Watchtower Comments-The Memorial


Jehovah's Witnesses have been busy handing out invitations to their yearly Memorial. This video discusses what takes place at this event, including their efforts to recruit new ones and the fact that the vast majority in attendance do not partake of the emblems. In most congregations, everyone present rejects the wine and unleavened bread.


I just received my invitation a few days ago. I think it is ironic that they invited me to a meal where I'm not supposed to eat anything and where no one will talk to me. (I am being shunned, because I dared to disagree with their teachings.) I consider this kind of invitation to be less than hospitable.

Jehovah's Witnesses have largest turnover of recruits,have one of the highest attrition rates of all denominations.

Reports from TIME Magazine-""An even more extreme example of what might be called "masked churn" is the relatively tiny Jehovah's Witnesses, with a turnover rate of about two-thirds.

That means that two-thirds of the people who told Pew they were raised Jehovah's Witnesses no longer are — yet the group attracts roughly the same number of converts. Notes Lugo, "No wonder they have to keep on knocking on doors

Half of all the Watchtower related news now on Jehovah's Witnesses is either obituaries or Kingdom Hall construction.

The old folks who gave everything to the WBTS are dying off left and right cause no new system ever came
The Watchtower keeps on wheeling & dealing big money real estate
80% of all the young people are leaving the JW's
