On a previous post mamacita29 pointed up the low quality of new JW converts.
Is the quality falling even more as the society use lower than low meeting, talks, broadcasts etc.
When I was active initially the organisation and standards seemed totally different today. I have seen hard working intelligent elders fall by death or exhaustion. The younger generation that came along never really grasped responsibility hence shortage of good elders, never mind the watered down to almost nothing quality of meetings. It is not the same religion I first joined and I wonder what others think of the continuing erosion of quality, both members and content. Are the new recruits from the dregs of society or are intelligent ones still joining. I feel a lack of local leadership will lead to the collapse of org, aided by the Marx Brothers of the Governing Body and there less than convincing presentations. When the GB hid behind a publishing empire they seemed suitably distant and spiritual, now they lead an organisation in crises and lack of authority. Hundreds of ex bethelites released into the wild, and not having a good story to tell.
