"Religion is a snare and a racket!" - C T Russell.
You can now get into debt using credit cards to donation to the JW's
Some credit cards
PAY you to use them, as much % as your bank pays on your savings.
Great if you have the dough to pay every month. faithfully.
It does your personal accounting too. monthly statements where your money went.
Credit/debit cards are business methods.
Do not pay a business that has never provided a reliable product.

Good catch AndDontCallMeShirley
First time i seen cc machines was while a delegate to an International CONvention in Hamburg Germany back in 2006. That was probably one more thing to add to my growing list of concerns regarding the Organization. I was removed as an elder a few months later, and completely jumped ship summer of 07. Sooooo glad I dont have to deal with that anymore. I am with Dave Ramsey... nomore cc. I get mine paid off....no more. How about,that financial AND religious freedom?
Honestly im shocked that they are doing this now. If you told me this like 5 years ago I would have LMAO. It's such a shame that they are going that route but then again I figure anything is possible. As if they even need that much money?! with all the cutbacks and property being sold off you'd think that they need less money. I guess that's quite the contrary....they need more!
LITS, in other words the publishers are paying the worst kind of "Stupid Tax".
