I don't understand something. If the new headquarters cost 11.5 million to construct, where is the billion from the sale of properties in New York? Local kingdom Halls may only maintain 5k in their savings at any given time, and all other funds must go to the organization. Conventions make hundreds of thousands of dollars. All sales of kingdom Halls also goes to the Watchtower. They own everything. There's no soup kitchens, relief work. Even when they do help Witnesses in dedevastated places, they spend thousands, not millions. I know of families that give everything they have to the Watchtower, then are instructed to live meagerly. I read stories of hedge funds, and investments. Does the GB really think all their riches are dedicated to Jehovah? What is the money being used for?
