      After the death of Brother Russell in 1916, J.F. Rutherford took control of the WBTS, contrary to the instructions in Brother Russell’s Will and the Watchtower Bylaws.  By 1931 J.F. Rutherford had fundamentally transformed the WBTS into an authoritative theocratic organization.  J.F. Rutherford renamed the group from Bible Students to “Jehovah’s Witnesses,” in order to distinguish itself from the various groups formed by the 75% of original Bible Students no longer associated with the WBTS.  Hundreds of these Bible Student congregations worldwide have continued to the present, thus constituting a continuation of the original IBSA.
      The International Bible Students have always been actively engaged in witnessing the Truth to the world and our beliefs remain unchanged since the days of Brother Russell.  We continue to treasure the Studies in the Scriptures, early Watchtowers and other writings of Brother Russell.   We believe that the light continues to shine brighter (clearer), but that it never changes.  If we agree that the Truth has changed, then it never was the Truth in the first place.

      The last thing the Governing Body and JW Organization would want to do is bring Bible Students to court over publishing rights. This would draw attention to the existence of the original Bible Students (who supposedly died out according to JW Org). Also, an investigation of the history would reveal a hostile and illegal takeover of the Watchtower by Rutherford and his supporters, which would be a public relations nightmare. The original Watchtower Directors eventually decided not to take legal action as some brethren pointed them to these Bible verses.
      So questions.
      Who are the ( ORIGINAL ) INTERNATIONAL BIBLE STUDENTS ASSOCIATION ?  Because they seem to be in opposition to JW Org. 
      BUT, IBSA London Properties says this :-
      About Us
        IBSA London Properties is part of IBSA (International Bible Students Association) a registered charity acting on behalf of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Britain and Ireland. For more information about Jehovah’s Witnesses please follow this link.
      On the one hand we have an IBSA that say " This would draw attention to the existence of the original Bible Students (who supposedly died out according to JW Org)."
      But then we have the IBSA London Properties that say that they are " a registered charity acting on behalf of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Britain and Ireland.
      @TrueTomHarley ridicules me about my idea concerning the True Anointed. So I'm just wondering if an International Bible Students Association could  provide the answer. After all wasn't it them that first had the 'new light' ?

      Al fondo está el acueducto romano que llevaba agua hasta la Colina de Palatino . La Vía Apia terminaba en esta zona y probablemente es por donde entró el apóstol Pablo a Roma. (Ver el vídeo de estudio bíblico, capítulo 1 de Romanos.) Compartido por m_salina69.

      The Jehovah’s Witnesses from all of Italy speaking the TWI language, will be attending their second circuit assembly for 2016 which will be held at the Jehovah’s Witnesses Assembly Hall in via Maleviste, 1 in Treviso on Saturday 23 April 2016.

      The theme of the assembly is based on Hebrews 13:7 which is taken from the Bible, “Imitate their Faith.”

      Throughout the world assemblies are arranged per area and are attended by the local congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses, their families, friends and those that are studying the Bible with them.

      Today, anxieties of life, sickness, death, family hardships, unemployment, breakdown in marriage, drug and alcohol abuse and various other challenges take away the joy of life - the Bible offers hope and answers to these problems.

      All in attendance will benefit by the well prepared talks, demonstrations, interviews and experiences which will relate to the theme "Imitate their Faith".

      Highlights for the morning session include talks which are entitled: Do exactly what I do, Imitate the endurance of the prophets and How has their conduct turned out.

      The morning session will conclude with the baptismal talk and thereafter candidates will be baptized by complete water immersion.

      After the break the program will resume at 1.20pm with experiences and a series of talks and symposiums.

      The closing talk will be of great value for those who are striving to live by Bible principles and is appropriately entitled: "Imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises".

      The programme will end at 3.55pm. Jehovah’s Witnesses welcome the public to attend, entrance is free and no collections are taken.

      For more information visit the website: www.jw.org or call +39 3472532702 for more details about the assembly.

      Many NGOs have denounced worldwide the severe persecution of the Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses that is taking place in Russia.
      This issue was also discussed in Italy in two important conferences held in the Chamber of Deputies, respectively organized by AIDLR (International Association for the Defence of Religious Liberty) on October 26, 2016, and by CESNUR (Center for Studies on New Religions) on March 22, 2017.
      The current situation of this religious organization in Russia is heavily effected by the approval and entry into force of the controversial “Yarovaya law” that struck indiscriminately all churches other than the Russian Orthodox Church. An international chorus of voices was raised in recent months in defence of the Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses.
      Five Members of the Italian Parliament decided to add their voices to this chorus denouncing the serious violations of religious freedom of Jehovah's Witnesses in Russia, asking questions to the Italian Parliament (Legislature 17, Question n. 2/01744 - Published on April 3, 2017, at session n. 772).
      On. Rostellato, Lacquaniti, Paola Boldrini, Oliviero and Tieri reminded that
      "The Constitution of the Russian Federation -Art. 28- guarantees freedom of religion, including the right to profess a faith individually, collectively or to not profess any, to freely choose, have and to disseminate religious beliefs. The Constitution - Art. 30 - provides that everyone has the right to freely associate".
      Moreover, Jehovah's Witnesses are legally recognized in over 220 countries of the world, their religious activities are peaceful and respectful of other people's freedom and of the law, according to the European Court of Human Rights, in more than 47 judgments.
      Therefore, in light of the above, Deputies ask
      "Whether the Italian Government is aware of the facts outlined in the introduction and if it intends to take diplomatic initiatives to raise awareness in the Russian Government to respect the professions of faith in the Russian territory".

      According to some websites, it appears there's going to be a transferral of several departments out of Rome and to Imola (Bologna) in November, along with the sale of some property in the capital.
      Are they downsizing? Anyone know what's going on?
