e, the difference between our statements is that in mine, the first part does not make sense without the second (maybe I should’ve used a semicolon instead of a period). “Don’t be frum from birth” by itself makes no sense. It needs the second part. “Don’t be frum from birth, [but] from growth”.

In your case, not getting TB makes sense in an of itself.

TRS: maybe what was meant was “get BT [as your spouse]”.
