Maybe for the first time in Europe, the increase in JW publishers is the same as the population increase namely 0.7%

Which basically means they are no further forward than they were a year ago.
Truly Jehovah is slowing it down in his due time!

Hope I'm not being to petty for our JW friends, but I think this is very good news for Europe.

Bear in mind that 'nominal Christianity' has been on the DECLINE in the west for many years now the fact that JWs are increasing along with world population says a great deal:

http://www.christianpost.com/article/20040306...

Now we are in the last days. There will come a point when all who would come in, will have come in and obviously the numbers will not increase as much as they have in the past.

As the Bible says, men will become lovers of themselves rather than God.

Oh that's good, so we in Europe can expect the message to be,'Well done brothers, the work has now finished.
Garath you know as well as I do they will be saying to the witnesses''get out there on the doors there are still many to come in.'

Incidently we are talking about JWs increase not the churches. Some are losing members others are gaining. The society however constantly tell you that Jehovah is speeding up the work.
Well that is certainly a joke in Europe.

JWs are still growing in Europe.

You say that in the last YEAR they have grown by 0.7%.

However the population in Europe has only grown by 0.8% IN THE LAST DECADE.

That puts JW growth in Europe well above the rate of population growth and at a time when 'nominal Christianity' is in steep decline.

MASSIVE INCREASE in JWs in Europe:

http://www.indexmundi.com/european_union/popu...

Europe population growth rate: 0.098%
JW publisher growth rate: 0.7%

This means that the increase in JWs in Europe outstripped population growth by some 7 times!!

That is that JWs in Europe grew 7 times faster than the population in Europe.

Massive growth by any standards.

The problem with these figures is that aadriver is comparing growth of JWs in Europe against WORLD population growth. This gives a very false picture. In fact as a statistic it is completely useless. It tells us absolutely nothing whatsoever about how JWs have increased per capita in Europe.

Noah, you know that Gareth isn't really a witness right? At the very most he is or WAS a new study who likes to do web searches for information. No real JW would act as he and several others do on here.

yes my friends its true, The wt is losing followers at a fast rate compared to ten years ago. Why you ask? Well because the young jw's jump on the info highway and find out the history of the shady wt org in aprox 5 minutes.At this rate folks all the kh's will be nearly empy in 5 to ten years.There will be only old timers left sitting around wondering what the heck they're still doing there!!!!Them poor sapps!!!

Growth is moot if you are losing folks at the same time anyone who does acct knows that-
all jw are doing is replacing folks like a good Amway program does

Garath I admit the population is not as much as I thought, however whatever way you read it, the work has almost ground to a stop.
JWs have spent hundreds of millions of hours calling on the same people week after week. They are not even keeping most of their own kids in let alone bringing in people from the doors.

Look at the figures:

Europe population growth rate: 0.098%
JW publisher growth rate: 0.7%

JWs in Europe are growing at 7 times the rate of the European population!

That is NOT grinding to a stop by any standards. It is strong growth.

I don't know why they would want to brag about numbers anyway, the bible says narrow is the road and few that find it. The bigger they get the less likely they are to find it.

Garath in 1974 the society had 14% growth. Now that was impressive.
Except it was a growth based on lies, as the reason so many came in was because the society were teaching 1975 as the end of the system.

0.7% growth is pathetic.

Say the society opened up a new land to preach, where 10 million people live.
The first year there are 2 publishers, the next year there are 3. Wow that is a 50% increase. So 3 publishers in a land with 10 million people. Can you see when we are talking of small numbers percentages are useless.
Look at the true picture in Europe. There are I believe around 900,000,000 in Europe and JWs manage to find an extra 5000 publishers. This of course includes their children who become publishers.
Bottom line is they can't even keep them in, for as they grow up to be adults two thirds of them leave.
As I said the society is dying a slow death in Europe.

You can't argue the figures away by *imagining* how they could be even better than they are.

JWs grew 7 times the population rate in Europe last year. At this time 'nominal Christianity' is IN DECLINE.

That is good news for the good news!
