Lies and Cover-Ups in Watchtower History

Charles Taze Russell10 Questions For Jehovah’s Witnesses on Watchtower History

Jehovah God is a God of Truth. Since God “cannot lie” (Titus 1:2), it stands to reason that He would not be behind an organization that lies to cover-up its history. If the Watchtower is dishonest about its history, what does this say about its claim to represent God?

1. Did the Watchtower claim that they “never” published a biography of Pastor Russell?

They believe they already possess “the Truth.” So, in their minds, they don’t think you have anything to offer them. Their only purpose in being at your door is to teach you; not you them. So, how can a Christian get through to a Jehovah’s Witness who believes he or she already has all the answers? Continue reading “How to Witness Effectively to Jehovah’s Witnesses”
