When I was talking/arguing with the Jehovah Witnesses, I told them that Charles Russell was a freemason and therefore part of the Illuminati. That seemed to shake them up a bit.
In 1913 at the Masonic hall in San Francisco, Charles Russell said: “Now, I am a free and accepted mason. I trust we all are. But not just after the style of our masonic brethren.”His tomb says it all. It is built in the pyramid shape and has the masonic symbol on it. It is very interesting that the masons have appropriated the Catholic saying that Jesus gave to Constantine when He appeared to him and allowed him to conquer all of the Roman Empire in the honor of the Cross. “IN HOC SIGNO VINCES”
This motto was used to win the Battle of Lepanto against the ottoman muslims. This motto also was part of the motivation that the Cristeros had when they shouted out: “Que Vive Cristo Rey”. And yet the masons use it as one of their symbols too.
These two Jehovah Witness ladies also denied that the Jehovah Witnesses predicted the end of the world several times when I told them this. Jesus says that no one knows except the Father. I personally knew Jehovah Witnesses who told me the world was going to end in 1975. This scares a lot of people into joining them and then they stay in. We should live each day, knowing it could be the day Jesus will return. We, traditional Catholics, are ready. We have held on to the Catholic faith and are joyfully awaiting the coming of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. We are so blessed to have Jesus to follow and not Charles Russell. The Our Father says it all: “Thy Kingdom Come”.
