    During COVID-19 crisis our hall decides to double the amount sent to HQ from our local account. The resolution is unanimously supported, no questions asked. Has anyone else had this happen?

    It includes the insurances that were separate so that should be it. We were told what the resolution was but they forgot to take a vote. I think ours tripled.

    My wife's congregation just gave a $7k lump sum to the Branch. They were doing so well with donations and keeping under budget that they had saved enough for 6 months of expenses rather than the recommended 3 months. Ergo, ZOINK, Watchtower just snatches it from under them and nobody makes a peep.

    Let's review.

    If an individual JW has extra funds, SHAME ON HIM! He's not depending on Jehovah.

    If a congregation has extra funds, SHAME ON THEM! They're hoarding and need to share.

    If the Watch Tower Society has an abundance of funds because they shamed everyone else's money into their own pockets, PRAISE JAH! Our Heavenly Father has certainly blessed our efforts!

    The resolution was not unanimous in my area.

    I sent an email to the secretary specifically stating NOT IN FAVOR. Good Lord, you would have thought that it was the end of the world judging by the s--t that hit the fan. I was only too willing to state the reasons why I was not in favor of increasing the financial load on now unemployed R&F thanks to COVID-19. No new building, no remodels, no CO's traveling. Oh, but the CO's still have expenses said the elder. I replied with a WT quote that the FIRST responsibility for financial help was family, then gubmint programs, then finally the congregation IF the other resources had been tried and exhausted. Greedy bas---ds!

    The WTS has millions stacked away but the gullible, naive JWS adherents are quite ignorant of that fact.

    If local congregations and individual JWs are willing to donate more than they did before the virus hit (or probably even just the same amount), then JWism will become an e-religion. I think the org is monitoring the situation closely to see what's going to happen to its income stream. If donations don't drop off, then it can sell off all Kingdom Halls and claim the scene of the world is changing, we're near the end, etc.

    I bet JWs would be willing to donate more to keep the situation as it is now - not physically going to meetings, no door-to-door, etc.
