A CAVE OF ROBBERS
In recent years the Watchtower has begun selling off property. The Brooklyn Bethel world headquarters had the biggest profile, but dozens and probably hundreds of kingdom halls have also been closed and put up for sale. Some kingdom halls have set shuttered for years and years waiting on a buyer. Although Jehovah’s Witnesses locally pay for and build their own kingdom halls the Watchtower owns them and the leaders of the organization have demonstrated that their primary interest has nothing to do with the spiritual welfare of Jehovah's Witnesses —they are a money making corporation foremost.
But who really owns kingdom properties? Are not all such facilities formally dedicated to Jehovah God? If something has been dedicated to God how can it be re-purposed? It cannot. Isn’t Christian baptism an outward symbol of our dedicating ourselves to God and Christ? Can one of Jehovah's Witnesses un-dedicate themselves? Not without consequences.
The leadership of Jehovah’s Witnesses has defrauded Jehovah. They have betrayed their sacred trust. There will be consequences for their having turned Jehovah’s spiritual house of worship into a cave of robbers, just as stated in Jeremiah: “‘But you are putting your trust in deceptive words—it will bring absolutely no benefit. Can you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, make sacrifices to Baal, and follow after gods you had not known, and then come and stand before me in this house that bears my name and say, ‘We will be saved,’ despite your doing all these detestable things? Has this house that bears my name become a cave of robbers in your eyes? Here I have seen it for myself,’ declares Jehovah.” -Jeremías 7: 8-11
