there is a brief video put up on you tube that i'm sure many of you have seen, it's called " time to blow the cover off " just in case you haven't seen it yet here is a link .
this video after viewing it does emphasize the commercial force behind the wts in it's structure and the majority of their doctrines were presented with the intension of promoting.

they had, what, an 1.6% worldwide annual publisher growth increase last service year?
contrary to many predictions, i think they will better that this service year (ending 30 september).
and i think there will be ongoing increases for the next few service years.

the other day i happened to make my monthly stop at the local fast food joint when i usually borrow one of the community newspapers for an afternoon read.
this time around i see a couple of wt magazines.
as always, my concerns for my fellow man caused me to grab these toxic items for a later meal -- a meal fed to my cross cut shredder at home.

simply leave the meme your self and don't let it control you any more.. the watchtower is a meme.
trying to kill a meme is like trying to kill a god.
you can't but you can get out from under it's control your self.

in my over 30 years as a jw, i honestly can't recall ever hearing about anyone who was being officially "marked" pursuant to the society's "marking" policy based on 2 thess 3:14. .
in fact, i havn't read anything about their strange "marking" policy in years.
this makes me wonder if the society still has confidence in it and still officially endorses it?

i don't know if it is my imagination or what, but i've started to notice something odd in recent wts literature (besides all the other odd things): .
i am struggling to find any mention in recent watchtower articles and publications of jehovah being referred to as the "heavenly father" of jehovah's witnesses!
for example, in the upcoming october 22-28 watchtower study article entitled "your father is merciful" (quoting from luke 6:36), god is not once referred to as "heavenly father" throughout the entire article!

many witnesses lived together in sin or had many wives before 1952 during the rutherford era, this was frowned apoun but no one was disfellowshiped unless they did something major like critisize rutherford!
then in watch.
may 15 1944 and finally watch 1/3 1952, disfellowshiping was invented.
