Jehovah’s group to get new home in Blackburn

First published in News This Is Lancashire: Photograph of the Author by , Assistant picture editor

AROUND 200 volunteers will be helping to build the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ New Kingdom Hall in Blackburn.

The single storey building will be erected in Whalley New Road and will create a hub for the two congregations, who have to travel out of town for meetings.

The pre-fabricated building, which cost £500,000, has been funded by the sale of the old place of worship on St Peter’s Street in Blackburn and donations from the congregations over the past decade.

The drainage work for the building has begun and the foundations are due to be laid in the next fortnight.

The building is expected to be complete by late July.

Bill Boule, assistant design coordinator, said: “Skilled builders from ministries in the area will be helped by volunteers, mainly at weekends.

“There will be nearly 200 people on site during the busiest weekend. All the different tradesmen will be working together.

“The timber frame and the roof will go up in around two days. There will be people laying bricks on the outside while people are putting up plasterboard walls inside.”

The new hall will reunite the two Blackburn congregations – Breakwater and Roe Lee – which each have around 80 members.

It will include a main worship hall, two smaller teaching rooms, toilets and a kitchen area.

Bill said: “It will be brilliant. It will be the first time in about 10 years that the two groups have been under the same roof.”

The new hall will be built on the site of the former Cemetery Hotel.

The founder of Jehovah's Witnesses Charles T. Russell was way into the pagan and spooky pyramidology.
This was part of his apocalyptic algorithm to arrive at the date of October 6 1914 for Jesus *invisible* second coming.
He is buried under a huge freaky Masonic pyramid.

A conservative estimate of the deaths of Jehovahs Witnesses since the blood transfusion ban went into effect 1945 is 50,000 dead,men,women,CHILD
REN.May be as high as 150,000.
Lower figure is 50 times more than died at Jones Town kool-aid mass murder.

Russell was on a quest for truth.

This was blessed. In 1914 he and the bible students hit the year, season (autumn, due to calculating from the autumn of 607 BCE) and the event. (the invisible first horseman, Jesus Arrival, ... and the second horseman, WAR.

Things are unfolding more slowly than thought, but exactly as thought. The 1914 prophecy will commence before earth succumbs to man.

Charles Taze Russell did not believe in an organization such as the Jehovah's Witnesses. Russell's view of Armageddon was that it is to chastise the people of the nations, nor to eternally destroy them as the JWs teach. Russell was not the founder of an organization that he preached against, nor was Russell was ever a member of the Jehovah's Witnesses organization. Joseph Rutherford formed the JW organization after Russell died. By 1928, the greater majority of the Bible Students (more than 75%) had rejected Rutherford's new religious organization.

Although pagans may misuse God's creations, there is nothing pagan or spooky about Russell's Biblical study of God's Witness in Egypt.

Charles Taze Russell believed that Jesus had returned in 1874; he was not expecting Christ to return in 1914.

Charles Taze Russell is not buried under a huge Masonic pyramid. Rutherford's pyramid monument was built several years after Russell died. No one is buried in or under that monument, nor is that monument a "Masonic pyramid." There is nothing in Russell's writings or his will about building such a monument.

Much of what one may find through Google about Charles Taze Russell is a lot of false information presented as though fact, but actually based on imagination, misrepresentations and assumptions.

Charles Taze Russell never said anything about forbidding blood transfusions.

Although these comments are very clear, it appears to be saying that the Bible Students were expecting Christ's arrival in 1914? If by "arrival" one means the beginning of Christ's parousia, I don't know of any of the Bible Students who were expecting Christ's parousia to begin in 1914. One of the things that Russell was expecting was warfare either in 1914 or soon thereafter; he was expecting God's kingdom to be established in Jerusalem and that it would soon spread out all over the world. Yes, much (not all) of what he was expecting is gradually taking place, and is taking a lot longer than he expected.

However, the JW leadership has rejected most of what Russell taught about 1914, retaining only the "seven times" prophecy of Daniel 4, although their explanations of what happened in 1914 are different from what Russell taught.

In 1938, Rutherford introduced the idea that all outside of his organization would be eternally destroyed in Armageddon, almost the opposite of what Russell taught about Armageddon.

Russell, however, never spoke for an organization such as the Jehovah's Witnesses; his conclusions were his own, and he did not assume authority over his fellow servants so as to try to force everyone to accept his conclusions, as did Joseph Rutherford.

If his presence were to be visible why did his disciples ask him for a sign? How many “children” have died in the nationalistic wars of this century? A lot more than 50,000.

What planet are you on? Everyone has a problem with the death of children in "nationalistic wars". To compare that to refusing a simple treatment which can save lives just shows how truly deluded you are.
I have a loving God who wants peace and believes that we should all do EVERYTHING we can to help other, including using the skills he has provided us with and the intelligence he gave us to make life better through learning about what we have around us and increasing our knowledge and expertise.

Hands up everyone who has a problem with children dying in wars? I'm guessing that around 90% of the world's population put their hands up. Now, go on, do something about it. Not that simple? You do surprise me.....
