The scriptures say all will be resurrected, some to eternal life, others to judgment. So I wondered what's going to happen to those who wore beards during mortality? Picture if Charles Taze Russell was resurrected and came face to face with Joseph Rutherford, second president of TWT (the whole tamale) and the instigator of the beardless policy. Russell, now imbued with divine knowledge, knows Rutherford largely banned beards because of his jealousy of him, Charles.
Now Charles has come forth in celestial glory to do whatever the 144,000 do, and he has no problem with himself or 143,998 of the others.
So what happens? Who decides what the new policy is and does Russell get to sport his newly resurrected facial hair, not one of which will be lost, we're told, or does clean shaven Rutherford call the shots?
In the eternal scheme of things, who will call the shots in the
144,000 -- Russell or Rutherford? Will Russell be compelled
to surrender his whiskers in compliance with a policy set by
by his successor? Or will Rutherford's edict fall before the in-
fluence of the greatest of all Bible Students?
