Bless you, that was a big sneeze you let out Sister.
Sister- Ah, what does "bless you" mean?
Oh, it's pagan. Because people bless the soul of the person so they don't escape from their physical bodies.
Sister- Right, it is difficult to change the little things, but we can please Jehovah by staying away from those things.
This is a scenario that happened when I accidentally (naturally) said "bless you" to the JW sister. When she asked what it meant, I just simply replied, "it's pagan." It is pagan because the soul escapes the body (?) It's ridiculous that the organization comes up with pathetic excuses for the simplest things, like even saying "bless you". It is just being polite, and nowadays, I doubt people view bless you as in the old times.
Can anyone explain why the JWs don't say bless you, besides being "pagan"?
