A 15% increase in donations for the month's of June and July were all that JW's could donate. This did not please the "Faithful and Discreet Slave Class". We finally learned that Watchtower has over a thousand (1,000+) projects on their plate that need immediate financial backing. In addition, we learned from Watchtower that they look at the Old Testament when it comes to building religious edifices. Another item is that when the Israelites built and financed their temple, they were the ones who enjoyed the temple and benefited from the temple. Today, Watchtower is asking more affluent lands to finance other nations construction work in which the affluent lands do not benefit from the construction. Maybe it is time for Watchtower to simplify their project load and greatly reduce the number of projects on the board. Jesus taught his true worshippers to simplify their lives. True Christians heed Jesus words and simplify.

The Watchtower is asking for money from their publisher ranks again. This movie clip is what the whole May 2015 Broadcast is all about. Bye! Bye! Watchtower took the liberty to remove the fluff in the May 2015 broadcast and present the main theme. Can you imagine Jesus doing this type of broadcast? This clip is worth repeating over and over again. The Governing Body needs more faith in Jehovah's providing power. Clearly, they do not have the faith.

Anthony Morris III's obsession with Tight Pants made the Watchtower magazine from the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. Now he is allowing Elders to go after kids regarding young teenagers dressing inappropriately with tight pants. When will Watchtower stop the abuse. First, they go after young people's ice cream money. Then, they want to abuse the teenagers with ridiculous dress and grooming rules. Watchtower stop abusing the children in the hall and be more like Jesus Christ. Jesus took care of children. He did not abuse them.

This short almost 2.5 minute YouTube video shows the difference on how Jesus Christ views the governments and how the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society views the governments. Since 8th grade Civics class, the governments of today are comprised of three branches: the executive branch (President), the legislative branch (Congress - the Senate and the House of Representatives), and the Judicial Branch (United States Supreme Court). Other countries have similar branches. Jehovah's Witnesses have told people they do not get involved in politics of any form. However, this video clearly shows that Jehovah's Witnesses are indeed involved in the various governments. They even produced an Awake magazine with the United States Supreme Court on the cover of a magazine produced by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. The Watchtower magazine has this claim: "This magazine has been published continuously since 1879 and is nonpolitical." The Awake magazine covers the United States Supreme Court's decision in Watchtower Society v. Village of Stratton, 536 U.S. 150. In the magazine the Jehovah's Witnesses worshipped the United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) even showing the Justice's pictures. Please let it be known that Supreme Court Justices are appointed by the United States President (POTUS). The United States President is part of a political party. Each Justice on the Supreme Court is part of a political party. This Awake magazine was produced right after the decision to throw it in the face of the mayor of the Village of Stratton who lost the case in the Supreme Court. That was the only purpose of this issue of the Awake magazine. Jesus Christ never threw things in the face of people who did not agree with him. This action by Watchtower was produced in spite. Not a very loving provision of Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. In fact, the Watchtower's new Jesus book has the quote: "...the world’s governments actually are the Devil’s property; he controls them." Maybe that is the reason why none of Jesus apostles were Judges, lawyers, and any other legal professional. Watchtower Bible and Tract Society has their very own legal department inside their world headquarters as well. See video below. Also, the Bible teaches at Matthew 4:8-11 - "Again the Devil took him along to an unusually high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to him: “All these things I will give you if you fall down and do an act of worship to me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him: “Go away, Satan! For it is written: ‘It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service.’” 11 Then the Devil left him, and look! angels came and began to minister to him." This is denoted by the Jesus Illustration in the Watchtower's new Jesus book. If Jehovah's Witnesses are so interested in "Imitating Jesus Christ", why will they not leave the political governments alone in its entirety? 1/3 of a government is still part of the government. The Watchtower society does not care. They will do their own thing, regardless of what people know and say. They run to the government to hide who they really are. When the Pharisees wanted to strut their power and found that Jesus Christ could do more than they could ever do, who did the Pharisees run to? You guessed it. The Roman Empire. The government.

Jehovah's Witnesses viewpoint on homosexuality. The Awake! magazine is published by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. This is the parent company of the Jehovah's Witnesses. Bigotry remains a high point in the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society.

The Watchtower magazine used to have more "beef" into each issue. The sizing down reminds me of the Wendy's commercial where 3 older ladies are hovering over a hamburger, one decides to take the top bun off and reveals a small beef patty. Two of the ladies poke at the bun and comment, "It certainly is a big bun. It's a very big bun. It's a big fluffy bun. It's a very big fluffy bun" Then, one of the ladies (Clara Peller) uses a more direct approach and all she could say is "Where's the Beef?" The Watchtower magazine is shrinking every year. Less and Less "beef" inside. Does this mean that the "Faithful and Discreet Slave Class" knows much less than their predecessors? It sure appears that way. Or, is something more important than knowledge of God? Perhaps, there are over a 1000 construction projects that are more important than having Bible understanding and learning from the magazines. No one will ever know the truth. All we can see is the effects of change. Sources: Watchtower magazine cover photos: http://www.jw.org Where's the Beef commercial: Dancer Fitzgerald Sample advertising agency William Welter, the executive vice president of Wendy's International, led the marketing team at the time of the campaign. The commercial was directed by Joe Sedelmaier as part of a campaign by the advertising agency Dancer Fitzgerald Sample. It was written by Cliff Freeman. The marketing and promotion campaign were created by Alan Hilburg and the Burson-Marsteller team under the direction of Denny Lynch, the vice president of corporate communications at Wendy's. Ed Hoke is credited as being the cofounder of the slogan along with best friend Lee Greenwood.

She was part of the generation that saw 1914 but died before seeing the new system. Clara did pass away at 85 years old. We thank you Clara for all you did in exposing the other burger joints. Now we can use the same slogan for the religions who claim to be the True Religion.

Watchtower in their broadcast of June 2016 encourages people to discard their Bill of Rights. It is interesting that a religious organization that builds their whole rights on the Freedom of Religion want to discard other peoples rights. Watchtower has a problem with whom people associate with, what their people wear as clothing, and a continued laundry list of rules and regulations that are not found in the Bible at all. My question to Watchtower is this. Why don't you give up your personal rights? In my opinion this is reason why the United States is in the situation they are in. The government has given too much rights to religion and have no checks and balances at all.
