An Interesting Statistic!

    In a public talk, a brother stated that in a recent year the organization in the US would have had a 3 % increase

    but only reported a 1 % increase because of the large number of disfellowshippings ( i.e. 2%). Since he has a son

    in Bethel long term, I thought his factoid might be credible.

    Think about it....

    This would help explain why they are so persistent about visiting df'd folks and getting them back.

    It would be quite a crisis to be disfellowshipping people TWICE as fast as their net increase!

    So the revolving "out" door is revolving twice as fast in the revolving "in" door in the US now!

    To make matters worse, nearly all of that 1% growth rate represents children of current JWs, and the majority of them bolt the religion as soon as they are of majority age.

    We can only hope that this trend continues!!!!
