Charles Taze Russell was chosen by God Jehovah to reveal to mankind the way to salvation in this time of the end.
charles taze russell embarks on a public speaking program that takes him all over the world with him giving lectures in many countrys .
My question to jehovahs Witnesses : Was that holy spirit , inspired revelations that he gave ? Was that new light from Jehovah ? new truths ?
When Judge rutherford took over the presidency of the "Watchtower " he came out with a lot of different interpretations as regards bible prophecy and their application , a lot of it nullifying what C.T.Russell had espoused .
Was jehovah wrong when he gave this information to C.T.Russell ?, seeing its been changed now.
When Nathan H. Knorr came on the scene , nothing much had changed except for the fact that he threw a lot of what J.F.Rutherford had to say to the scrapheat as being old light.
And so it goes on , Freddie Franz relegated Nathan H. Knorrs new light to the waste basket as did the successors to Freddie Franz .
To an intelligent thinking person , old light means something was false , new light means you have a new interpretation of what you formally beleived was wrong.
So the bottom line is , C.T. Russell was wrong
Judge F. Rutherford was Wrong
Fred Franz was wrong
and the present day Governing body are also wrong.
New light only appears after history proves old light failed to eventuate .
