Carmel, you missed the point I was making.
Here is an example, I should have given it in the first place.
When reading the lead comment, someone who is doubting, but afraid
to leave the truth may begin to read. They will get to the part where
These are just a few of the many thousands of "stories they
have made up" to expoit their sheep. But why? Nearly $1,000,000,000.00 dollars is why."
And they will say to themselves, "thats not true, the WTBTS is not
like Jimmy Swaggart, the GB doesnt drive around in Rolls Royce's and
I've never heard any evidence that any of them are wealthy."
And here is the point THEY WILL STOP READING AND THINK "THE BROTHERS
ARE RIGHT AND THESE PEOPLE MUST BE APOSTATES AND THEY LIE" and the
opportunity to help someone escape will be lost.
Whether money is needed to keep power over the "flock" or not is
irrellevant. Power is their aim, and money is a tool and a side
The point is, $1,000,000,000.00 is NOT why they mislead and mistreat
their flock, which the above statement says. Power, control, pride and
haughtiness are the EVIDENT reasons.
By sticking to EVIDENT reasons, we can help others to see the truth
about the WTBTS which I am sure you agree is most important.
Also Carmel, you stated
"Money is a measure of power ...
Yes Money is A measure of power not THE measure of power.
If that were true, then Ghandi was powerless.
Also, If you believe the bible, what about Jesus.
"nowhere to lay his head" but he started a movement that is "followed"
2000 years later and millions regard his words with reverence.
Power but no material wealth.
Sorry, but they are not interchangable.
