    Interesting...Memorial attendance really hasn't changed much in 17 years. It was 27K (and change) last year...and the same in 1998. Meanwhile, the population of NZ has grown by 1 million in that same period (26%). The 2017 "Ratio 1 publisher to..." has slowly increased to 1:340 in 2017-- the worst ratio in NZ since 1986...31 years. Clearly the efforts of JWs in NZ to even keep up with population growth has stalled. "Peak publishers" has basically stayed flat, only fluctuating within a small margin since 2008...nearly 10 years.

      Hello guest!
    One of which contained an article...'What is a Jehovah's Witness? - - by Milton G Henschel
  2. Recently some secret “elders’ training videos” that are going to be used for the 2018 Kingdom Ministry School of Jehovah’s Witnesses were leaked online. One particular video was very disturbing; it showed a skit of three elders discussing what the religion calls “regular pioneers.” These are persons who spend a high amount of time in the preaching and proselytizing work of Jehovah’s Witnesses; in 2018, these pioneers were required to report a total of 840 hours for the year, equaling 70 hours per month. The elders, in this demonstration, are discerning if three such pioneers in their congregation should be allowed to remain as pioneers, as each one has failed to meet that hourly requirement for the past year. Despite this outright instruction to think of themselves as equals, Jehovah’s Witnesses and their elders dole out this position of pioneer, blatantly elevating it above other “publishers,” or congregation members. This is demonstrated when the men in the skit read a letter sent to all elders, dated May 1, 2017, which discusses how to handle various scenarios of pioneers who cannot meet their hours. The letter notes that a person could be considered an “infirm pioneer,” if they felt that removing the person from the pioneer ranks would be a “backward step” for them: This point, that being a pioneer elevates you above the rest of the congregation, is emphasized again in that same letter, when it separates and divides the everyday congregants or publishers from these pioneers: Obviously, to this woman and those whom she represents in this skit, the preaching work itself is not of importance; it’s having a special title that says you’re doing more than the next person that’s the real priority. The elders sitting in a room, judging and critiquing pioneers or any congregation member without them present, about any subject, is disturbing enough. However, this video also demonstrates that pioneering is not about how effective you are in preaching and teaching, and it’s not about fulfilling any command given by Jesus, or about the people you might be helping. This title of pioneer is about just that; the title. It’s given to those who toe the company line and is taken away from those who are struggling, in order to elevate some above the congregation and then put others in their place. This harsh judging and critiquing of such ones shows that the preaching work of Jehovah’s Witnesses shouldn’t be called “field service,” but should just be called what it is; self-service.

  4. Kingdom Ministry School 2018

    The Kingdom Ministry School 2018 is a training school for circuit overseers, elders and ministerial servants of Jehovah’s Witnesses. According to Jehovah’s Witnesses’ doctrine, “an overseer in the congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses must be a man who can organize his life so as to give the proper attention to all in the congregation and be a blessing to them. At the same time he cannot be a man who ignores his family in favor of the congregation, but he must use the spirit of a sound mind.” To that end, this is an “opportunity … afforded … congregation servants throughout the world of coming together at the Kingdom Ministry School to get a training that will help them to do just what the Bible says an overseer should be able to accomplish”. The real intent of these talks is to ensure that the circuit overseers, elders and ministerial servants remain in complete obedience to the governing body and the organization behind Jehovah’s Witnesses. It’s interesting to think most grown men that will attend this one day seminar will be unable to see the undue influence being pushed upon them. Kingdom Ministry School 2018 Talk Outlines Here is the list of the 12 talks being given to all the circuit overseers and elders of Jehovah’s Witnesses around the world between 2017 and 2018.

  5. Two elders have been deleted by Watchtower for reporting an allegation of child sexual abuse to the police, contrary to Watchtower orders (a jw paedophile with a history, apparently). When the British branch discovered what the elders had done they arranged for 3 elders to fly over to Ireland, at the congregations expense no less, to hold a special JC for the ' rogue' congregation elders. One elder and the COBE were deleted, two were allowed to continue. All four had made statements to police. Their crime was, breathtakingly, not exhibiting "soundness of mind" by not following company directives and using their own conscience!!! The following 'Watchtower in Focus' explains all. Incredibly a practicing jw reached out to jw survey in an attempt to have a light shone on this travesty of justice, which resulted in an excellent front page article being written in a national magazine.

  9. Gizmodo and Faithleaks

    Documents relate to alleged sex abuse allegations against local church leader Two adult women came forward in 1999 with accusations against their dad Claimed he physically and sexually abused them as kids decades earlier Church leaders tried to keep the matter internal, documents indicate 'Disfellowshipped' the father, a local leader, but reinstated him following year
  10. Regarding a change to a song title, the study article on page 7 paragraph 17 of November 2017 Watchtower explained, “The change of the title “Guard Your Heart” to “We Guard Our Hearts” was most considerate. Why? In the audience at our meetings, assemblies, and conventions are many new ones, interested ones, young ones, and sisters who by singing the words would be put in the awkward position of telling others what to do. So the title and the lyrics were modified.”

  12. Jehovah’s Witnesses have quite a selection of public talk outlines that elders and ministerial servants can choose from. These public talk outlines are used for giving a sermon at their weekend meetings, held in local kingdom halls around the world. Historically, public talks were of 45 minute lengths. In recent times, the public talks have been reduced to 30 minutes. Here is the full list of public talk outlines in English. The public talk outlines are provided by Jehovah’s Witnesses.
