    i just wonder about reasoning in this organization. If you have arrangement that is not working and Gods chariot has moved on. And you have told every One there is only a biblical generation to do things. Why do you spend 30, 40 or 50 years telling members we must wait for Jehovah the whole time? Why didn't they do something decades ago?

    Answer = because they had literature to sell and distribute

    Proclaiming Jesus has returned and a New Order World under god was about to commence was just such a good and alluring proclamation to make in attracting attention to the publications the WTS made and to the organization itself.

    Problem is that core doctrine of the JWS is not supported in the bible.

    It's simple - power and money. The longer they can keep those and keep it coming in, nothing is going to change. Once a JW finally starts thinking, and ask honest questions they are accused of apostasy. If they don't shut up about it they are kicked out. That's where their shunning comes into play because once a person is kicked out of that cult, everyone is to not speak to that person until they see the error of their ways, and come back, that is if they are even allowed to return to the fold. One of the famous sayings that J.F. Rutherford would say is that religion is a snare and a racket, and I strongly believe that he was including the Watchtower in that.
