I would hazard a guess that their are thousands who profess to be Jehovah`s Witnesses around the world who only attend the Memorial ,Marriages or Funerals. Never to be seen at other times of the year.And certainly give no support monetary or otherwise.
Which explains the difference in Active JW`s around 8 million as against the memorial attendance of about 20 million .
With even a third of these 8 million withdrawing their support say in the next 5 years how many of those extra 12 million hangers on would drop away.?
I know this is all speculation ,but isn`t the trend already here that the writing is on the wall for the eventual demise of the JW religion as we know it today ?
