Liken finding child on a ladder… Why? Is he escaping something? No, just showing off for friends.
Or maybe that child is being held prisoner in a basement by some adults who abuse him and the only way out is by climbing a ladder that's missing a couple of rungs. Is it worth him taking a chance on the ladder? Yep, I sure as hell would say it is.
For alot of Witnesses, the only way they can escape the cult is by getting themselves a decent education. So despite all the partying, booze, drugs and fornication that goes on at university, is it worth it to get out of a lousy situation? Yep, I sure as hell would say it is.
As you look, the ladder is old and missing rungs. You don’t want the child on the ladder at all no matter the reason. What more, a thunderstorm is coming. The ladder is all the more dangerous. College is like that ladder. It often promotes sex, drugs etc. Being on an old ladder doesn’t garentee a person get hurt, but it’s not wise neither is college.
"When you meet the friendliest people you have ever known, who introduce you to the most loving group of people you have ever encountered, and you find the leader to be the most caring, compassionate and understanding person you have ever met, and then you learn the cause of the group is something you never dared hope could be accomplished, and all this sounds too good to be true — it probably is too good to be true! Don't give up your education, your hopes and ambitions to follow a rainbow."----Jeannie Mills, Jonestown Survivor
