    What about involvement in work? We have the most meaningful work to get involved in-the Kingdom-preaching and disciple-making work. (Matthew 24:14; 28: 19, 20)

    Bait-and-switch. THAT'S NOT WHAT SOLOMON SAID! The conclusion of Solomon's rant, In Ecc 2:24, NIV, is: A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in his work. This too, I see, is from the hand of God

    Blondie: yes, that is why it is pointless to go to college and get an education because work is not meant to be pleasurable or profitable.

    So true, Blondie. Is it any more pleasurable to advise every JW youth that their highest ambition is to be field service? I just cannot imagine a God that would be that limiting. Why can't a young JW scientist provide an informal witness at work. Or a JW artist express their faith through their work? Or, like Dorcas, use her seamstress skills to be a blessing to others? Acts 9:36, 39. No, every JW's ambition is to be the same. How limiting.

    I agree . From a church that offers no security or help for members in the full time ministry they sure have alot to say on how people can support themselves . I have yet to see a home for retired j-dubbies or a soup kitchen to even help those in the full time ministry . The only unity they have in mind is keep the money flowing to headquarters , where it is always more important to invest in real estate .....
