    I just can't keep my mouth shut...

    I was told on the weekend of a person who has been studying for a long time and finally made the commitment to be baptized. How do they know this.....he shaved off his beard which he has had for forty years. His beard covered a small growth on his neck and he always kept it nice and trim..looked great on him.

    Anyway I asked what publication points out that beards should not be worn...of course I know there are none specifically. I then asked... I hope there is some counsel on this from the governing body using the scriptures because otherwise it would be a verbal tradition of men....ouch.

    This audio clip is from our Circuit Assembly held during the 1990-1991 service year. Brother Joseph Howard, District Overseer, discusses why Jehovah's Witnesses do not wear

    This might add some old light...*LOL*

    And for fun...

    There have been times where moustaches have been frowned upon as well. I remember one guy from the hall on stage tearfully tell the whole congregation that though he had one for years, so as not to stumble anyone, he shaved it off.

    What a load.
