I don't know if this topic has ever been covered, but I heard that an elder in a European country rejected a J.W.'s claim that the org asks for stocks & shares in their version (English) of the WT each year. The elder was appalled at the idea (stock market gambling etc.) and said that such a request had never appeared in his version of the WT.
Every November, the org issues this type of statement in the English version of the Watchtower: "Stocks and Bonds: Stocks and bonds may be donated to Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania as an outright gift or Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania may be named as a Transfer on Death beneficiary."
Can anyone confirm that this statement does not appear in WT's in some/all other European languages? I thought 8m JW's got the same info in the same WT's?
