    To me 1919 is an awesome date because in that year, Jesus choose the WT as the sole representative of his true faith and what were they doing at that time?

    Celebrating Bdays, Christmas and using the Cross as their symbol, using the KJV of the bible too.

    Old school Baby !!

    And Jesus approved !

    Righteous indeed.

    Plus still thinking that Jesus had returned in I think it was what about the part of 'finds him waiting' in I think it was Lukes version of the FDS.......

    coffee_black said "They believed that Adam was the first Pharoah and was buried in the Sphynx. "

    I would really appreciate where I could find proof of this statement. I downloaded the special March Watchtower of 1918, but found no results.
