    I posted a link to this thread over on the site where I was discussing things with this other brother. He is from Australia and he seems to think the society doesn't make anything on their literature.

    I told him to check out this link, but I don't know if he will or not. He thinks that everything that is made just covers the cost of printing the magazines. He says that in his congregation nobody has EVER told them they have to put the money collected in field service back in the box.

    Now I know we have at least one poster here from Australia. How does your congregation work this arangement out? Have you had a talk about donating when you pick up the literature, and then putting all donations in field service back in the donation box?

    Just curious.

    Hi Andyman,

    Down here in the Perth area, the friends are told to pay for their literature when they pick it up, and also to put all contributions in the box, the same as it is in the States. Your friend must be mistaken.

    What procedure did the first century christians advised when they placed magazines?

    Hi Roamingfeline;

    Well I tried to tell him what was said over here, provide him a link, don't know if he read it or not, but all he could do is call me an "apostate" who was trying to make the society look bad.

    He seems to think that the society doesn't make any money on things they just break even or something.

    Oh well, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink!

    Take care.

    I am going to try and post a link here to the brothers first post telling me how it is done in his congregation in Australia. Hope it works.


    Take care.

    Sure you can! The WTBTS does it all the time! Just tell the horse he will DIE DIE DIE!!!!!!! And that his Mummy(Australia)/Mommy (USA) won't love him anymore!

    It's the most greedy, selfish, tight-fisted, anal-retentive, self-aggrandizing organization that has ever been vomited upon the earth!

    I sure hope the GB are reading this! EFF YOU are reading this GB...well, message delivered.

    And now, courtesy of Johnny Cash, the song San Quentin reworked just slightly.

    Watchtower, you've been livin' hell to me
    You've busted me since nineteen sixty three
    I've seen 'em come and go and I've seen 'em die
    And long ago I stopped askin' why

    Watchtower, I hate every inch of you.
    You've cut me and you've scarred me thru an' thru.
    And I walked out a wiser, weaker man;
    Mister Congressman, you can't understand.

    San Quentin, what good do you think you do?
    Do you think I'll be different when you're through?
    You bent my heart and mind and warped my soul,
    your stone walls turn my blood a little cold.

    Watchtower, may you rot and burn in hell.
    May your walls fall and may I live to tell.
    May all the world forget you ever stood.
    And may all the world regret you did no good.

    Watchtower, I hate every inch of you.
