Click here for this amazing historical book from 1930 – Desolations of the Sanctuary 1929
This book chronicles the doctrinal and prophetic changes Rutherford made and explains how these changes were all for the purpose of transferring influence from Russell to Rutherford and for consolidating dictatorial power around the new movement, later to be name the Jehovah’s Witnesses. The book was written by early Watchtower brothren – EMIL and OTTO SADLACK – of Angerburg (East Prussia) Germany
PART TWO – ORGANIZATION
“It did not take long till the idea (at first cautiously advanced) that the Society alone could teach, expound, etc., took firmer shape. Soon (by the end of 1922) the Society, under the leadership of its president, gave out peremptorily the axiom that independent private “interpretation” (which Brother Russell scripturally gave out as our principal task) was of Satan!! New light can only proceed from the “proper source, ” through “lawfully” appointed servants of the Lord, i.e., through the society, of course. The president wrote in the official organ: “Let no one flatter himself into believing that the Lord has specially authorized him to provide food for the household of faith by interpreting the Scriptures; for the Scriptures are not of private interpretation. The Lord reveals his Word through his appointed means.“”
The book has German Watchtower references. We are looking for volunteers to find and replace these with the actual American Watchtower references. (i.e. Watchtower year, month and page #.)
