While the number of JW's reported every year is still growing, it doesn't seem to really be growing as fast as they once did.
Do you think that they will eventually level off and then decline? Perhaps to nothing?
Some of this was based on the stats on this page I was reading: http://www.jwfacts.com/watchtower/statistics.php Granted, statistics can be presented in whatever light the author is trying to represent (look at the way the JW's massage their statistics to always be favorable).
Of particular interest was their deductive math to find the number of people leaving yearly, which is pretty considerable.
A popular PEW research study that lots of you probably heard about a couple years ago stated that JW's have the lowest family retention rate of any other mainstream religion.
Combine the aging JW populace, the number of people leaving every year, the slowing growth rate numbers, the mindset held by many to "not have children in this system", the children that are had are only staying JW's roughly 1/3rd of the time according to statistics, the end never coming... add 20, 30 years? Could the JW's actually, for all intents and purposes, die out?
