Any thought on this being purely "divine inspiration" needs to be knocked out the park. My spidy senses go with OrphanCrow here.
For those who toured the many branches around the world, there was one thing we were told on the tour. The Watchtower are in the know 3 years before it is printed, or something to that affect. We are talking about a multi billion dollar organisation here, this, in my opinion will give the watchtower the power to be in the know way before it is within the KH. Unfortunately, we thought this was a divine inspiration, when in fact money talks!
We can see history about to repeat itself, why? Because of the threat that the UK branch may lose it its tax exempt status, and the many lawsuits that are currently baring down on the org. Hence this year's assembly programme on the great trib and shunning. The org knows that there is trouble on the way, so needs to shore up and have those "voluntary contributions" rolling in.
In the words of the great late Goerge Carlin:
“Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money!”
