Pay close attention to point #3 of the November 15, 2013 (page 20, par. 17): Elders who are reading this article can draw some useful conclusions from the account we have just considered: (1) The most practical step that we can take to prepare for the coming attack of "the Assyrian" is that of strengthening our faith in God and helping our brothers to do the same. (2) When "the Assyrian" attacks, the elders must be absolutely convinced that Jehovah will deliver us. (3) At that time, the lifesaving direction that we receive from Jehovah's organization may not appear practical from a human standpoint. All of us must be ready to obey any instructions we may receive, whether these appear sound from a strategic or human standpoint or not. (4) Now is the time for any who may be putting their trust in secular education, material things, or human institutions to adjust their thinking. The elders must stand ready to help any who may now be wavering in their faith.

"NOW IS THE TIME" How many times have I heard that.
Are they still telling people not to pursue a college education? They sure take advantage of those with a degree to get ahead at the WTBTS. Who else would have the abilities to write the books and magazines grammatically correct without a degree behind it?
Material things? For years, in my case, starting back in the 70's they discouraged us from buying a house, complained when we bought a new car and REALLY complained when it only had 2 doors. But with 3 children under age 5, we did not even consider back doors. If they couldn't use our car for service, cool... we saved on the gas and the wear and tear. *heehee*

Hi Andrea, I am looking forward to meeting you. I already have my work scheduled changed so that I have that Thu. off and not have to rush home on the 21st. I get up at 2:30am each day. So I will be able to enjoy myself.

Can someone give me an idea of how many could be attending this next meetup at Denny's, including the age range?
