Miracle Wheat – Found Guilty?

Posted on April 13, 2010. Filed under: Is it true what they say? | Tags: , |


This is in response to a blog entitled: 7 Bones To Pick With C.T. Russell & The Jehovah’s Witnesses.

The author of the blog, like most people, assumes Charles Taze Russell to have been associated with the Jehovah’s Witnesses. In fact, Charles Taze Russell was never associated with an organization such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses. He did not believe in such an authoritarian organization.

The statement is made that Russell was “was found guilty of selling phony ‘Miracle Wheat'”. In fact, Charles Taze Russell was never found guilty in any court of selling any ‘phony’ Miracle Wheat. Russell did loose his suit of The Daily Eagle, but no charge was made against Russell of selling any phony wheat. Russell’s attorney had the task of trying to show the Jury The Eagle’s malice — that it really was attacking Russell along religious grounds; that it had set itself as the champion of certain clerical enemies of Russell, and was seeking to destroy Russell’s influence. In the court-room sat about twenty-five people who had come long distances at their own expense to have an opportunity to speak a word in Russell’s behalf. Through some intricacies of the Law respecting evidence, these were unable to be heard in Russell’s behalf.

Nor is it true that Russell himself “sold” this wheat. The wheat was offered for sale by some Bible Students who wished to donate the proceeds from the wheat, not to Russell, but to the Watch Tower Society.

The statement is made that Russell “claimed that this ‘Miracle Wheat’ was superior to regular wheat, and would grow five times as fast as any other brand.” Russell himself made no claims for the wheat. However, I have found no claim made by anyone that this wheat would grow “five times as fast as any other brand”. Nevertheless, the superiority of Stoner’s miracle wheat was proven in court.
