    oNE `HEALTH AND WEALTH' church provies career advice etc.

    should a kh provide such useful services?

    should, could, would.... isn't the concern of the WTS.

    Rather raking in the largest amount of $$$$ for the least amount of organizational output is all that is desired.

    As for taxes.... give Caesar what is his, for YOU cannot be drinking the cup of Jehovah and the cup of demons; YOU cannot be partaking of "the table of Jehovah" and the table of demons. No one can slave for two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stick to the one and despise the other. YOU cannot slave for God and for Riches

    In theory, I suppose religions should have a philanthropic component.

    In reality, would it really be a good thing for jw/wts to have more poor, hungry, disabled people to love bomb? Kind of like Scientology and NarcAnon.

    From a business perspective, if they do not create value for society, then they should lose their finances. People should never pay into something that does not create value, and if no one pays for them, they will stop being able to function.

    Of course they should and many jw's I know would weelcome it. Problem is in the greedy eyes of Brooklyn the only useful service is field service....

    Yes they should but they won't. time I received strong cancelling simply for reviewing someone's resume for them after the meeting. Well, it was someone's bible student and they handed it to me after the meeting and told me they had a job interview that week. Well I had a flight the next morning, so I briefly reviewed it, suggested a few changes and that was all. Well for those of you that don't know, they have centers where people can get that type of assistance and it's not the KH and I should have known better as a regular pioneer. Anyway, the person got the job and eventually did get baptized but I don't think she is active anymore.

    I thought they did provide useful employment advice........become window cleaners ,do not get an education and torment your soul with money, (but if you do educate yourself keep it between us and you and we will use you up at Bethel and piss you off when finished with you ..EXCEPT if you become a lawyer ...oh Yes (salivating ) we can always use you!)
