    I love these quotes...

    "...it is plain that the forming of a visible organization of such gathered out ones would be out of harmony with the spirit of the divine plan." (Watchtower, December 1, 1894, page 1743)

    "Beware of 'organization' It is wholly unnecessary." (Watchtower, September 15, 1895, page 1866)

    "Will the people continue to be hoodwinked by these false prophets, who are wise in their own conceits and who pose as preachers of the gospel, or will they be guided by the plain Word of God, which is now due to be understood? Let each hearer answer for himself." (Watchtower, May 1, 1935; page 142)

    "We need to examine, not only what we personally believe, but also what is taught by any religious organization with which we may be associated. Are its teachings in full harmony with God's Word, or are they based on the traditions of men? If we are lovers of the truth, there is nothing to fear from such an examination. It should be the sincere desire of every one of us to learn what God's will is for us, and then to do it." (The Truth that Leads to Eternal Life, page 13)

    You'll never see that stuff in todays publications. They then realized the power of mind control at some point . Now it's you must obey the org. don't question anything . Quite a bit of a change there.

    The publications say "Russell was the orginization," that's why it nearly collapsed when he died.
