I finished reading God's word for us through Jeremiah and found this interesting quote on page 45 par 7:
"For example a man might reason, I have to hold down a job to support my family, which is understandable. What if that led him to think, I need
more education to secure or hold a decent job? That too might seem logical, leading him to conclude, times have changed, and to survive today
you need to get a college or university education to hold on to your job. How easily one might start to minimize the wise, balanced advice from the
faithful discreet slave class about additional education and start to miss meetings!"
This is what the faithful slave wrote 18 years ago!
1992 watchtower pages 15-21 article "Education with a purpose"
"13 Some have taken training courses that have opened up job opportunities enabling them to engage in or resume full-time service. One sister in the Philippines was the family breadwinner, but she wanted to pioneer. The branch reports: “She has been able to do this because she has received additional education to qualify as a certified public accountant.” "
So in 1992 it was OK to get extra training but in 2010 if a person gets additional education your heart is deceiving you.
In the Jeremiah book I found 3 other places where college and university was discouraged almost condemned, but in the 1990's there are 3 or 4
watchtower articles advising young ones to have enough education to earn decent wages.
Any ideas why?
