When will the JW Org count for nothing on the World Scene ?

    I was wondering if any of you experts on Statistics and Trends etc could answer the question above ?

    If you know how to do it, if you can extrapolate a true figure for the falling membership in Areas that are Internet connected, then we can say " By the year **** they will be so small in the Internet Regions that they will be on the brink".

    I have put this Topic in " Scandals and Cover Ups" because it seems to me they are trying to hide how many are leaving, and how few are joining in the areas mentioned. The non Internet places will not contribute much in the way of $$$, so however the figures change for them, up, or down, makes little difference. I may be wrong, they may have some growth in even Internet areas, but no growth in real terms compared to population growth is a sign they are failing.

    Anyone have a stab at this ?

    Some suggestions that this is already the reality in the thread below.

    WT bOrganization already "counts for nothing" to anyone in the world EXCEPT:

    1) JW' (because of their inflated opinion of themselves)

    2) Ex-JW's (because of the damage they have suffered ie, shunning, etc)

    3) Child abu$e Attorney$ (because it's all about the money!)

    No one else give a sh!t about them.

    Watchtower only cares about money. When their followers grow some sort of brain function and come to the conclusion that they have been scammed, then you will see great numbers of membership dropping off. It is a matter of time before more to wake up. And then there is those uber Dubs who will never wake up.

    Watchtower serves no purpose for society except for it self. People are starting to see thru their crap. Watchtower means nothing to the world except a good laugh about it's stupidity.

    Realistically they have always been just about nothing on the world scene.

    The only time the public hears about them is when they knock on their homes or someone dies in a hospital when they refuse a blood transfusion.

    Even those who are fully engage in the disfellowshipping work don't agree with the Watchtower. So what hope has some poor analyst got to extrapolate information from a dataset where the figures don't mean much? Watchtower keeps having new light. They can reinvent themselves to attract more followers.

    But Jesus did say:-

    (Matthew 7:13-14) . . .“Go in through the narrow gate; because broad and spacious is the road leading off into destruction, and many are the ones going in through it; 14 whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are the ones finding it.

    There is not enough information available to make an accurate prediction, though the last few years do suggest they are in decline in many developed nations. ‘Active’ JWs make up about 0.1% of world population, and more than half of them are in fewer than 10 countries. So they’re already not relevant in most of the world. Even in countries where they are (marginally) more prevalent, at least some of those who ‘report’ are ‘PIMO’, and would leave the denomination in a heartbeat if they weren’t trapped by emotional manipulation induced by the threat of shunning.

    I know of one senior JW in his 80,s, who cant or won't use zoom and hasn't been to a meeting since February. He still considers himself as one of the great crowd, but cant find anyone to talk to. Im sure he is not the only one, who has given up in a way to stay connected. As they continue to use zoom, more and more are starting to fade and hopefully waking up.
