  1. I am writing this on Sunday 12/9 at about 3:30 PM. On Thursday night I drove up here to Warwick with relatives. We completed the five exhibits at Warwick, spoke with some Bethelites we knew, and attended the Sunday morning meeting held in the Bethel Auditorium where the "Long Meadow" congregation meets. This is a congregation of about 180 persons, some of whom travel from up to about half-an-hour away, and many (if not most) of the members are Bethelites who live in the HQ complex on site. Tomorrow we'll go to Wallkill. The first thing you notice from setting your smartphone maps and GPS routing systems is that the Warwick Bethel is not in Warwick. It's actually all within the borders and limits of Tuxedo Park, NY. If you look at the back of the Warwick Bethel brochure you'll see that 1 Kings Drive, Tuxedo Park, NY 10987 is the actual address. The name was picked, I assume, because Warwick is a town just a little farther away, in another zip code (10990), and smaller than Tuxedo Park, but with a name that sounds just a bit more Biblical. It's a name that also sounds a bit more alliterative: as in, "Watchtower at Wallkill" and "Watchtower at Warwick." Wars, Wicks, Walls, and Kills are all found in the Bible, but no Tuxedos of any stripe. The exhibits were very good. I'll find my previous post that discusses them and try to get it to land below this one.
  2. Las empresas más importantes del mundo están representadas en Nueva York. Un listado financiero de amplia difusión situaba a la Watch Tower Bible como la empresa número 34 más importante de la gran ciudad norteamericana. Sin contar los inmuebles que posee en distintos países, una treintena de edificios formaban su patrimonio inmobiliario en aquella urbe, patrimonio que ahora está en venta al haberse trasladado la Organización a las zonas campestres de Wallkill, Patterson y Warwick, tres ciudades del estado de Nueva York. La Watch Tower es en realidad un imperio económico mantenido por más de ocho millones de testigos de Jehová en todo el mundo, bajo la dirección de su Cuerpo Gobernante. Además de las sustanciosas donaciones de la grey y de las recaudaciones por la edición de millones de piezas mensuales de literatura, la Watch Tower Bible se sostiene en parte con los beneficios de la venta de sus inmuebles de actividad religiosa y con los de los hedge funds, unos fondos de inversión que solamente los millonarios del planeta pueden permitirse. 00:00 Play againPLAY AGAIN Sin que los testigos de Jehová lo supieran, la Watch Tower Bible estuvo asociada a la ONU como una ONG (Organización No Gubernamental) entre los años 1992 y 2001. En este último año el periódico británico The Guardian destapó el asunto y publicó la secreta afiliación de la Watch Tower a la ONU. Inmediatamente la Watch Tower solicitó su baja como ONG de la ONU. Tanto la recóndita inscripción de la Watch Tower como ONG de la ONU como la inmediata baja en dicho Organismo a raíz de la publicación del diario The Guardian sorprendió desfavorablemente a los testigos de Jehová del mundo entero. El representante de los testigos en Portugal, señor Candeias, se apresuró a informar a la prensa de que la inscripción susodicha obedecía al hecho de poder ‘dar ayuda humanitaria y de defensa de los derechos humanos en países de todo el mundo’. No obstante el Cuerpo Gobernante notificó poco después que el haberse inscrito la Watch Tower como ONG de la ONU tenía como único fin el de acceder a la Biblioteca de las Naciones Unidas, lo cual se demostró que era falso, pues la propia ONU informó de que nunca le fue preciso a nadie afiliarse como ONG para acceder a su Biblioteca, sino que tal afiliación se urdía con el exclusivo fin de promover los intereses de la ONU a nivel mundial, algo que la Watch Tower hizo durante años mediante los pertinentes artículos que publicó en sus revistas de gran tirada. En otros tiempos la Watch Tower Bible, tal como aparece publicado en sus libros y revistas, mantenía que la ONU era una organización diabólica, la ‘imagen de la bestia salvaje’ que menciona el libro bíblico de Apocalipsis. Durante los diez años de afiliación a la ONU la Watch Tower suavizó aquellas declaraciones, mientras alababa las benéficas funciones del universal Organismo. Muchos pastores de los testigos de Jehová, descubierta ya esa afiliación de la Watch Tower a la ONU, entendieron correctamente que tal actitud equivalía a pactar con el Diablo con tal de que la Organización de los testigos de Jehová prosperara, mientras que Jesucristo y los apóstoles jamás pensaron en un pacto así para que el cristianismo se expandiera. Desde el momento de su reconocimiento como ONG en 1992, la Watch Tower Bible aceptó los requisitos de la ONU, tales como los de ‘compartir los ideales de la carta de las Naciones Unidas’ y ‘mostrar interés en las actividades de la ONU’. La inscripción de la Watch Tower como ONG de la ONU se renovaba de año en año, siempre con los ideales de la propia ONU en mira. Con fecha del 11 de Octubre de 2001, el Departamento de Información Pública (DIP) de la ONU emitió el siguiente comunicado: ‘Recientemente la Sección de la ONG ha recibido numerosas peticiones sobre informes con respecto a la asociación de la Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York con el Departamento de Información Pública (DIP). Esta organización presentó una solicitud para asociarse con el DIP en 1991 y la asociación le fue concedida en 1992. Al aceptar la asociación con el DIP, la organización acordó cumplir con los criterios de la asociación, los cuales incluían el apoyo y respeto a los principios de la Carta de las Naciones Unidas y un compromiso y los medios para llevar a cabo eficazmente los programas de información con sus constituyentes y a un público más amplio acerca de las actividades de la ONU. En octubre del 2001, la Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York solicitó una finalización a su asociación con el DIP’. La Watch Tower insinuó que en 2001 se dio de baja como ONG de la ONU al comprobar que en ese año se habían cambiado los criterios de pertenencia a dicha Organización. Sin embargo la ONU, en carta dirigida a cuantos solicitaban información (que eran precisamente testigos de Jehová), declaró entre otras cosas que ‘el criterio de asociación para las ONG no ha variado desde 1991’. La ONU además informó de que el acceso a su biblioteca era público, si bien a partir de Septiembre del 2001 había que tener, por seguridad, el correspondiente pase para entrar físicamente en el local de la biblioteca, aunque cualquier persona podía acceder por vía informática. Quien esto escribe y otros colegas del periodismo accedían sin problemas a la biblioteca de la ONU y sin estar afiliados a ONG alguna. En 1992, cuando se admitió a la Watch Tower como entidad afiliada, el DIP de la ONU informaba de que ´las ONG reconocidas oficialmente por el DIP colaboran con las Naciones Unidas para ayudar a edificar un entendimiento público y un apoyo a los programas y las metas de las Naciones Unidas… Para que les sea concedido el estatus de asociación con el DIP, las ONGs deben… apoyar la Carta de las Naciones Unidas… y poseer recursos necesarios para un alcance eficaz’. En ninguna parte menciona la ONU que la afiliación a la misma como ONG se hacía para poder acceder a su extensa biblioteca. Eso no fue más que una excusa del Cuerpo Gobernante de los testigos de Jehová para poder salir del paso ante los millones de fieles que exigían una respuesta, habiendo constancia de que algunos fueron expulsados de las congregaciones por no aceptar la explicación oficial e informar a otros testigos de la realidad de los hechos. Definitivamente, la Watch Tower sí estuvo afiliada como ONG a la ONU durante diez años, con vistas a los beneficios que podían derivarse de ello. Dicha afiliación fue secreta porque los testigos de Jehová no verían con buenos ojos que su propia Organización estuviera pactando con la apocalíptica ‘imagen de la bestia salvaje’. http://andaluciainformacion.es/gente-lugares-y-tradiciones/631236/la-watch-tower-bible-y-la-onu/
  3. Part of a series on: Jehovah's Witnesses A number of corporations are in use by Jehovah's Witnesses. They publish literature and perform other operational and administrative functions, representing the interests of the religious organization. "The Society" has been used as a collective term for these corporations.The oldest and most prominent of their corporation names, "Watch Tower Society", has also been used synonymously with the religious organization of Jehovah's Witnesses, even in their own literature.[1] Particularly since 2000, Jehovah's Witnesses have maintained a distinction between their corporations and their religious organization.[2][3] About 4300 Jehovah's Witnesses in the USA provide voluntary unpaid labor, as members of a religious order (see logo below) and are part of the Worldwide Order of Special Full-Time Servants of Jehovah's Witnesses Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania See Main article: Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania is a non-stock, not-for-profit organization[4] headquartered in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, United States. It is the main legal entity used worldwide by Jehovah's Witnesses, often referred to as "The Society". It holds the copyrights of most literature published by Jehovah's Witnesses. The society was founded in 1881 with William Henry Conley, a Pittsburgh businessman, as the first president and Charles Taze Russell as secretary-treasurer.[5] The society was incorporated as Zion's Watch Tower Tract Society in Pennsylvania on December 15, 1884, with Russell as president.[6] The corporation was officially renamed Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society in 1896; similar names had been in unofficial use since at least 1892.[7] Personnel (as of September 1, 2005) President: Don A. Adams Vice Presidents: Robert W. Wallen, William F. Malenfant Secretary/Treasurer: Richard E. Abrahamson Directors: Danny L. Bland, Philip D. Wilcox, John N.

Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York, Inc. (originally called the Peoples Pulpit Association of New York) is a corporation used by Jehovah's Witnesses, which is responsible for administrative matters, such as real estate, especially within the United States. This corporation is typically cited as the publisher of Jehovah's Witnesses publications, though other publishers are sometimes cited. The corporation's stated purposes are: “Charitable, benevolent, scientific, historical, literary and religious purposes; the moral and mental improvement of men and women, the dissemination of Bible truths in various languages by means of the publication of tracts, pamphlets, papers and other religious documents, and for religious missionary work.”[8] See also: Watchtower Real Estate News and an example of it's investment portfolio strategy Selected Personnel (as of April 1, 2012) President: Leon Weaver Jr. (Replaced Max H. Larson) Vice Presidents George M. Couch, Lonnie R. Schilling Secretary/Treasurer Gerald F. Simonis Directors Gerald D. Grizzle, David G. Sinclair, Robert M. Pevy Originally known as the Peoples Pulpit Association, the organization was incorporated in 1909 when the Society's principal offices moved to Brooklyn, New York. In 1939, it was renamed Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, Inc., and in 1956 the name was changed to Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York, Inc.[9]Until 2000, a member of the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses was president of both the Watch Tower (Pennsylvania) and Watchtower (New York) corporations, as well as Britain's International Bible Students Association corporation; in 2001, it was decided that the corporations' directors need not be members of the Governing Body.[2] In 2001 the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York was listed among the top forty revenue-generating companies in New York City, reporting an annual revenue of about 951 million US dollars.[10] Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses (Incorporated 2000) Coordinates all service (i.e., proselytic) activities, including door-to-door proselytism, circuit and district conventions, etc. President William L.

Weigel Other US corporations Reorganization in 2000 resulted in the creation of several additional corporate entities to serve the needs of the United States branch of Jehovah's Witnesses. Since then, most written communication with congregations and individuals in the United States involves the Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses, Inc; other corporations include, for example, Religious Order of Jehovah's Witnesses, New York. Incorporated in 2000 to give particular attention to those in special full-time service: Bethel volunteers, missionaries, traveling overseers, special pioneers; and assembly halls.

Students Association International Bible Students Association is a corporate not-for-profit organization used by Jehovah's Witnesses in the United Kingdom. Some Jehovah's Witnesses publications cite this corporation as publisher or co-publisher.[citation needed]It was founded in 1914 as a corporation of the Bible Students by Charles Taze Russell in London, England, and was the first legal corporation representing Russell's ministry in Europe. Along with their Pennsylvania and New York based corporations, Watch Tower publications since 1914 have stated: "All three of these corporations were organized for identical purposes and they harmoniously work together."[20]Later corporations, such as in Canada, were similarly named. The name continues to be used for corporate entities (for example, in East Africa), but in 1931 the religion formally changed its name worldwide from International Bible Students Association to Jehovah’s witnesses.Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of BritainWatch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Ireland Other corporations Since the formation of the International Bible Students Association, many other legal entities sanctioned by the Governing Body have been used throughout the world to further the interests of Jehovah's Witnesses.[21]Typically these are synonymous with the branch offices in various countries. These include: Testigos de Jehová de Venezuela, La Victoria, Venezuela Association of Jehovah’s Witnesses of East Africa Associação Torre de Vigia de Bíblias e Tratados Iglesia Cristiana de los Testigos de Jehová - (Colombia) Testigos Cristianos de Jehova - (Spain) Congregación Cristiana de los Testigos de Jehová - (México) Wachtturm Bibel- und Traktat-Gesellschaft der Zeugen Jehovas, e.

In 2005, the branch office in Canada began using this name for a separate Canadian entity for most correspondence, while retaining Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Canada for other matters. Literature of Jehovah's Witnesses has also referred to the religion generally as the "Christian congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses".[22][23][24] Corporations used for International Conventions Detroit International Hospitality Committee.
