While a mass exodus may not happen, it will not be easy to spot if it does either.
Going back to the WCG, the exodus of two-thirds of their group happened in stages over a period of a decade. It started first with the drop in funds. No one in the WCG knew that the exodus from their religion had happened until it did.
@_Morpheus...Believing something is impossible is how Titanics sink and Hinderburgs blow up. How many times have people said something was impossible and yet the impossible still happened? How many Americans are still shocked that Trump won the presidency over Hillary? Fairy tales may not happen, but nightmares do come true, especially the ones people deny will ever occur.
A case in point: leadership in the LDS church (the Mormons) recently adopted critical analysis of their religion's history. Over the past year or so they have published official statements backing up Mormon-apostate claims such as Smith having had a large number of wives, 40, including one as young as 14. They also affirmed that Smith never used the spectacles he claimed were hidden with the gold plates to translated the BoM but instead used a "seer stone" that he dropped into a hat as he sat hidden behind hanging bedsheets while dictating the contents of the plates to a scribe. They also officially admitted that the Book of Abraham cannot be imediately translated from the Egyptian papyri Smith claimed was the source, as well as formally acknowledged that the events detailed in the Book of Mormon may not be historical. All these points, once the fodder of Mormon heretics is now official LDS teaching. The result? Mormon growth has declined lower than it may have ever been in its history, with a significant drop in current membership especially among Mormon men. LDS officials originally stated that the downward trend couldn't last much longer, but it keeps on going down with no end in sight.
The JW religion may not disappear, there may never be a mass exodus, but never say never. The Governing Body just has to say the wrong thing at the wrong time and CLICK, it's over. We will all have to wait and see, but it's definitely not impossible.
