*** Watchtower September 1 1975 p.543 Questions from Readers ***
How many years of secular education are advisable for children in Christian households?
Today, there are many teenage baptized servants of Jehovah... how far should they go with a secular education? It would hardly be consistent for such a youth, of his own choice, to pursue extensive secular studies beyond what is required by the law and by his parents... additional years of college education may present snares.
Now the question is Consistent WITH WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*** Watchtower 1969 March 15 p.171 What Influences Decisions in Your Life? ***
12 The influence and spirit of this world is to get ahead, to make a name for oneself. Many schools now have student counselors who encourage one to pursue higher education after high school, to pursue a career with a future in this system of things. Do not be influenced by them. Do not let them brainwash you with the Devils propaganda to get ahead, to make something of yourself in this world. This world has very little time left! Any future this world offers is no future! Wisely, then, let Gods Word influence you in selecting a course that will result in your protection and blessing. Make pioneer service, the full-time ministry, with the possibility of Bethel or missionary service your goal. This is a life that offers an everlasting future!
For any lurker out there who says the WT NEVER TOLD IT'S youth not to go to college what is the clear message that the FDS trying to tell young folks and till this very day they are still preaching the same basis message
