I am not a Jehovahs Witness, but I have family members who are. And one of them is my cousin. We talk now and again, and I love him very much, both him and his wife, and also my aunt and uncle, his parents. For as long as I remember, they have been JWs, and I have usually tried NOT to discuss their belief with them, as I am a Christian, and see JW as a cult where things are not at all nice. My cousin have, since childhood, had lots of anxieties, and are still sick. I blame the religion!
Anyways, we were talking the other day, and sadly came in to the 1975 "harmageddon", we all know that never happened.....again.....as it is not the first time this have been talked about. I mean, the socalled harmageddon......
I used to study JW, ( only because I needed to know what to say to JW when they came knocking, not because I wanted to become one!!!) and I have read a lot of stories and books about what happened in 1975. One thing I remember, was so many went bancrupt, or sold their properties, giving the money to the WT
Can anyone tell me if the WT told their members to sell, and give them the money? I can remember I was angry when I read about the WT getting so much money, having told the members they did not need money after the harmageddon, since everything would be new, and no money were needed. I remember saying to my husband that " why do the WT need that money, if money was not to be an issue after the socalled harmageddon??"
I am truly thankful to anyone who may have an answer. Because I said to my cousin that so many sold their properties, giving the money to WT, and he of course said that was not right. He may be right, and that is why I ask.
I will be reading here, and hope to get back all the info I once had. Life came in the way, and now I need to refresh my memory, so I can talk about things I KNOW, not just hardly remember :)
