Really?  The WTS has pretty much discarded what Russell said the truth was and took some extra-ordinary steps, such as banning beards (on men ;)) to discourage the creature worship they felt was going to Russell.

As usual with WTS bans, the beard ban has undergone some 'adjustments' so that if it's a cultural thing in ones area, JW men are permitted beards now (still not for women, though ;))

So when you say "thank you" to Russell, do you believe he hears and answers you?

Its ONLY going about JEHOVAH'S WORD, the wonderful TRUTH, okay ?

Not about beards or especially clothes, etc. etc. All nations and tribes are SO different and in Jehovah's sense, I'm pretty sure.... Jehovah not wants Robots !   Our heart for Jehovah is most importend for him.

Discuss that in another area, I not like that here, under my postings. THANKS !

Oh, okay, my bad. :$ I thought you meant you were thanking Russell for what he actually taught as the truth.  Now I understand you are thanking him for God's Word, the Bible.

Well, of course I can see the Bible under his picture, but Russell didn't write the Bible so why are you thanking him for it unless you have in mind what he thought was the truth in the Bible (as I said earlier, most of what Russell said was the truth is rejected by current JWs).

Just wanted to be clear about why you are speaking to Russell.

NO, NO, NO...  thats  now  too  silly  for  me !   Without  C.T. Russell  and  the  other  first  Bible - researcher,  we  were  today  NOT  over  8  Millions  of  JW !!   WHAT  a  big  success  since  Brother  Russell,  WOW !!

And  now,  please  respect  my  wish,  NO  discuss  here,  its  finished !!!!

You've  your  area's  for  discuss  or  dispute....  I  know,  you  like  that  :D

Other folks have discussed photos that have been posted here.  Not that I have anything more to say about, but, why is this particular one not to have any discussion about it?

      A  Father  and  his  Daughter ❤
      A  father wanted to read a magazine,  but was being interrupted by his little girl.
      She wanted to know,  what the world looked like from above.
      In exasperation, he tore a sheet out of his new magazine on which was printed a satellite picture of the world.
      Tearing it into small pieces, he gave the bits to her and said,...
      " go into your room and see if you can put this together, this will show you the world as it is today "
      After a few minutes, she returned and handed him the map, correctly fitted and taped together.
      The father was surprised and asked how she had finished so quickly.
      " Oh ",... she said,
      " On the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus !
      When I got all of Jesus taped together where he belonged, then the whole world just came together "
      So...
      When we get Jesus back where he belongs, the whole world will come together
      See   JW.Org    and learn more about Jesus  ;o)

      The proconsul . . . became a believer.—Acts 13:12.
      http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/dt/r1/lp-e/2016/9/27
      Because the Jews were so widely dispersed throughout the Roman world, many non-Jews became familiar with the Hebrew Scriptures. They learned that there is only one true God and that those who serve him are held to high ethical and moral standards. Moreover, the Hebrew Scriptures were filled with prophecies concerning the Messiah. (Luke 24:44) Both Jews and Christians understood that the Hebrew Scriptures were the inspired Word of God, which made it possible for Paul to establish common ground with those whose hearts were inclined toward righteousness. Accordingly, the apostle customarily entered synagogues of the Jews and reasoned with them from the Scriptures. (Acts 17:1, 2) The Jews regularly met together in synagogues or at open-air meeting places. They sang songs, prayed, and discussed the Scriptures. Similar practices are followed in Christian congregations today. w15 2/15 3:16, 17

    • 7:26 But the Court sat, and they took away his rulership, in order to annihilate him and to destroy him completely. 27 “‘And the kingdom and the rulership and the grandeur of the kingdoms under all the heavens were given to the people who are the holy ones of the Supreme One. Their kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all rulerships will serve and obey them.’   28 “This is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts alarmed me greatly, so that I turned pale; but I kept the matter in my own heart.”
    • Does anyone remember about 4 years ago when someone came on this forum (jw-archive.org at the time) and said they had just been through real estate training for the Society, because the Society, they said, was going to be one of the biggest buyers and sellers of real estate? I got the impression that this person was already preparing for their specific assignment with an assigned partner to scout out better places purchase KH properties somewhere in the U.S. That person gave the impression that this was about to kick off all around the United States, perhaps even further abroad. That was many months before the Society announced their cash flow problems, and long before we started hearing about the sales of so many KHs and even a couple of AHs.  This is no doubt correct. The Society did the same thing in the Brooklyn area, as sometimes they would need to bring in a brother who had his family with him. There was also a need to house certain elderly brothers and sisters in a place where they could get physical therapy, nursing visits, palliative care, etc., with some privacy and out of the way of the hustle and bustle of Bethel life.
    • All you really must remember is that if you got ot wrong back then you would be dismembered and your house turned into a public privy. (Daniel 2:5, 3:29) It is Holy Spirit by the truckload. Anyone else takes a wrong understanding to his grave, either through natural death or walking off a precipice with it and leading others with him.  Holy Spirit makes people honest, humble, and hungry enough to continually look at Scriptures anew in light of ongoing developments. Go read @b4ucuhear‘s comment again, not just the single sentence you quoted. Read all of them. Notice how they tie together and modify each other. That is what sentences do.
    • So the " great crowd"  will learn all things by themselves?  They do not need an organized  place to attend meetings? .... which is instructed by the bible to attend so we can strengthen each other? This is why I call you out as misleading and false....... where is your worldwide organization which is providing place for people of all nations to gather and worship jehovah?  And teach them live and neutrality so they truly view themselves as one nation with no borders dividing them...... There are so many other scriptures which indicate otherwise while you create an argument over the only scripture that 'may' indicate it because of an argument over a preposition....... are you changing the entire truth based on your 'desire' to start 'ruling now?    We are being 'taught ' now by that 'slave'  you hate.     But you may be running ahead about the 1000 year reign..... don't you think?   Don't be patronizing to me..... I know that because of jehovahs spirit working in them.   But the bible clearly indicates that they will judge and rule when they are in heaven......   
    • Nothing is beyond your extreme criticism lol.  Go buy yourself a little patch in London or in any other capital city like New York and see what it costs you.   If they needed a space for someone or a worker, or even for guests or whatever, they would have bought it because it was needed at the time and is now no longer needed.   Says the exceedingly worldly guy......  If they sell the property to help brothers they are wicked and if they buy it to help brothers they are wicked....... do you sound reasonable to yourselves?   Thanks to Jehovah you are not the final judges because you will put all JWs in Auschwitz......just for being JWs..... ah, you may still help the world to do that in future ..... who knows? 
    • Now I understand why many executives disallow any reports to them longer than one page. They KNOW how easy it is to be hypnotized by many words, which for some, is a finely tuned art form.
    • Lol. Same thoughts here. That is why I posted it, genuinely wondering if anyone really read it when it was first published. But then people did read a lot more 50 years ago...... but then they also might have been clueless and just, like I said, zeroed in on the number 1975, which was a mere 7 years away at the time..... If it's any consolation, I only read to about paragraph 10 😃
