Jehovah’s Witnesses: Vow of Poverty

Life at Bethel Vow of Poverty Part 6

This video discusses the vow of poverty and how it affects those in full-time service and the impact it has for many individuals that live in areas and what happens when they do not pay into social security.

Is there anything wrong with taking a vow of poverty? No! However, the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society is guilty of hypocrisy for condemning other religious denominations for instituting such an arrangement. Why? Because when they discovered they could take certain tax breaks for doing the same thing, they decided to set up their own vow of poverty system – Worldwide Order of Special Full-Time Servants of Jehovah’s Witnesses Unfortunately, such vows did not benefit the Bethelites and other individuals in full-time service.

n fact, when it was convenient, the Watchtower dismissed thousands of Bethelites from their assignments. Many of them were released after serving upwards of 30+ years at Bethel.

One couple was so excited about being accepted to Bethel and after selling their home, donated the money from the sale of their home to the Watchtower Society. Sadly, they were part of the massive layoff of 1,000+ Bethelites.

Jehovah’s Witnesses: Watchtower Wants Your Travel Reward Points Too?

Jehovah's Witnesses Travel Reward Points

It’s all about the money. The Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society is at it again. This time they are interested in your travel reward points.

While there is nothing wrong with donating your points, the Watchtower Society is being hypocritical because they have long condemned other organizations for doing the same thing.

First, they were coming at the children trying to get them to give up their ice cream money and now they are begging for your travel reward points.

In this podcast, JT & Lady Cee presents a skit on what could happen in many Jehovah’s Witness households once the idea of donating travel rewards becomes popular within the community.

Jehovah’s Witnesses: Three Signs that Exhibit they are Collective Narcissists

 

Collective Narcissism-2

 

In this video, JT & Lady Cee join their voices with Arc Ripley of Arglue to Collaborate on the topic of Jehovah’s Witnesses and Collective Narcissism.

We discuss the top three things that identify the Jehovah’s Witnesses as collective narcissists:

1) Persecution Complex
2) Belief that they are the only true religion
3) They believe they are the center of attention

Arc is a fellow YouTuber from a different community that focuses a lot of videos on the topic of Narcissism. He is not affiliated with Jehovah’s Witnesses thus offers an outsiders perspective on the traits of Narcissistic traits.

Narcissism is the pursuit of gratification from vanity or egotistic admiration of one’s idealised self image and attributes. The term originated from Greek mythology, where the young Narcissus fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water.

Collective narcissism (or group narcissism) extends the concept of individual narcissism onto the social level of self. It is a tendency to exaggerate the positive image and importance of a group the individual belongs to – i.e. the ingroup.

GJobbing at Bethel

In the fifth installment of life at Bethel with JT, he talks about G-Jobbing and how everyone at Bethel was not broke. A lot of the brothers that work in the trades had the opportunity to make money on the side by doing construction jobs at Kingdom Hall’s and the homes of the local friends in the congregation (roofing, laying tile, dry wall, installing carpet, etc.). Others had the opportunity to work as wedding photographers and waiter’s at weddings. And for those individuals that had a skill in cutting hair, they were able to earn a few extra bucks working as a barber to those brothers needing a haircut much sooner than the three weeks allowed at Bethel.

For those brothers that had a skill in computer programming, they took their talent to Wall Street and held jobs over there after hours. The opportunities were endless.

Of course, all good things must come to an end! And so it did when the issue of tax reporting became a serious issue when Bethelites started receiving 1099’s and were reportedly not filing the extra cash earned on their taxes. Yikes!

JT and Public Talks – Life at Bethel Part 4 (Jehovah’s Witnesses)

Life at Bethel Part 4

This video is a continuation of JT’s life at Bethel. He discusses Public Talks and his role as the speaker coordinator in his congregation. The presiding overseer in his congregation specifically asked him not to coordinate speakers from other Kingdom Hall’s using what he termed a whole sale bargain where if they had 11 speakers, they would automatically tradeoff every speaker they had. Rather, he encouraged JT to select only their best speakers.

JT was not bashful in whom he invited to his congregation to deliver talks at his congregation. He approached some of the most popular speakers and even asked select members from the Governing Body. To his surprise brother George Gangas, one of the Governing Body members actually accepted his invite.

He recounts what it was like accompanying brother Gangas to his congregation for field service prior to the Sunday meeting and the series of events that happened prior to the meeting.
