Mr. Rutherford took a lesson from Christendom's clergy!
jv chap. 6 pp. 69-70 A Time of Testing (1914-1918) - "March 15, 1918, the Watch Tower Society released the tract Kingdom News No. 1. - “Religious Intolerance - Pastor Russell’s Followers Persecuted Because They Tell the People the Truth.”.....The instigators? The tract pulled no punches in pointing to the clergy, who were described as “a bigoted class of men who have systematically endeavored......to throttle all Bible teaching unless it comes through them.”
The coal calling the kettle black - yet again!
Intolerance? Inconceivable within the WTBTS! :(
Thanks for sharing. Which publication is "jv" an abbreviation for?
Jehovah’s Witnesses—Proclaimers of God’s Kingdom
“a bigoted class of men who have systematically endeavored......to throttle all Bible teaching unless it comes through them.”
Keep in mind that this accusation comes from the alleged God-selected "faithful slave" - isn't this exactly what the current "slave" dictated in the September 2007 Kingdom Ministry - "Don't do any research of doctrines in groups which are not under our control."
The Fall Guy - "Rutherford took a lesson from Christendom's clergy..."
Let's be honest, folks.
That's just good business.
