If you are one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, you have a requirement each month to turn in a time slip indicating how many hours, books, magazines and a host of other production numbers to the Secretary in your congregation. He will then tabulate all of the hours for each publisher in the congregation and send the final numbers to the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society. This podcast goes into detail on how those numbers are used to measure the spirituality of its members.
It is amazing how your character is judged by what you report or should we say, “don’t report” each month. Because when the traveling overseer aka Circuit Overseer comes to visit the congregation every six months, he takes the pulse of the congregation to see how everyone is measuring up.
Does this sound like a religion or a business parading around as if it is a religion? You decide!
