I am starting a business right now. I have big aspirations and really feel that I will have success in my endeavor, and I have my reasons for that.
That is faith.
I have faith that I have what it takes to make this business succeed. Faith really can move mountains, it is true.
On the other hand, what if I was searching out a business partner or potential investors. What if I laid out my business plan and it was rejected. I HAVE FAITH that it will work, and I believe my business plan is rock solid!
The fact is, some people just will not accept my business plan as legit for the long term. They don't feel it has enough for them to make that leap of faith and put some eggs in my basket.
Again, I really know my business will work. I have crunched the numbers, I know I can execute. So what I do is blackmail my potential investors into investing into my business.
This is the way the Watchtower and the Bible in general runs things.
It isn't right not matter what the outcome.
People who are born into the Watchtower have no choice but to have faith in the Business. Their families they were unwillingly born into are held over their heads as colaterole for having faith in their message, their projections on the future. It is similar for people who were not born in because of the tactics used to coerce them into the religion. They give them friends and a sense of security, but in order to keep it you have to remain in faith.
It's blackmail from top to bottom, and that's a sure sign of corruption in the deepest sense.
