I read the letter from the J.W. about Russell. I have done a lot of
research to do this letter. The public should know the REST OF THE STORY!
That is such a common thing to do is try to put David Icke on the same level as they are. They are experts at soft-soaking what they really believe. For this reason I will remain unknown. Feel free to print this letter.

I am writing in regard to the article by Debra Caruthers. First I would like to comment to Debra that I congratulate her for being able to think independently in spite of the admonitions not to written by the watchtower. Here are some examples located in the Watchtower, February 15, 1979, P. 20
"In a world where people are tossed about by confusing winds of religious doctrine, Jehovah's people need to be stable, full-grown Christians. (Eph 4:13,14) their position must be steadfast, not shifting quickly because of independent thinking or emotional pressures (Col.1:23; 26,7
The Watchtower, Jan. 15, 1983,p.22
"Avoid independent thinking! How is such independent thinking manifested? A common way is by questioning the council that is provided by God's visible organization."
The Watchtower, Jan. 15, 1983, p.27
"Fight Against Independent Thinking! Yet there are some who point out that the organization has had to make adjustments before, and so they argue: that shows that we have to make up our own mind on what we believe.' This is independent thinking. Why is it the dangers? Such thinking is an evidence of pride."
I would also like to comment on her question No. 4. Do Jehovah's Witnesses use mind control to get people as members, or to retain members?
I was a Jehovah Witness for 37 years. I disassociated myself from the organization due to the extreme control and manipulation of the people. Because I choose not to be a Jehovah Witness I am ostracized and shunned. I am not allowed to see my relatives that are still trapped in a hard and cold and unforgiving religion.
I am not allowed to see my nieces and nephews. The shunning laws are breaking up many families, causing many divorces, also driving people to suicide. And you say Jehovah's Witnesses do not use mind control? Haven't you been reading the organization's publications? I will give you some examples.
The Watchtower, December 1, 1952, p.735
"It is proper for a Christian witness of Jehovah to have business relationships with one who has been disfellowshipped? Generally speaking, it would be desirable for us to have no contact with disfellowshipped persons, either in business or in social and spiritual ways."
The Watchtower, July 15, 1963, p.443
"In the case of the disfellowshipped relative who does not live in the same house, contact with him is also kept to what is absolutely necessary. As with secular employment, this contact is limited and even curtailed completely if at all possible."
The Watchtower, July 15, 1963, p.443
"We should not see how close we can get to relatives who are disfellowshipped from Jehovah's organization, but we should' quit mixing in company' with them.
Organization, 1972 ed., p 172
"In faithfulness to God, none in the congregation should greet such persons when meeting them in public nor should they welcome these into their homes."
The Watchtower, September 15, 1981, p.29
"Christian is related to such a disfellowshipped person living outside the home should strive to avoid needless association, even keeping business dealings to a minimum." This great country that we live in guarantees us freedom of religion. My choice is not to be a Jehovah witness, however because of my choice
The Watchtower 7/15,61, p.420 says In order to hate what is bad a Christian must hate the person with whom the badness is inseparably linked.
Also in the Watchtower 10/1/52 p.599 in a says "We must hate in truest sense, which is to regard would extreme and active aversion, to consider as loathsome, odious, filthy, to detest. Surely any haters of God are not fit to live on his beautiful earth. What do you do with anything loathsome or repugnant that you detest and abhor? The answer is simple. You get away from it or remove from your presence. You do not want to have anything at all to do with it. This must be exactly our attitude toward the haters of Jehovah. I will add one more.
The Watchtower 6/15/80 p.8 we want to hate those who willfully show themselves haters of Jehovah, haters of what is good. We hate them in the sense of avoiding them as we would poison or a poisonous snake, or they can poisonous us spiritually. Bad associations spoil useful habits 1 Cor. 15:33
I would also like to comment on Jehovah's Witnesses are opposed to Satanic warship in all forms.
I will challenge you on that too. I will start in the book REVELATION- ITS GRAND CLIMAX NEAR AT HAND! I will start on page l43 The first woe-Locusts the 20th century plague. Reasonably, we could expect to Joel's prophecy to have a final settlement in the time to the end. How true this has proved to be! At the Bible students convention at Cedar point, Ohio, U.S. A. September1-8, 1919, a notable outpouring of Jehovah's spirit activated his people to organize a global campaign of preaching out all professed Christians, they alone, recognizing that Jesus had been enthralled as heavenly king, spared no effort in publishing a broad the good news. Their relentless witnessing, in fulfillment of prophecy, became a tormenting plague to apostate Christiandom. When I want to find out what a word means I go to Strongs Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. The story of the Locusts comes from Rev. 9:11"and they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Adaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. Of course this is referring to the locusts. Strongs says Apollyon is no 623 a destroyer (I.E. Satan) Appollyon. The root word is no. 622 To destroy fully-die,lose, mar.
In the Revelations Climax book page 144 is a subliminal portraying Satan, with a big S which stands for Satan. Fallen Angels (geocities.com) Angels of the Apocalypse. He is also the Sovereign of the bottomless pit. He is also described as the angel of death and destruction, demon of the abyss and chief of demons in the underworld. In some references Abbadon is still an angel of heaven, but most references have him in hell. The A enclosed with a circle means animal as well as human sacrifices. This can be found in the Watch-tower 5/15/90 page 7. This tells us the Watchtower is involved in Satanism and human sacrifice.
One more subliminal to look at is in the Revelations book is page 159. If you look closely at Jesus'hand you will notice some kind of devil, or something, Look for yourself. 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love, perfect love casts out fear, he who fears is not made perfect in love. Love is the answer. Fear builds strength in some people but the unconditional love of our heavenly father will overcome all fear.
May you keep searching and I pray you will find the truth.
