    I am at work talking to a current JDub and I am making progress (I think) with her and right now the theme is education. She says that the WT no longer looks down on education and is claiming that the WT no longer says we are close to the end! TIA!

    Their always saying we're close to the end,.they just had another overlapping generation video.

    Last year's broadcast. January 2015.

    This article from the 2005 Watchtower thoroughly bashes university education.

    They touched on this in the meeting last night. Our Christian Life and Ministry Workbook (January) - the section Digging for Spiritual Gems - 2Ch 32:7, 8—What is the most practical step we can take to prepare for future difficulties? (w13 11/15 20 ¶17)

    Part of the WT article quoted states,

    (4) Now is the time for any who may be putting their trust in secular education, material things, or human institutions to adjust their thinking. The elders must stand ready to help any who may now be wavering in their faith.

    That late 2013 WT is touched on more and more. Especially at this weeks new CLAM midweek meeting. Such comments about limiting education, having a meager job and possibly selling-off of homes, etc. ''Preparing for life saving instructions'', comments like these from elders.

    Ha! Your friend is wrong.

    Look at this video, on their official site, aimed at teens:

    Bashing of any ''practical means'' like that of education and holding down a job. Contrary to what people have to do to survive.

    Thanks wifibandit - I just watched that video. I think I'm gonna start pioneering! They make it look so rosey and all. Like if you choose pioneering as a career then everything will be just fine. You'll never vex, you'll never be sorry, you'll never this, never that. All you gotta do it pioneer. And all your bills will be paid.
