"If you are currently going to college, why don't you currently meditate in prayer on the possibility of dropping out and doing something better?"
"What decisions will you make? Will you refuse or not? Will you get a university education or not? You will be accountable to Jehovah for this.
We would like to praise those in the audience who dropped out of college when they accepted the Truth, as we praise all those, who after listening to this talk, will make the same decision."
Gerrit Lösch, Governing Body member of the Jehovah's Witness and not a lord over their faith, giving a talk on higher education at a convention in Italy.
