From their propaganda/information video:
More than 10.000 churches, missions and groups across 167 nations.
Welcoming OVER 4,4 million new people each year
New churches and missions opening on 6 continents.
This just dont add up to be right.
No it doesn't.
That would be welcoming OVER 440 new people to each of the 10,000 churches/missions/groups each year.
If they count getting someone to do a stress test or personality test as "welcoming new people" then that would be possible.
Let's say a church "welcomes" 440 new people a year. That works out to between 8-9 people a week. So if they can get 8 or 9 people a week to take a stress test or attend a public event, etc, and all 10,000 churches/missions/ groups do this, then they could claim to "welcome" 4.4 Million a year. How many of these people actually buy a book or course or donate any money to the church?
Probably next to none of them.
And the number of new CO$ members is offset by the number leaving.
And there are probably more church or mission closings than openings, but they don't want to mention that.
The CO$ is as good at telling half-truths as it is at lying outright.
