Just wondering if anyone receives compensation for their time spent on Topix?

You mean like.... do they count their hours? Cause from what I understand no one from the WTBTS is paid for their time in cash...unless you consider room, board and food as payment.

You don't know much about our organization, do you? No one gets paid for anything they do, not even the governing body. We all volunteer our time, and this forum is not part of our ministry anyway.

Does all the money given to the organization just evaporate?

How much does a cheap watchtower or awake cost to print, a few cents at most?

We know JWs don't get anything. Oh where oh where did all that money go?

JWs will never know.

and BTW...the organizations leaders won't tell anybody where all the money goes either. It a don't ask and they won't tell policy.

Remember that the society has different words to describe things. Most jw's do not get paid ,but the ones in more prominent positions or in the full time work get (GIFTS) instead of a salary.

Your spiritual leaders in New York believe that this forum is for apostates.

Read the 2013 Yearbook. You will read about the many Kingdom Halls and Branch facilities built and being built in Myanmar, just for starters. Start reading on page 148. This work is being done all over the world, and we are thrilled to share our material surplus so those in need can have appropriate meetings places for worship.

In the united states whenever a congregation would build a new hall or remodel one the only way the society would help is by offering the congregation a loan and in times past this loan included interest.

I wouldn't accept any money if they did.They can put the money to better use, like spreading the message about Jehovah GOD's Kingdom, thru Christ.

In the United States, congregations are seldom so poor that they cannot over time pay for their own Kingdom Hall. And why shouldn't they?

In other countries, such as Myanmar, they have no money to repay, so their Kingdom Halls are built with money that we in wealthier countries share with a central Kingdom Hall building fund. We love doing it. We do it gladly, willing, and with joy!

There is more happiness in giving than in receiving. Try it.

If they do, they should all be fired! This forum shows the religion for what it is, and it's not the "truth!"

When other religions do this you've called them a racket and a scam.

BTW- other religions work in these poor countries as well. None religious groups work in these poor countries as well.

I think I read somewhere that when you brag about your works in front of men, instead of waiting to be rewarded by
God the Father, you have already received your reward...enjoy!
