    Jehovah is supposed to be the Almighty God Creator of Heaven and Earth and no less the Universe ? Right ?

    A watchtower once said he is the ultimate chemist that figures he created the Universe.

    So for the love of me I cannot see why Jehovah God want`s YOUR hard earned money that you need to survive and exist in this world

    he has permitted and actually supports.Rom.13:1-7


    and how does that scripture compare with 2 : cor.4;4 And lets not forget Matt.4:8 to provide the 3 witness rule.

    The bottom line is why would the Almighty God ,the Creator of the Universe need YOUR MONEY to accomplish his purpose ?

    I don't care how many ways I can donate to the washtowel. I care about whether or not they deserve it. And, if they don't deserve it, it doesn't matter how many ways I could come up with to donate more--they aren't getting any.

    I was surprised to see one of their bullet points was a Rewards Program!. Upon clicking on it , it was for those with a lot of frequent flyer points or other rewards program to convert them to cards and send them in. This just seems so bottom of the barrel begging, but must be a way for paycheck to paycheck people to find some way to give it all away so they can slip into paradise.

    Why not?- there's a lot of unused 'loyalty points' about....


    Canadians hoarding $16B worth of unused loyalty points

    CBC News, Thursday, May 25, 2017

    Many signing up for multiple rewards programs but not using them to full advantage

    Canadians are signing up for an average of 12 loyalty programs, but they're not actively using them all and reaping the rewards, says a new study.

    We all love free stuff, so it's no surprise that Canadians are pledging allegiance to a growing number of loyalty programs. However, many of us are not bothering to cash in on our rewards.

    A new report from Bond Brand Loyalty estimates that collectors are sitting on a whopping $16 billion worth of unused rewards points — that works out to a value of $629 per collector.

    HI,

    As most of you know I haven't been a witness for too long, but I remember from the stage how many of the Brothers would give a talk and mention how the churches are installing ATM machines & how they are like the story of the money exchangers that Jesus threw out of the church. & See how greedy christiandom is...blah blah blah....now look whose calling the kettle black, remember when the org. talked about the Catholic churches with child molestation....JW land is always pointing judgmental fingers at others...but they were the ones that said if you point a finger at someone, how many fingers are pointing back at you ?

    The more the ORG. accuses other religions, it's just a matter of time that the org. is guilty of the same thing.

    They are begging just like other religions, it's how they package the message that the average JW accepts...they have no idea of how the org. really makes their money....flipping real estate...

    My wife went to the meeting Tuesday night and said the whole local needs was on donating. They accept cash, check, credit, debit, wills, inheritance, land, stocks etc. If its worth something, they want it. You can set up recurring donations if you don't want the hassle to remember to donate. The video showed kids dropping in their money and they even gave a tutorial on how to use the website to donate. And to top it all off the WT has a hotline you can call if you have any questions on how to donate!!

    Last time i checked the WT doesn't have a hotline to call about questions regarding the society or to answer bible questions.

    Greedy pigs is all they are.

    Dissassociated Lady- Thanks for the thread and the link. It's disgusting all the ways that the WT Society begs for money out of it's JW members. WT leaders have no conscience whatsoever. Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    The Watchtower Corporation has always been a commercialized fraud and if you think Jehovah has any connection to this organization you really need to read the bible.

    Particularly read up on false prophets and what the bible says when you come upon them.
