That man of lawlessness is also called the “son of destruction.” That designation was also given to Judas. There is a connection. Now, think back to the time when the woman poured very expensive perfumed nard on Jesus’ feet. Judas protested, asking why this woman was allowed to perform this extravagant waste, when the nard could have been sold for 300 denarii and the money distributed to the poor. But Judas only said that because he was the treasurer and he was stealing the money entrusted to him.
The WT’s plea sounds very Judas-y, in my opinion.
It’s your choice, Jehovah’s knows your heart. But, personally, I choose to give directly to those in need.
