You got my boi bobbing & weaving Jace.

People, this corporation, the Watchtower Bible tract society is a multi-million dollar corporation who claims to be Gods appointed organization here on earth yet they have absolutely NO charitable programs. NOT ONE. Beit a soup kitchen, or a simple clothing donation drive, they do NOTHING but hawk magazines and build more kingdom halls where they're build off the sweat of their worker bees and the deed is owned by the society.

Crazy but true. Money laundering I believe its called.

Back to this stupid argument again. The WTS is bound by law to spend DONATED FUNDS on the things that they were donated for - distributing Bibles and books.
It is the same for ANY non-profit organisation.
For instance a cat rescue centre is NOT ALLOWED BY LAW to give its donated funds to hungry homeless people.
Where is the donation box located in the KH that says, "For purchase of real estate"?
Yeah right

most anti-witness posts are done by former JW's
who have been removed for immoral conduct.
I have an idea--why not go and join the Catholic church--
they will accept any kind of conduct as long as you put
the getis in the collection plate.:)

This post is an excellent example of the lies posted by jehovah's witness wannabees.

These fools point to other religions to take the heat off of Satan's cult, the jehovah's witnesses.

While the Catholics are a cult, and have false teachings, the jehovah's witnesses are much more wicked and controlled by Satan.

People who do "anti-witness" posts are true Christians who expose Satan's cult, the non-Christian jehovah's witnesses who produce false prophecies, false doctrines, false scriptures, and molested children.

Those who defend this wicked cult, the jehovah's witnesses, are servant's of Satan.

And where is the collection box that has the label "for lawsuits lodged against the WTS"? Litigation costs are expensive....and SOMEONE has to foot these bills!

But according to uneducated gareth ,jehovah will provide ,funny thing ,,their losing members which means less money ,so where is jehovah providing ?
As for the losing of members...there are so many factors that can determine this loss. The devastating economy and cost of gas, has greatly reduced how often the family will pile into the car and go much of anywhere....to church, meetings, service, shopping for necessities and even visiting with others.

Attendance to churches AND Kingdom Halls has been greatly affected by this alone, besides those that are lucky enough to HAVE jobs...often will carry TWO jobs trying to make ends meet and they are both mentally and physically exhausted.

Folks are struggling to keep things together but this economy has beaten down so many despite whatever faith or religion they follow. God does provide what HE thinks are the basic necessities and this doesn't particularly apply to the idea of providing gas to get to the Kingdom Hall or to be traveling all over the place to be "out in field service".

This is why I so strongly feel that since we are ALL facing this dilemma as a family, the family of mankind, that we really need to be there FOR one another no matter how or where we choose to worship.

We need to show our willingness to work FOR each other in harmony WITH one another....and this has to be done before we can ever hope to live forever on an earth where His will is going to be done.

Dude, do I run a multi-million dollar corporation? Am I claiming to be Gods mouthpiece here on earth? I do do what I can to help others but keep it between me and my God. Trust me, anything I'd do would be more than your arrogant, self appointed, Satan lead cult has done in its whole existence.
You are a true Snake. A wolf in sheep's clothing here to KNOWINGLY mislead us from Christ.
You're knowingly deceitful and will have to account for this someday.
You don't keep it between you and your god.

You're on here, spouting off on how everyone should be like you.

Not everyone believes what you do and none of us have to answer to you for our beliefs, or lack of.

WTBS, or any other entity in this country can pretty much dispose of their property in any manner they see fit. You're approval is not a prerequisite.

OK, lets not call it money laundering lets just call it greed. Where I'm from, Watts, Los Angeles you see the devil and his demons working on pol everyday. People starving on the streets, crime, murder, drugs are an everyday thing that sometimes you question the existence of a God. But I know that if I stay faithful like Job that Knight be able to be with my daughter in heaven so I stay faithful because inside of me I know its the right thing to do. Yet, instead of actually offering help that would Make a difference they offer me a magazine. Instead of helping my sister down the street who has her eye hanging down her face Cuz her man got jealous with real help they hawk a magazine and fill out their little time card. LOL, THEY ARE A FAKE, A FRONT, a SCAM.

No the wt is not in trouble at all

Most folks don't realize the wt has done like any good corporation. Laid off 600 volunteers gone from hardboard books to soft cover that requires no bindery dept

They own every single branch assembly hall and kingd hall on the face of the earth

It has been paid for by others --built for free
And now they can sell th off and reap a wonderful wind fall. In profit

You need to understand the wt pays no salary to anyone They have no insurance for anyone outside of bethel. All co and do have no pension no retirement. No health benifits

If you have any exp whatsoever in owning your own business if you did not have to pay just those items alone. Do you know how much profit apple and Microsoft Would make

Even the catholic church has a retirement plan for their most loyal supporters priest and nuns

Wt on the other hand kicked bethelites out with decades of service

They were told by the society after 5 years they can live the remainder of their days at bethel

See jackA$$$ like Gareth don't know jack about those promises made by the gb to bethelites

Co and do and missionaries the most loyal of loyal no retirement and with no kids as most they will have no safety net provided by the society

Yet they cash in almost a $$$$$ a billion a year tax free and in the last few years they'd have cashed on probably close to a billion dollars in real estate. Around the works that they sold

Wt only needs about 30-50 key men at bethel to run

Writing legal treasury and service dept

They could send everyone else home and contract out all the printing

Do you know how many printing company would want the wt account

In my hall here in dc we has a ms who worked in publishing he did the national geographic mag

He had a trade mag that said wt was the second largest printing outfit behind the US GOV PRINTING OFFICE

do you know how. Many forms the us prints. And wt is number two

So they ain't hurting at all

Is it the amounts they want of course not

Do you think Exxon thinks they have made too much???????

Bingo.

The Watchtower Society's main source of income today is flipping property.

Could you show us were you got those stats from?

I was an elder and former bethelite- never DFed for anything, so not sure what you mean by anit witness, many of the post are merely Asinine teachings written by the WT editorial staff

they wrote the foolishness, we are just pointing it out

i wouldn't call it anti-jw more like Look at what those fools called Food from God
