The Watchtower Bible & Tract Society headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, USA, was founded over 100 years ago by Charles Taze Russell, who had no theological training, but adopted the title, "Pastor". His ideas were strange right from the beginning.
Early Watchtower magazines (3/15/13 & 1/15/12) reveal that he believed a person's desire to worship God was due to the shape of their brain. He believed that if a dog's head were shaped like a man's, the dog would think like a man!
He offered health advice too, believing appendicitis and typhoid fever were caused by "biting worms in the colon".(WT 01/15/12) He sold "miracle wheat" at greatly inflated prices.(WT 07/15/08). Despite all this, his followers then (and now) believed that he was God's "faithful and discreet slave" referred to in Matthew 24:45.(WT 03/01/17). After his death, his legacy, the Watch Tower organization became this sole channel for God in the eyes of its followers. (WT 04/01/19).
JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES BELIEVE & TEACH
THAT Jesus Christ (who is Michael the Archangel in their doctrine ) (WT 2/1/91 p.17) is mediator for only a small, elite, group within their ranks called the "anointed remnant". Others must come to this group who control the organization and earn their salvation by absolute obedience to it. (WT 04/01/79).
THAT all religions except their's are of Satan, and your Pastor or Priest is under the Devil's control. (Truth..E. Life p. 132-137)
THAT the Watchtower Society is the only source of truth on earth today, and all churches teach error and will be destroyed at Armageddon. (WT 04/01/88 p.24; Truth.. p.120,121).
THAT the cross is a pagan symbol of sex worship, and that all buildings or persons displaying the cross are likewise pagan. Jehovah's Witnesses deny that Jesus died on the cross. However, the Watchtower Magazine now admits they are not certain about the cross, but will continue to deny it anyway. (WT 8/15/87 p.29 Aid.. p.1608,9).
THAT no one goes to heaven but 144,000 Jehovah's Witnesses, and your soul will be destroyed if you refuse to join their organization. (WT 12/15/68 p.765-766; Truth...p.75-80).
THAT the Christ child was only an "IT", not a "HE". See the New World Translation, Luke 2:16,17. *
THAT Jesus was not the Christ (or Messiah) until age 30, even though their own bible says in Luke 2:11, "because there was born to you today a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." (Things in Which it is Impossible for God to Lie p. 211)
THAT after Jesus was buried in the tomb, Jehovah dissolved his body into gasses and it disappeared forever. (WT 09/01/53 p. 518; Time...Hand p. 129).
THAT Jesus rose invisibly in three days, so Jehovah had to "materialize" a fake body for him complete with fake nail prints so His disciples would believe it was really Jesus risen. (Make Sure..(52 ed.) p. 314)
THAT Armageddon and Christ's second coming were foretold to happen in 1874, 1914, 1925 and 1975 by this "nonprophet"organization. (WT10/1/1890p.1243;1/1892p.1354; Life Everl. (66 ed. p.29)
THAT when Christ failed to show up in 1914 The Society claimed in later years that He had come -- invisibly -- of course, and all Jehovah's Witnesses believe this today. (Light (30 ed). p. 194; Paradise on Earth..p.148)
THAT Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob etc. were to be back on earth as perfect humans in 1925. The Society built a palatial home for them BUT when the patriarchs failed to show up, the President of the Society moved in. (Millions..(20 ed) p. 89-90; WT 03/15/37 p. 86).
THAT their light gets "brighter and brighter", allowing for the many changes and "about faces" on their doctrines. Yesterday's error is today's "truth". Often the "light" bounces back and forth from old to new views and back again! Does real light return to darkness? (1 example Sodom: WT 06/01/52 p. 336; 08/01/65 p. 479; Rev..Climax..(88 ed) p. 273).
THAT the Watchtower Society and its followers are all prophets of God today and the Governing Body is directed by angels from God. (WT 01/15/59 p. 40-41; WT 4/1/72 p.200.
THAT salvation for Society members consists of doing the good works of placing Watchtower books and magazines and winning converts. (WT 08/15/72; Make Sure (65 ed) p. 438-9).
THAT soon Jehovah God will become a GRANDFATHER and Jesus will be promoted to "EVERLASTING FATHER"! (WT 08/01/95 p. 13).
THAT Jehovah God is not omnipresent, but still Almighty. Think! How can this be?(Light II (30 ed) p. 184). "The true God is not omnipresent for he is spoken as of having a location: (Insight into the Scriptures ,Vol 1, pg 969 (1988 edition)
The Pleiades - Jehovah's Throne From 1881 until 1953 the Watchtower believed that Jehovah resided at the centre of the universe on the star Alcyone in the cluster known as The Pleiades. And they knew this because the Great Pyramid in Egypt pointed this out.
In the 50's the Watchtower did a flip flop and told its followers that it is "useless to indulge in unprofitable speculations" such as the ones it was making back in the 20's. As usual the Watchtower used the well tried method of distancing itself from embarrassing flip flops by dismissing their earlier teachings by having it appear as a question from one of the rank and file witnesses. This way it appears to the reader that it is the congregational member's fault for believing such nonsense.
Below you will find what the Watchtower was saying about Alcyone.
The Watchtower November 1 1920
Some one asked me the other day: Suppose you should be here in 1925 what would you do? I said, I believe I will be home in the Pleiades before then ..Emphasis Added
Reconciliation 1928 p14
The constellation of the seven stars forming the Pleiades appears to be the crowning centre around which the known systems of the planets revolve even as our sun's planets obey the sun and travel in their respective orbits. It has been suggested, and with much weight, that one of the stars of that group is the dwelling-place of Jehovah and the place of the highest heavens;..
The constellation of the Pleiades is a small one compared with others which scientific instruments disclose to the wondering eyes of man. But the greatness in size of other stars or planets is small when compared with the Pleiades in importance, because the Pleiades is the place of the eternal throne of God [Emphases added]

They have not been told --
By the leadership of the Society
THAT when they translated their New World Translation of the Bible they deliberately altered almost every scripture on the deity of Christ, to make him only a creature.(Phil. 2:9; Heb. 1:8; Col. 1:16,17; Rev. 1:8; John 1: 1,2; Col. 2:9, John 8:58, 10:33 etc.).
THAT the Society used a translation by a SPIRIT MEDIUM, Johannes Greber, to support their rendering of John 1:1 with full knowledge that his sources were DEMONIC. Greber was exposed in the Feb. 15/56 W.T. However in 1961 they released a translation based on his occult one, then denied they knew what they were doing on page 31 of the Apr. 1, 1983 Watchtower!
THAT none of their "translating committee" knew Biblical Greek or Hebrew. No scholars at all. (Eyewitnesses & refusal to name translating committee),
THAT Fred Franz, who for many years headed the Society, perjured himself under oath in Scotland in a court trial, by saying he could read Hebrew, and then failing a simple Hebrew test. (Pursuer's Proof of Cross Exam. Nov. 24/54 p. 7 and p. 102).
THAT the following encyclopedias consider the name "JEHOVAH" to be FALSE Merits Student Enc.; Encyclopedia Americana; The Jewish Enc.; Encyclopedia International, The Interpreters Dictionary of the Bible; The New Catholic Enc.; The Universal Jewish Enc., etc. J.W.'s own "Aid" book admits on pages 884 & 885 that "Jehovah" was first recorded by a Catholic monk about 700 years ago!
THAT the date 1874 was taught for Christ's invisible presence by the Society until l929. (See their book, "Prophecy", page 65. sold until 1941. Also WT. Jan 1, 1924, p. 5).
THAT top executives of the Society have admitted under oath that they forced their members to accept false prophecies or face disfellowshipping and be found worthy of death. (Test. of F. Franz, 1954, p. 112-114 Scottish Records Office).
THAT the Watchtower Society was an associated member of the United Nations for many years, giving them their support, while at the same time calling the UN the "Scarlet-colored wild beast", the "disgusting thing", the "eighth king", linking the UN with Gog of Magog (Satan). When found out they quit the UN, but have also stopped badmouthing the UN, failing to mention them in the 6/01/03 WT. (See www.John Ankerberg.org/ (JW'sNov.01 & Aug 03).
THAT the JW Organization is infested with pedophiles who know they can only be caught if two witnesses testify against them.(www.silentlambs.org).
THAT true salvation is FREE (Eph. 2: 8 & 9), and consists of receiving the true Christ as your Savior. (John 1:12 , John 6: 28, 29).
We find the Watchtower Society practicing their belief that it is proper to deceive people. But they say this really isn't lying. Why? Because the Society has a different definition of lying than most of us. In their book "AID TO BIBLE UNDERSTANDING" under the word "LIE" we read
"Lying generally involves saying something false to a person who is ENTITLED to know the truth....". "While malicious lying is definitely condemned in the Bible, this does not mean that a person is under obligation to divulge truthful information to people who are not entitled to it".
Of course it is the Watchtower leaders that decide WHO deserves to know the truth. Do you deserve to know the truth? Write to us for further help.
