and file jw are Not TO BE CONFUSED WITH THEIR LEADERSHIP

How do you think Jesus would gather his subjects of his Heavenly Kingdom Government? Of course it is by personal invitation to attend a spiritual feast of spiritual food served by his loyal servants.

It is by invitation to become believers of JESUS CHRIST It is not by inviting them to a assembly where they will be invited to join a religion. You put so much importance on a religion, if you put that much on JESUS, you would have no worries at all.

The first century Christian never went out and invited onlookers to attend the memorial. Their isn't any provision or authority for such ones just as their isn't any provision for ones to have a part in the preaching working.

Just another attempt by the false prophet to mislead

If that were the case, he definitely wouldn't invite them to a jw convention, he'd surely want them to hear the truth instead.

You couldn't join Jehovah's witnesses if you wanted to, it is not a club or Church. There is only one way to become a witness for Jehovah God, and it's not by attending an assembly or convention. It's not by having a Bible study either, none of that makes you a witness, even baptized witnesses are of the belief that they are Jehovah's witnesses and they are not.

Only a very few witnesses are dedicated and living their life as Jesus is directing his loyal subjects today, these are true Christian Jehovah's witnesses.

Why join a religion? Wouldn't it be better to join JESUS Congregation? The only way you can do that is to confess your sins, and dedicate your life to Jesus, it is not done by going door to door and turning in a time slip, by going to meetings, or assemblies, it is by truly believing in the name if JESUS Christ. Believing that he was born, died and was resurrected. Believing that it is by his blood that we can live. Religion, Jehovah's Witnesses, Southern Baptist, Methodist, Catholics, etc have nothing to do with your salvation, it is what is in your heart, mind, and body as to how you receive Jesus that will save you.

The bible was written for all of US, not just 144,000 people. The bible says that Jesus died for all of mankind. Remember, it says God LOVED THE "WORLD", so much, World does not mean only 144,000 but it means every person who has lived, or died, or will live on this earth. It means, me, you, Tom, Mary, Joe and Harry, etc. And the word WHOSEVER means, ANY ONE who believes, will be saved! Stop allowing 8 men to take away from you what you can have by believing, truly believing in Jesus as your Savior. Stop condemning people to death, but tell them about how Jesus can save them to!! That is the message he wants us to share.

I am leaving now to get ready for church. I hope all of you go to church this morning and learn of our Savior Jesus Christ. if you have not made a decision about your life, do it today, don't let another day go by without your Lord in it.

Remember Jesus loves us and wants all of us to come to him.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed day.

If you can picture the spiritual direction of Jesus to his subjects, is in harmony with his direction to the first century Christians, to go and preach and teach God's word or truth to the most distant parts of this earth, is being fulfilled today.

The printed page in over 800 languages to people in over 240 lands, God's warning message is available to all mankind today. Jehovah God has never forced his people to love and serve Him, and Jesus doesn't either, it has always been the individual who loves Jehovah God, that will listen and obey Jehovah's reigning King and his loyal subjects, named Jehovah's witnesses.

There is no other way to survive the coming end of this world ruled by Satan, so I suggest you adjust your attitude and start your Bible study with the witnesses, while you have the time left.

Let off steam by being spontaneous and light-hearted The past couple of days have taken their toll on you and you need to unwind. Take the time to listen to a loved one's reminiscences, because even if you think you've heard it all before you'll learn something new and interesting about them. Keep the bullshit to a minimum if possible.
