They are holding on but age and obedience is shrinking..........the JW stay at home prospects, the mothers and wives ... was the feeding ground for those who went out in field service .
You convert the wife, she converts the kids and maybe it's a trifecta and you get the hubby as well. Then it turned around and converts not so much anymore but born-ins you bet!
Religion has diminished in importance so the witness world is shrinking. The quality of conversions is no longer dependable. Nut cases or kooky would be today's description for converts.
The reliance on born-ins when 60% are dis-associating is also a failure. Except for a few third world countries.
It's over for the JW's. It's over for the Christian scientists and dozens of other sects. When the Catholic Church is wounded and losing followers......... it's over for organized religion. Except for the Christians that prove helpful to a community Food drives, clothing drives, day care.......... help stabilize a community. The JW's do nothing for a community on an organized basis.
