    Watchtower 1954 p.511 "Why do Watchtower publications now show Jesus with short hair and no beard? Because he is shown that way in older representations of him that are older then the traditional effeminate looking pictures."

    Watchtower 1968 p.286 "Bible evidence and a recent review shows that Jesus DID have a beard..." Charles Russell style of beard was popular at bethel...till Rutherford took over. He asked many to shave off their beards. Today the Witness beard fear seems to continue.

    I had a couple of run ins with P.O. / Elders over my 32 years as a JW about my beard and I regret to say I caved in then.

    But since 1993 I proudly wear my well trimmed beard ,and now i`m even letting my hair grow a bit longer ?

    Who knows when it will stop ?

    imho. every male should grow a beard, on their bucket list, to know what it feels to let the masculinity rip. before you r.i.p. moment in time.

    The only 2 perfect men on earth had beards, for want of good razors. be the 3rd perfect man.

    More often than not, a well-kept beard improves a man's appearance.

    And I have long suspected (even way back when I was still in) that the Org doesn't really want its members to be too pretty.

    A recent review ? What on earth’s that mean?

    Discussion in the printing company’s boardroom ?

    To think that millions swallow this as being “the troof”. 🙄
