    During my Protestant Church membership, the sextant would come home to collect the membership fee for my family. We cannot avoid that. In addition there would be a passing of plate in every service, for money.

    In that manner the WT is far better.

    I used to pay for literature, but never put any money into the contribution box. I felt my time was more than enough.

    The number and amount of legacies left to Watchtower in Britain is significant. Some are six figure numbers.

    The very first WT said that "we will never beg nor solicit for funds....if the Almighty stops bringing in the funds, we will know his blessing is not on the work" (paraphrased)

    Funny how they have consistently begged and solicited for funds though...AND the "Almighty" has still NOT brought in enough funds! Hmmm....

    I wonder if Watchtower will soon carry an article that includes Bitcoin donations. Bitcoin will still be legal tender on the new system.

    Thanks for the research D1799, I appreciate the effort!

    2015, a remarkable increase of donation articles... also the year of the ARC...wow!
