I was wondering if any of you have read this tract that was given out at the District Convention .
I found in this tract they are pushing the fulltime ministry more than ever before. They in so many words say if you are not a fulltime minister you are not serving God. It stated that youths today should not strive for academic success. That there is no greater job than being a pioneer. You should not work more than part-time.
One Statement that left me disillusioned was the subheading Qualifying to be a Witness of Jehovah. It states "Dedication involves disowning yourself. You may forsake some personal goals and ambitions and seek first the kingdom of God."
My scanner at home is not working but I will scan in the tract tomorrow when I go to work and post it for everyone.
It just makes me so sad to see how they getting to the young people. I spent the other night crying because my brother who is 18 just informed me he is not going to college because it is not neccessary and will not help him in his life. Then my 15 year old sister who is a honor student and in honors classes told me my mother is removing her from school and putting her in a school where she only has to attend one day a week. I guess she was talking about her dream of being a Zoologist too often for my Mom. It just sadens me to see this happening to my family. After reading this tract I saw where my Mother got her ammunition.
