January Awake, 1972:
After the assembly in Fargo, North Dakota, a local resident wrote a letter-to the city?s television station, WDAY, which said, in part:
"I have lived here in Fargo for over fifty years and conventions have come and gone, but after they have ?gone??what a mess . . .
"Not so, however, with the Jehovah?s Witnesses. First, they literally scrubbed the auditorium, and that they had scrubbed themselves was evident in their dress and appearance. None of the male members bedecked themselves in long hair, whiskers or patched and threadbare jeans. Amongst the ladies there was no evidence of ?mini? skirts, shorts or other distasteful or lustful appearance. The children were all neatly dressed, combed and well behaved. . . . Their conduct was unreproachable."
Would you like to live under a government whose citizens all abide by the fine moral standards of God?s Word? The Bible explains that soon God?s kingdom will destroy all present earthly governments, and will be the only government controlling earth?s affairs. (Matt. 6:9, 10; Dan. 2:44) Only those who truly love righteousness and give allegiance to God?s rule will then be permitted by God to live on earth.
