This is Fritz Springmeier's explosive and rare book The Watchtower & The Masons - A Preliminary Investigation (1990) which is probably the best book exposing the cult of Jehovah's Witnesses as a masonic/zionist front with sinister motives not only for its members but also for its surroundings. When most people think of the Jehovah Witness Watchtower they think of well groomed men and women going door to door with harmless religious pamphlets and a (rewritten) bible. What lies behind this facade is a nightmare that destroys families and lives. Founded by the freemason Charles T. Russell in 1879 by starting his own magazine, the Jehovah Witness Watchtower is today a big money (billion a year) mind control operation that steals the hearts, minds and ultimately the lives of itís followers. The cult uses mind control tools to keep members in line such as: milieu control, loaded language, demand for purity, confession, mystical manipulation, doctrine over person, sacred science, dispensing of existence, control of environment, closed logic, and most of all fear. The cult has predicted the end of the world numerous times which has lead many to take their own lives. By the time one is trapped in the cult they know no one besides other cult members which can also lead to suicide. Because the cult is obsessed with death and destruction long term exposure can lead to murder as there have been many families slaughtered by a long time cult member. While the cult kills directly through its bogus blood ban, murder, and suicide; the cult also steals lives. Cult members are discouraged from bettering themselves or higher education and must attend many meetings per week. They are only able to focus their lives on selling books and magazines and recruiting new members. Members arenít allowed to read anything critical of the cult so they donít think for themselves. The cult uses mind control techniques to create a nowhere to run, nowhere to hide atmosphere for the members. They must literally spy on other cult members to ensure that they have not violated cult rules. Records of cult members ďsinsĒ are kept by headquarters and never destroyed. The cult breaks up families and manipulates the courts in their favor. Cult members are taught how to lie in court (theocratic warfare) so paternity cases are decided in the favor of cult members. Find out the dark side of this "endtime prophecy for profit" cult in this well researched and fascinating book which will surely be of interest not only to religious oriented people but for the general reader as well. 245 pages, many pictures. A must read for everyone.
From the backcover:
This book's fresh stimulating insights make the book a must for the Christian, the researcher, the historian, and anyone interested in the Watchtower Movement. What were the original sources of the Watchtower Movement? What were the sources of the many strange and seemingly unique doctrines of Charles Taze Russell, the founder of the Watchtower movement? Researchers in the past have chosen to rely primarly on historical sources provided by Russell himself in an attempt to answer that question. Fritz Springmeier has taken a different path in this new book. Rather than attempting to rehash old, worn out material, Mr. Springmeier, with bulldog like tenacity, has uncovered astonishing new evidence that links C.T. Russell with Freemasonry and the Occult! This book will raise many new questions on Russell's doctrines.
