Who was their founder ?• The modern-day organization of Jehovah‟s Witnesses began at the end of the 19th century. At that time, a small group of Bible students who lived near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the United States, began a systematic analysis of the Bible.• Among that group of sincere Bible students was a man named Charles Taze Russell. While Russell took the lead in the Bible education work at that time and was the first editor of The Watchtower, he was not the founder of a new religion.• Since Jesus is the Founder of Christianity, they view him as the founder of their organization.
Do You Feel That You Are theOnly People Who Will Be Saved?• No. Many millions who lived in centuries past and who weren‟t Jehovah‟s Witnesses will have an opportunity for salvation. The Bible explains that in God‟s promised new world, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Acts 24:15) Additionally, many now living may yet begin to serve God, and they too will gain salvation. In any case, it‟s not our job to judge who will or won‟t be saved. That assignment rests squarely in Jesus‟ hands.— John 5:22, 27.
