Why are they bothering if armageddon(tm) is so close?
I expect when the end comes, the organisation will be in the middle of a large project somewhere.
The latest watchtowers all say live in expectation of it at all times, but just like the organisation have plans plans for the future.
This is why they are really pushing young people to go and get trained in useful skills.
There is a misconception that JWs dont like education or further education. This is simply not true.
The truth is JWs are very much pro education, they just think nowadays university is a waste of 4 or so years, its a missalocation of time.
Now all young people leaving school are encouraged to get real skills, something useful. But to keep a simple life.
We are told to have real skills, real friends, and real assets. Im thankful JWs are now staying away from all stock markets, they are all looking top heavy.
Many Jws are stacking gold and silver, especially silver bullion because it is so very cheap right now at $13oz.
