This is not new light but rather an important scripture that puts lie to the Societies teaching that one should not celebrate birthdays or holidays. If I remember the JW's they have always been ready to honor their god at mealtimes and thanksgiving in general. I have always been astounded that these plain spoken scriptures from Paul have been wantonly ignored by the Society. It seems clear as can be:
One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike.
Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes
it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not
observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God
thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and
gives God thanks. (Romans 14:5-6)
To prove that the JW's are different the WT violates the scriptures once again.
I am a non believer, by the way, but this abusive religion can still turn my stomach.
