It gives nothing, it only takes.
It preaches the end but continues to turn its financial ‘winnings’ into bricks and mortar investments and enjoys the prestige of a worldwide portfolio worth billions. The constant postponement of Armageddon only helps this business model so the administration is happy. At HQ all the “spiritual” front men need to come up with each generation; is new propaganda to justify the delay... this difficulty of having to weasel out a credible excuse every thirty years or so for the governing body; is nothing compared to the real sufferings of the true believers in the rank and file.
The average JW is one who has succumbed to the need to be told what to do, and who feels secure in the Watchtower community shared-hope fostered by its leaders. The fixated vision presented by them is that this global system, controlled by Satan, will soon end in mass slaughter which only Jehovah’s Witnesses will survive.
In any context this is a prescription for paranoia.
To hold such views is very unhealthy. It is a recipe for serious mental conflict and is never resolved by the arrival of the promised paradise. The usual accommodation is found by the believer going whole-soul into the shared delusion, putting logic on the back burner and supporting the leaders of the cult.
It is demanded that JWs avoid higher education, worldly ambition, avoid socialising with non-JWs, and that they shun close family members who disagree with the Watchtower. The result is that millions have led lives stifled by the overbearing, unreasonable and untruthful demands of the governing body.
I would say that the JW organisation has brought nothing to the world except life sapping, paranoid belief, causing untold harm to millions. What do you think?
