Shouldn't the WTBTS have more than 7 million followers after 140 years of preaching?

by RULES & REGULATIONS 26 Replies latest watchtower beliefs


    After 140 years of preaching and millions of books, magazines, and tracts, all the WTBTS has to show is a measly 7 million members. The Mormons, Baptists, Pentecostals and many other religions have more members without the preaching work.

    In your opinion, is 7 million members way too many for all the odd beliefs, doctrines and practices ? Or, should be more members since they have had over 140 years of being in the religion business?

    Jehovah only wants those with the right heart condition

    Yes, Jesus has chosen a very poor Public Relations Team.

    Satan is evidently(TM) much better at screening the candidates who can really accomplish a membership drive.

    That crafty Devil really has some machinations up his sleeve.

    Acts 2:17 - spirit is poured out on all people

    John 3:15 - anyone who believes

    Universal - Inclusive - not EXclusive -

    Every 24 hours 122,000 new Christians are baptized globally

    that works out to 44,530,000 each year , or over 455 million

    each year baptized as Christians, world wide, in all denominations.

    Jehovah's Witnesess are not even a blip on this radar and are certainly

    no "great crowd" among these numbers.

    Satan's team 7 billion vs Jehovah's team 7 millon.

    Doesn't say much about Jehovah's credibility or judgement

    in making a crazy bet with Satan.

    A JW should ask themselves, if we are winning this war

    who in the hell is losing...I wonder what the Angels in

    heaven are thinking, damn Satan is kicking our asses. WE

    did all this work for a few measly folks and Satan, laughing

    his butt off people are flocking too him....

    The absolute blind arrogance of Jehovah's Witnesses to ignore the fact that there are well over 2 BILLION Christians in this world, all acceptable to God and all having a far superior grasp of what Christianity is than the WT Society ever told them. The bulk of Christians are not in America, they are in sub-Saharan Africa, and the Asian Pacific. This tiny American eccentric, governing body worshipping cult has no reasons to believe they are the sole channel God is dealing with and the idea is absurd on its face.

    Seems to me like they could have done better by advertising in the paper, having podcasts on the radio, posting sermons in widely read newspapers. Oh, but that's right, I forgot. There would be no one there with their hand out for them to put money in to send it to the cult.
