"Now things are different. It is archaic, for JWs to be bringing literature door to door,,very limited information, expensive, the paper waste, gas and hopefully JWs may gradually value their productivity of their 'time' more."
Really? In what respect are things "different" now that we are living in the Information Age for people living here in the US? What about the people living in the world in places like Nepal, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Guam? Or the folks that are living in Venezuela, Bolivia, Madagascar and Rwanda? Here in the US, more people are being connected to the 'net via broadband lines, but where high-speed internet access is unavailable, folks continue to connect via dial-up accounts. Keep in mind though that unless those using dial-up are willing to forego sleep times to surf the 'net late a night, not much surfing is likely to take place during the week, if at all, since most of the homes here in the US have a single phone line, and cannot afford a second "fax" line what with the expense of the cell phone that family members use with text plans sans data plans. Compare what things I just said here about the US (which things are also applicable to Canada and Great Britain btw) with other lands in the world that might be able to use dial-up accounts, but which get daily an average of some six hours of electricity, where its inhabitants are charging their one cell phone.
"The old methods of the Watchtower are outdated, of no value. The third-world areas with not much computers access, The Watchtower will not thrive in such areas too long as it will not truly help such areas with their needs and people there may only go in relatively briefly but out even more quickly as the Watchtower will only deal with them harshly to meet the cultic demands."
These lands (some of which are specifically mentioned above) have no data plan for surfing the 'net, and in many lands, including here in the US, many folks read books, magazines and newspapers for research and to keep up with local and world events, renting DVDs for entertainment in lieu of buying movie tickets. Quite frankly, bringing Bible-based literature is not passe in the US and it certainly isn't passe in lands that either have no access to dial-up or broadband lines or cannot afford internet access. But here you are contradicting yourself when you acknowledge that there is no computer access in "third-world areas."
The striving of Jehovah's Witnesses worldwide is to reach the folks living in all lands and islands of the sea for a witness as they are committed to doing before the end comes, since lives are at stake and the time left for accomplishing this most important work is reduced, and the many dissenting opinions that are being disseminated on the 'net in recent years had led to an urgent need for more regular pioneers to help where the need is greater as the love that some brothers and sisters once had for their neighbor has cooled, so that they took their hands off the plow and became disenchanted with their spiritual lives and no longer have an interest in supporting the heavenly Kingdom government of the Christ, as they selfishly long for the life that they left behind in "Egypt" (Numbers 14:3).
In fact, these disgruntled ones murmur and use the 'net to pressure others to accompanying them back to Egypt as they wish to turn back to pursuing those "weak and beggarly" things they had done before leaving Egypt. (Luke 9:62; Hebrews 10:38, 39; Galatians 4:9) You see, in the world that they supposedly left behind -- "Egypt -- one could worship their god in their own way, like that Samaritan woman at John 4:22-24, who had the Pentateuch, who had the first five books of the Bible, who felt she was worshipping the true God, Jehovah, but in reality the god that she was worshipping didn't really exist, her god being a nonexistent god, a god that she called "Jehovah," but not the God of truth. My God -- the true God, Jehovah -- this Samaritan woman didn't know at all.
God had revealed so much more knowledge about himself over the years in the remaining 34 books of the Hebrew Scriptures than this woman knew, not unlike it is today when we now have the Greek Scriptures, even more has been revealed about God that has been obscured by the "man of lawlessness" so that there are people worshipping an unknown god, a trinitarian god that just doesn't exist called "Jesus. Notice how Jesus explained things to the Samaritan woman at John 4:19-24:
"The woman said to him: 'Sir, I perceive you are a prophet. Our forefathers worshiped in this mountain; but you people say that in Jerusalem is the place where persons ought to worship.' Jesus said to her: 'Believe me, woman, The hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you people worship the Father.'
"'You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, because salvation originates with the Jews. Nevertheless, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the true worshipers will worship the Father with spirit and truth, for, indeed, the Father is looking for suchlike ones to worship him. God is a Spirit, and those worshiping him must worship with spirit and truth.'" (John 4:19-24, NWT)
Now the Samaritan woman believed in the same law of Moses in which the Jews also believed, so why does Jesus tells her, "You worship what you do now know"? Because in her religion, this her understanding about Jehovah God was partial, incomplete, distorted, and only based on five books of the Bible, so what little bit that she knew would have been unacceptable to God, and she actually worshipped a god that she really didn't know.
Jehovah's Witnesses worship the true God, Jehovah, and when God's spirit clearly began to operate upon five (5) men back in 1876, God used those dedicated Bible students to reveal even more about Himself than had been known or had been taught about Him:
Charles T. Russell, who had been associated with the Congregational Church, had become acquainted with Jonas Wendell (1815-1873), who had been associated with the Second Adventist Church; Nelson H. Barbour (1824-1906), who had been associated with the Millerites Adventists; George Stetson (1814-1879), who had been associated with the Advent Christian Church; Henry Grew (1781-1862), who had been associated with the Orthodox Church; and George Storrs (1796-1879), who had been associated with the Methodist Church.
When it became evident that God had been blessing Russell's efforts to champion Bible truth, Russell took the lead in 1879 in publishing the Watchtower magazine, and although he was an imperfect man and what things he published were not inspired, God's blessings continued to be on his work so that it was discerned that it had become the instrument and sole channel of communication through which God was using to gather the remaining ones of the anointed and to make whatever changes or adjustments it deemed necessary to nourish the household of faith with spiritual food at the proper time so that the organization kept multiplying.
Jesus told the woman that God is looking for "true worshippers," those that would worship Him "with spirit and truth," so the god of many Jehovah's Witnesses that have fallen away is not Jehovah, but is a nonexistent god, so, in effect, that worship goes to Satan the Devil, who accepts all worship not based on truth.
We've got to worship a God that is known by us, and merely attaching ourselves to a name like "Jehovah" -- or in the case of those calling themselves "Christians" today, the name, "Jesus" -- and saying that our god is the God of the Bible, according to what Jesus told that Samaritan woman, would not be enough, would it?
God must be known to us in an accurate and true and clear way; otherwise, we could become just like that Samaritan woman at John 4:22-24, a worshipper of a god that is unknown to us, and many folks today are like that, and thus they make clear that their god is actually the Devil because of their /not/ worshiping God in truth.
You talk about paper waste and gas, and while there are real costs attached to publishing books and magazines, what they contain are essentially miniature sermons, limited only by the focus given to the particular topic the book or magazine covers, which serve to whet the appetite for even more books and magazines that those conscious of their spiritual need devour again and again, and such are still ideally suited for conducting research on various Bible-related topics in places where no internet access exists just as they were before the Information Age began.
Although the internet has been around since 1969 when Al Gore invented it, by 1991 the web became global, paving the way for folks to conduct research of all kinds on computer networks that began to spring up and to obtain music, form chat rooms and send text messages. But I'm not sure if by "Information Age" you meant the "Digital Computer Age," which Age began in 1976 with the introduction of the first personal computer called the "Apple I," followed by the "IBM Personal Computer," or "PC," in 1981, and during the ten years before global internet networks became a reality, the "sneaker" networks, using floppy disks as their backbone, were all the rage, since the real "Information Age" began when the telegraph was born in 1837. (BTW, what I said here about Al Gore and the internet is an old joke; maybe you've have heard it before.)
I didn't understand what it was you meant when you stated, "... but out even more quickly as the Watchtower will only deal with them harshly to meet the cultic demands." Unlike a cult, Jehovah's Witnesses do not have a human leader, like Jim Jones ("People's Temple") or David Koresh ("Branch Davidians") were both cult leaders, for Jehovah's Witnesses are Christians that follow the Lord Jesus Christ, and so we do not follow any man. But, still what "cultic demands" do I, as one of Jehovah's Witnesses, make on anyone? What "cultic demands" does the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society make on anyone? What "cultic demands" does "the faithful and discreet slave" make on anyone? Lastly, what "cultic demand" does the governing body of Jehovah's Witnesses make on anyone?
