Next Week's Watchtower Study Analysis

Help others to endure, hey?
Well, let's see now. Unbiblical shunning policies, child baptism which forces a child into a contract in which he/she has NO idea really of what they're doing. Horrible blood policies and a stone-age two witness rule. And then they bring up a study article in enduring in difficult times.
Yes, they are so ''victim blamey''
I believe this ‘helping others to endure difficult times’ (persecution, etc.) is really all about trying to get the rank & file JWs to ‘help’ people out there who are suffering financially because they were talked into not getting decent jobs/careers.. This is the main reason, in my opinion.
By helping out I mean being targeted to give money and whatever other material aid you can think of. They don’t care if you got knocked for working.
I said years ago that something like this was bound to happen with all these pioneers and others who never wanted to work!! I’m just so glad that I’m not around any of them now. I’m certainly not interested in being the answer to anybody’s prayer because they listened to faulty teachings and bad advice years ago!

All these things are coming "home to roost'' now. As they were saying a few weeks ago on Six Screens.
Yes.. This is a culmination of decades of Witnesses who hardly ever worked - instead preferring the ministry. They are now reaching retirement age. Add to that people kicked out of bethels and sitting in congregations expecting handouts.. Oh, let’s not forget the other assorted JWs who were afraid of the workforce and ‘couldn’t hack it’ plus those with ‘serious issues’, etc., etc.
What we have here are too many needy people all in one place with too few responsible working people there - and a religion with no social programs.
This isn’t like the old days where people chipped in and bought a bag of groceries for somebody until they got back on their feet. These people are never getting back on their feet and expect handouts for the rest of their lives.
This is an appalling situation there and I’m Glad I got out ages ago.
Don't worry. The WT is it's own worst enemy. As I always relate.
