    I just find it amazing how people fall for this.

    They cleverly word things to make it look like you are doing it for Jehovah, no-one else. Not even yourself.

    It also warns about your conduct - how it reflects on others. It is of no surprise that many Pioneers I knew lose their personality and become almost robot-like with their thinking for fear of losing the title of pioneer.

    When I was a pioneer the hour requirement was 1200 hours a year. And yes you spend so much time going through all the motions of the religion that you totally loose your own identity. Everything revolves round the organisation

    You just reminded me of mine. I still have it with my Shining As Illuminators book from prioneer school.

    A pioneer explores new territory- see new places- has an adventure. A JW pioneer does none of that.

    1000 hours a month?

    It neatly lines up with the decimal number system.

    For all they know, Jehober may prefer the binary system and the requirement could be 1024 hours (2 10 )...

    What a total load of crap. Sales quotas disguised as some noble cause.

    Caveat emptor.

    I think I have my old pioneer card somewhere. I gotta look for that.
