    The food that Starbucks and McDonalds dish out is far more nutricious & life sustaining than anything that J.W.`s dish out as spiritual food , that sucks the life out of you .

    In the US many congregations share, but do you think that in timbuktoo there are 3 congregations to a hall? How about that KH across the crocodile infested river? How much do you think the borg will get from selling those kingdom halls?

    They are no longer able to support printing in India without money from the US branch. Probably the US branch is happy they don't have to send any more down that particular drain. Wonder what will happen to JWs in India?

    You can go to a cafe with a good conscience and enjoy the refreshment and probably good company. You can go to a Kingdom Hell and have your delusions reinforced...we have a choice.

    Well, He told me that the watchtower and awake was the number 1 and number 2 most circulated and read magazines in the world and how people think witnesses are this tiny group but they have 83,000 theocratic facilities and growing. He said they announced they dont have enough kingdom halls for all the people all over the world for people coming in to the truth and are building them as fast as they can so the size of the witnesses keeps growing.

    Ah smiddy! You just beat me to it!

    The thought of "junk food" dispensaries came to mind...

    You take every Bethelite serious. The everage knows as much as an everage publisher, he probably works harder that's all.

    I would be more interested in hearing about comparable religious holdings. S.D.A. or Mormons for example.

    Sorry for my poor scan. It is a chart of the GENERAL SURVEY OF ORGANIZATIONS for the S.D.A. church for the years 1863-2013. In 2013 they declare a total of 76,364 churches. I don't know if this is buildings or congregations. Total organizations are listed as 85,428 and again I don't know how this number is calculated but it is interesting just the same.

    Maybe before they got reduced each month. Even less likely after Jan 2016 when they are placed individually, and videos are used in the ministry instead.
