You have either been seriously misled and quite clearly have not bothered to look at the facts.
There are absolutely no Witnesses who earn a “salary” working for the Watchtower Society or other corporations. From the Governing Body to the janitor they are all volunteers and belong to a legally recognized religious order which requires a vow of poverty.
Where is there any evidence that any member of the Governing Body or other Bethel workers are making money? They do not live a life of luxury buying mansions and expensive cars. They are living in small but comfortable apartments similar to all the other volunteers.
The unsupported allegations that any Witness ever derived financial gain from donations to the WTS is actually ludicrous. Many of those volunteering at Bethel rejected the opportunity to make good money secularly and instead devoted their whole life to promoting Christian values. And even the governing body members and the president of the Watchtower corporation are only "paid" exactly the same as those who cleaned the restrooms at Bethel. When I was there it was a stipend of a little over $100.00 a month for basic needs not covered in room and board. Now it is around $200 a month.
It is impossible for anyone to gain financially from donations to the Watchtower Society! Witnesses have no monetary objectives and so you can be sure that the vast majority of any money donated to the WTS ends up going directly to pay for literature and disaster relief. So we can be sure that our money is going to those who need in and not into someone pocket. No other religions organization can make this claim.
What a contrast to the obscene salaries and greed of other religious executives!! The WTS makes no "profits" and has no paid clergy, and most religious "charities" only pass on 5-10% of donations, but the WTS uses 90%+ of all donations to disaster relief and printing Bibles and bible aids!!
Despite the lies of people like “unsilenced” no member of the Governing Body or any other worker ever makes money off of any donation or sale of Watchtower property nor could it be possible to do so. It is especially disgusting when you see those who claim to have given up being part of this organization and yet now worship with and make common cause with these other organizations with a paid clergy!
When people dishonestly spread such obvious lies like this one you know that you cannot believe anything else they say. And then they admit to worshiping with other religions which turn a blind eye, or outright allow, homosexuals, fornicators and adulterers to be accepted members of their congregation. These religions also allow their members to drop bombs even on fellow "Christians."
I need no further proof to see that there remains no Christian Truth or Holy Spirit in these individuals!
Actual evidence irrefutably proves that Jehovah's Witnesses are the true Christian Congregation and it alone has the Truth. On the other hand all other religions have abandoned following Christ, in actions and morals. And ALL who make common cause with these religions are unfaithful to God.
When we see how weak, unreasonable, illogical, and downright false opposing arguments and beliefs are then we are even more convinced that have the Truth and are part of the Christ's True "Church" today (Dan.12:3; Mat.13:39-43).
