Sunday's Watchtower Study March 18... Another Money Appeal

    I do like the thought of them squirming uncomfortably because the "the money of the greater number is cooling off" and their "money waters are drying up" but, it is strange that if they are in such desperate need for money they would not put a bit more effort into customer satisfaction and figuring out why people leave or stop donating - but they don't seem to care at all about the lost donations from lost sheep. So could they really be that hard up if they're still not willing to care about that to actually do more?

    Like doing more to prevent unhappy, disatisfied customers/members leaving in the first place by finding out why they are leaving and making genuine efforts to make the congregation experience a more positive one - but they don't.

    Making more of a genuine effort to woo back lapsed members. There is sooooo much more they could do without resorting to what amounts to religious bullying, threats and emotional blackmail to woo back the old customer base - but they don't.

    The so-called "witnessing" recruiting that gets done now is pathetic, yeilding pathetic results and yet that doesn't appear to bother them either. Not exactly the attitude of an org in dire straights.

    We need more for doing less. Send your money to Jehovah....he needs it bad. The costs of running the universe is going up every year.

    Why does anyone give a penny without the transparency of knowing how they spend the money?

  • Crazyguy

    These guys are just plain sick! They probably need less money now then ever before except for lawsuits. I mean they print very little have less people working for them in house and are selling off all their properties and even Kingdom Halls.

    Only reasons for money is to pay for the lawsuits and more investments.

    somthing to ask your wife what are they doing with the money saved from not printing 100s of millions of awakes and watchtowers each year ?

    where has the money gone from selling all the property in new york off

    also if you go onto the watchtowers own site it will tell you that in 2012 they sold 20 branch offices around the world off

    I betcha there will be a big sell off of Kingdom Halls way before they really need to. It sounds like they are balls to the walls grabbing all the money they can get, while the getting is good.

    I think long before they need are in dire straits the selling will really begin in earnest, pull the carpet right from under the JDubs before they even know what hit them and before any major protests start happening and they run into lots of legal red tap.

    The sell off should only gain momentum.

    I'm sure the Governing Body are also raking it in personally$$$$ in bank accounts with all this cash coming available.

    In a couple of years all KH gone to the highest bidder, with loyal brain dead JWs getting their spiritual fix from host of actors and public speakers who don't vary from their GB approved script.

    How does less printing, less "special" pioneers, less circuit overseers, NO district overseers, less Bethelites, less branch locations, less New York buildings, less assembly days all add up to MORE money going out?

    they have to pay millions and millions to Google if they want to appear before the "apostate" results when you search"Jehovah" or "JWs" in google. Other millions to produce professional videos. And still other millions to internet security. I can't believe that poor educated JWs are able to secure without the help of "worldy" professionals

  • carla

    I don't think they can use the excuse that they need millions to produce the videos. They now have their own studios and equipment on site, don't pay the actors/anchors and so on. Besides there are literally millions of people who make pretty darn good videos in their own homes now with nothing more than their cell phones or cameras.

    Didn't someone here insist that the Org was "richer than its ever been before"?
