Watchtower 2009 Annual Report

The data published by the Watchtower in their 2009 annual report confirms that a disturbing trend for them continues yet another year. The anointed partakers of the emblems at their annual memorial meal has once again risen sharply despite the fact that according to their theology the number of those in the "anointed class" should be shrinking.  This year it has risen nearly 10 percent.

Recently they had to do some major back peddling on their previous doctrine that taught  the "heavenly call" ended in 1935.  However that change will buy them very little time.  One wonders how long they can continue the current doctrine without some sort of massive change.
