It's worth thinking about - what will they do if their cash flow virtually dries up?
Would they "turn on" the friends and try to "punish" them by threatening to close assembly halls and drop the Awake completely?
Could Witnesses in western nations fade away from the "ministry" if there is almost nothing left to offer at the doors?
If they have failed to maintain their 'scheme of doctrine' across many years, could we see a rapid deflation of the organization's
structure? Would they switch Circuit Overseers to once a year visits?
If they really think like a corporation, could they quietly shut down, after the income's gone?
I have little doubt that they could survive for many years by selling off assets, but can they face this tactic without their morale
collapsing? Is their morale beginning to ebb, if we hear elders and circuit overseers making comments about the "Society
being bled white" or losing 160, 000 publishers a year?
Can they continue effectively with third world expansion, if their cash flow dwindles, coming from rich western nations?
Could, one day, they just give up, like Armstrong's church?
It's getting interesting - and clearly, something is happening......
