    When was that first preached , with the book Babylon The Great Has Fallen Gods Kingdom Rules ,the 1970`s ? where they claimed that false religion had a fall in 1919 and that it was continuing to that day . in the 1970`s .?

    However today we see not Babylon The great that is falling ,but the Jehovah`s witnesses religion that are on the decline ,selling off branches , kingdom Halls in one place after another throughout the earth .

    And only a couple of years ago they were predicting they would be needing thousands of kingdom halls to be built for the expected influx of new worshippers ? where are they ? they never eventuated ,except their is a massive sell off of Jehovah`s witness real estate today throughout the world.

    Expansion is a sign your business/religion is doing well and is progressing .

    Cutting back as the JW religion is now doing is a sure sign your business model /religion is having serious troubles .

    Sure they do....

    Eg. The glossary on Jw library

    "the religious entity called “Babylon the Great” is described in Revelation as a prostitute because she has consorted with the rulers of this world for power and material gain.​—"

    Downplayed, for sure, I reckon, but without quantitative data to back it up.

    Yes the false prophet/profit Watchtower Corporation should be included in as a member of Babylon the Great as being identified as false religion.

    To be exact it was and still is a corrupt lying religoius publishing house.

    (Regardless of the value of their assets, don't forget.)

    Glad to see more and more people cluing in to that, BTW.

    Per WTS complicated opinion, Babylon the Great, all false religions, WTS only true religion

    Subset: Christendom represented by BTG's daughters

    For example, after the Council of Nicaea, Constantine, who was present at the council, ordered Arius, a dissenting priest, into exile because Arius refused to acknowledge Jesus as God. Later, under Emperor Theodosius I (379-395 C.E.), the Catholic Church, as the contaminated form of Christianity came to be known, became the official religion of the Roman Empire. Historians refer to pagan Rome as having been “Christianized” in the fourth century. The truth is that by that time an apostate form of Christianity had joined the pagan religious organizations of the Roman Empire as members of Babylon the Great.

    Babylon the Great is seen as consorting with the UN, "the image of the scarlet-colored wild beast"

    scarlet-colored wild beast

    What does the Bible foretell will be the final destiny of this globe-encircling harlot? In symbolic language, the book of Revelation describes her destruction at the hands of political elements. These are symbolized by “ten horns” that support the United Nations, “a scarlet-colored wild beast” that is the image of Satan’s bloodstained political system.​Revelation 16:2; 17:3-16.*

    Jehovah will destroy “the great prostitute” by means of “the ten horns” of “a scarlet-colored wild beast.” That figurative wild beast represents the United Nations.
