PAGAN SYMBOLS ON WATCHTOWER PUBLICATIONS

   Examining the very first issue of "Zion's Watch Tower" Russell's followers should have been alerted to his intentions to fuse the occult with Christianity when he stated:
   
"A truth presented by Satan himself is just as true as a truth stated by God" ...and..."accept truth wherever you find it."
   
Also, one should take note of the symbols on the top corners of the cover page of an early Watchtower magazine (Zion's Watchtower, 10-15-14. The cross and the crown are the exact symbols of the Knights Templar degree of the Freemasons. The other symbol is of the Knights and Crusaders. Perhaps this tie to the Masons explains why early Watchtower adherents met in Masonic Halls, and offshoot groups continue to do so down to this day - all devotees of Charles Russell.

In his personal life Russell was greatly influenced by a prevailing health treatment. Various psychics professed to give "readings" by examining the bumps of one's head. This is certainly not a Christian practice and, in fact, leaves one open to spiritistic influence. He was already supposed to be dispensing Bible truth when he was, at the same time, obviously concerned with the shape of one's skull. During this time he taught in the Watchtower , March 15, 1913, p.84 that one's desire to worship God was due to the shape of their brain. During his divorce proceedings, he had his skull examined for moral character and humility (PA Superior Court Reports, 1908). In the Watchtower, January 15, 1912 he stated that he also felt that if a dog's head was shaped like a man's, the dog would think as a man. Phrenology is not Christianity, yet he attempted to fuse the two beliefs.

If one examines Russell's theology in his series of books called Studies in the Scriptures, he will notice a blatantly occult symbol adorning the covers. The winged solar disk is a symbol of ancient Egypt representing the sun god. Throughout the centuries it came to represent various other pagan deities. It was, in fact, the symbol for the Baal gods during Jezebel's time. Russell attempted to fuse paganism and Christianity and pass it off as untainted Christianity.
