J. F. Rutherford became the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society's second president in 1916 upon the death of it's founder and first president, C. T. Russell. Rutherford held this position until his death at the San Diego mansion, Beth-Sarim, on January 8, 1942. Under the leadership of "Judge" Rutherford, as he was called, the Jehovah's Witnesses received most of the doctrine and chronology that they have today and which is unique to their cult.

The Watchtower magazine was the main publication by the Society that was used by God to transmit to the remnant the new "light" on the Bible. Jehovah was viewed as being the One who was responsible for the contents of the magazine. They merely published these revelations after Jehovah through Christ revealed it to them:

It is announced with confidence that the Lord uses the columns of The Watchtower to transmit to his consecrated people things that he reveals to them and provides for them to know. It is the privilege of The Watchtower to publish explanation of the prophecies... There is no attempt on the part of The Watchtower to interpret prophecy, for the reason that no human creature can interpret prophecy.

Rutherford was listed as the author of all JW books from 1926 until his death in 1942 and "supervised everything that went into" The Watchtower magazine. 19 Putting all this together, the upshot of this would seem to be that no one could understand a Scripture text or a book of the Bible until Rutherford published one of his books that explained it!

for example, the Society said that the book of Ezekiel could not be understood by anyone until Rutherford wrote his three volumes entitled Vindication in 1931 and 1932. In advertisements for the first volume, The Golden Age magazine said:

JEHOVAH caused to be written, more than 2500 years ago, what in the Bible is called Ezekiel's prophecy. During the centuries that prophecy has been a mystery sealed to all who have sought to unlock it. God's due time has now come for the prophecy to be understood.

They said similar things about the book of Revelation and the publication of Rutherford's books Light I and Light II that explained it:

For nearly 2000 years the Book of Revelation, written in highly symbolical language, has been a sealed book. Now, because the time is ripe, LIGHT unlocks the seals.

The book of Revelation was a "sealed" book until Rutherford's Light I and II were published in 1930. The book of Ezekiel was a "mystery" to all until 1931 and 1932 when Rutherford published his three volumes entitled Vindication. Only then could the prophecy of Ezekiel be understood for the first time during the past two and a half millenniums! It is therefore easy to see why The Golden Age stated:

Every reader of The Golden Age knows that we consider Judge Rutherford's books the most important ones in the world.

They were considered the most important books in the world because without them you could not understand the Bible. Since Rutherford claimed what he wrote explained portions of the Bible for the first time in centuries or millennia and that these interpretations came from God, he was consistent in also claiming that what he wrote was not his opinion or interpretation of Scripture.

It is interesting to note that with all of these "wonderful" accomplishments of RUTHERFORD, if you go to www.watchtower.org and do a search in that site...merely type in the word "rutherford" you will only get TWO RETURNS!

It is obvious to anyone that the cult of the Jehovah's Witnesses is, without a doubt, doing a huge cover up.

It's a cult!

I wouldn't say that is proof that they are trying to cover up something. That seems a bit to conspiracy theory to me. I'm not against conspiracy theory's either; if they have some substance. IMO, That one doesn't. Their main objective is to draw people to God; not a man. If they had more articles on Rutherford, they would probably be accused of worshiping him. It seems they couldn't win either way.

I am open to listen to what you have to say and evaluate it, if you can give me proof of your sayings. Like documentation, witnesses, etc.

Another regurgitation of Watchtower ministries by our enlightened plagarizing cut and paster LAFF/ TD.

The guy has no argument without someone else doing the thinking for him.

I did a Google search on Judge Rutherford. I went to.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Franklin_...

I felt they would not be to bias. I didn't want to go to a JW hate site because the obviously have bias. I am sure Jehovah's Witnesses would too. It is always good to check with a source who has nothing to gain or lose. I'm wikipedia has no reason to exaggerate and or lie. I think it is important to know something about the founders of ones faith. One thing that I thought was funny and cute was, he made money as a door to door salesmen for encyclopedias. LOL!:-)

A big clue is if you go to www.watchtower.org and do a search on "russell" you will get 12 returns.

If you do a search on "rutherford" you will get 2 returns.

I believe it's a coverup. But you can interpret that anyway you choose.

Both were presidents of the group.

It is my own opinion that much more took place under the leadership of Rutherford, than Russell.

I don't what is your point? One of Rutherford's best friend was Fred Franz. Did you went to his funeral? It doesn't matter, yet he was one of his best friend.

And where are you proof that he had houses and cars and boats? This items belong not to Rutherford but WTBS.

And dont forget that Rutherford was the false prophet who predicted the return of the old testament worthies in 1925,,, He even purchased the house in san deiago for them to live in, BETH SARIM.. The deeds to that property explains that it was for the use of Abraham, Jacob, David, etc,,... The "Judge" himself lived and died in it ,,,, a testimony to false prophecey if ever there was one.. Jesus warned us that in the last days false prophets would arise, and Rutherford has fulfilled those words of warning,,, The WTBTS has a 100% record of false prophecy,,, what other evidence do you need ??

The deed to the house is public information.

Are you really that ignorant?

Is there no google search on your computer??

Sorry, I'm not your servant. Public information is easy to find...unless you are really illiterate, as you appear to be.

How did I switch the subject.

Was your mother a crack addict?

Are you brain dead?

THE DEED TO THE HOUSE WAS IN RUTHERFORD'S NAME.

THE EXTRAVAGANT AUTOMOBILES WERE BOUGHT BY RUTHERFORD.

RUTHERFORD USED THE MONEY FROM THE CULT TO PAY FOR HIS MISTRESS.

THERE WERE ONLY 4 PEOPLE AT HIS FUNERAL. HIS WIFE AND ONLY SON, MALCOLM, WERE NOT THERE.

THIS MAN WAS HATED AND AN EMBARRASSMENT TO THE CULT.

NOW, DOPEY, PROVE ME WRONG!!!

AL CAPONE HAD MORE MORALS THAN JUDGE (BOOZE) RUTHERFORD.
