This is in response to a paragraph at:
The paragraph purports some secret of Charles Taze Russell, evidently as related to the freemasons’ organization, and Russell is assumed to be the founder of the Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Charles Taze Russell was not the founder of the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization. No such organization existed in the days of Russell, and Russell actively preached against such sectarianism and authoritarianism until the day he died. Additionally, the JWs’ alleged “Good News” of bad tidings of great woe for most of the people that they will eternally destroyed is almost the opposite of the glad tidings of great joy for all the people that Russell preached. Thus, it is misleading to say that Russell was the founder of that which he did not believe, and which he actively preached against. See the categories, “Sectarianism“, “Sole Channel/Authority“, “Gospel/Good News“, “Founder of the JWs?”, and “Church Organization” on the “Focus on Charles Taze Russell” website.
It is claimed that Russell is buried under a pyramid monument. This statement is totally false. Russell is not buried under a pyramid monument. See: “Russell’s Grave”
Additionally, Rutherford’s pyramid monument has nothing at all to do the Freemasons’ organization. It has nothing to do with being coincidence of not being a coincidence since the Great Pyramid was not built by the Freemasons; I (and many thousands of Christians) believe it was built under the direction of Yahweh (Jehovah). Regardless, the Great Pyramid is not a structure that belongs to the Freemasons. And, contrary to what many have claimed, the Bible is not a book of the Freemasons.
Russell was not a member of the Freemasons’ organization. We have tens of thousands of pages of his works that give overwhelming evidence that he was not a member of such an organization. See: “Freemasons” and “Pyramidology“.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 8 so far )
Something that keeps popping up over and over on the internet is the idea that Charles Taze Russell was buried in/under a pyramid. Statements are made in reference to Russell’s pyramid memorial, Russell’s pyramid tomb, Russell’s pyramid tombstone, Russell’s pyramid gravestone, etc. This is usually stated in the context of efforts to “prove” that Russell was a member of the Freemasons or that he belong to a secret organization called “The Illuminati.” It is being imagined and assumed that Rutherford’s pyramid monument that was constructed a few years after Russell’s death is a Freemasons’ pyramid, and/or that it is an “Illuminati” pyramid, and it is being imagined and assumed that the cross and crown symbol on that pyramid is a Masonic symbol, and based on these imaginations and assumptions it is being claimed that what is being imagined and assumed is proof that Russell was a member of the Freemasons, and/or a member of the Illuminati.
Russell, however, advised several times that Christians should remain free from all such “secret” organizations; that they were soon to be destroyed, etc. The tens of thousands of pages that have been produced from Russell’s works attest beyond any shadow of a doubt that Russell was not a member of these secret organizations.
Nevertheless, to set the matter straight concerning where Russell is buried, there is no pyramid on Russell’s tomb. There is a pyramid monument that was built several years later in the middle of the WTS plot of the Rosemont Cemetery, but that monument is not a tomb, nor is there anyone at all buried under or in that monument.
The picture at this link shows where Russell is buried:
The picture at this link is not where Russell is buried:
This monument was meant to serve as memorial for all the workers who died at that WTS headquarters; it was not a monument built solely as a memorial to Russell. This can be seen by the many names inscribed on that monument.
