I am translating jwfacts to Spanish. I am doing the "statistics" section.
Here are two graphs that show that the statistics have NEVER been worse for the Watchtower:
Quantity of hours required for 1 baptism: Note how low it went in 1974-1975, and note that 2016 is much higher than the slump of 1978... about double, to be exact. 2016 was a historical record in this statistic (higher is worse for Watchtower).
This stat is the baptisms as a percentage of the publisher average. Again, 2016 is worse than 1978... and it looks like the following years are going to be even worse!
(Of course, you may argue that this is just because it's harder to grow 8 million than 2 million, but still... the trend is pretty bad)...
So my conclusion is... the internet has been more devastating for Watchtower than what 1975 was.
What are your thoughts?
