This conflict is known to Witnesses as the battle of Armageddon, and just about everything the Witnesses teach centers around this doctrine.

They don’t have churches; they have "Kingdom Halls" instead.

Their congregations are uniformly small, usually numbering less than two hundred.

Most Witnesses used to be Catholics or Protestants.

Let’s look a little at their history, because that will help us understand their unique doctrines.

He never was a real judge, but took the title because, as an attorney, he substituted at least once for an absent judge.

At one time he claimed Russell was next to Paul as an expounder of the gospel, but later, in an effort to have his writings supplant Russell’s, he let Russell’s books go out of print. As an organizer, he equipped missionaries with portable phonographs, which they took door to door along with records of Rutherford.

Rutherford was succeeded by Nathan Homer Knorr, who was born in 1905 and died in 1977.

Knorr joined the movement as a teenager, working his way up through the ranks.

Russell taught his followers the non-existence of hell and the annihilation of unsaved people (a doctrine he picked up from the Adventists), the non-existence of the Trinity (he said only the Father, Jehovah, is God), the identification of Jesus with Michael the Archangel, the reduction of the Holy Spirit from a person to a force, the mortality (not immortality) of the soul, and the return of Jesus in 1914.

When 1914 had come and gone, with no Jesus in sight, Russell modified his teachings and claimed Jesus had, in fact, returned to Earth, but that his return was invisible.

He moved into this mansion (where he died in 1942) and bought an automobile with which to drive the resurrected patriarchs around.
