It is well documented that the JW religion frowns on there members engaging in competitive sports to the extent they discourage school age children in the organization from being a part of competitive sports..Gal.5:26
I have commented before on an AFL payer in Victoria who claims he is a JW who threatened to leave his club and pursue his religious convictions a year or two ago ,of course he didn`t and probably got an increase in his pay/salary
good on him that`s business,and his business.
I now notice that he is sporting a well kept grown beard another thing that his professed religion frowns upon .I wonder if he still professes to be a JW or if he has left the religion.?
To my knowledge he was never baptized even though he is in his mid twenties and married to a Jw.sister.
Jehovah`s witnesses encourage young teens to be baptized and suggest that a JW sister should not look to being yoked with a brother unless he is baptized certainly by the time he is twenty .
If Alec Rance still professes to be a Jehovah`s witness and if he is not baptized while in his mid twenties and sporting a beard, he is not considered a Jehovah`s witness by his fellow congregants until he gets baptized and gets rid of his beard.
If the above is correct does his claim to be a Jehovah`s witness publicly warrant a disclaimer by the religion he professors because he doesn`t abide by the Governing body /faithful & discreet slave class directives of his religion ?
