Yes heard that one a few times myself .
Lets review that statement.
The WTS told its children that this world and most of its inhabitants were going to be killed soon. .... a lie
At the same time children were told that higher education is a waste of time since the world is going to end soon
connecting to another engaging lie .
Like higher education never helps humanity !
Celebrating birthdays is a sin displeasing god, which really doesn't have strong scriptural support .
Really so making or showing respect and love for someone on their birthday is such a sin that makes god frown ?
How about the thousands of people lying dead in graveyards, many children, who obeyed the WTS leaders concerning receiving blood transfusions.and the ones that grieved their deaths such as family members. ???
