I cannot think of ONE article written for Jehovah's Witnesses that deals with this important issue.
The Governing Body makes sure everyone looks after the GB's needs. The GB will be moving to their new Lakeside Estate in 3 years.
What about everyone else below the 8 GB and their wives???
People regularly live into their 70's and 80's.
I was told as a young girl, from the platform at Circuit Assemblies, District Conventions, Public talks, The Watchtower and all the other WT publications, that The Big "A" was right around the corner. This kept me in perpetual fear. Also, I was told, it was my duty as a baptized JW to put the GB's Kingdom interests first.
The WT followers were to give their money, time and lives to 'Mother'.
Now in 2013, most all the adults I knew in the 1950's are dead. Many put their lives on hold for 'Mother'.
Some planned, on their own, for retirement, and were able to enjoy their 'golden years'. Others, not a happy story.
Since the Watch Tower Organization likes to micro manage it's 7 1/2 million members, where are the articles to help their 'people' plan better lives?
Any 'Estate Planning" is ONLY written with the view of taking money, property and sellable assets from its members.
Have you read any Watch Tower literature that encourages YOU to plan for your retirement?
