**The Jehovah's Witnesses' doctrinal system is based upon the interpretation of Charles Taze Russell.
This post will tell you a little about the Jehovah's Witnesses founder. Charles Russell was born to God-fearing parents in 1852. He was also said to have a haunting fear of Hell. In his attempt to quench his fear he succumbed to the teachings of an infidel. William Miller was an apostate from Christianity. It wasn't long that Russell himself began preaching that there was no literal Hell. He made popular his teachings and founded the International Bible Students Association.
Later in 1884 Zion's Watchtower Tract Society became a publishing subsidiary of this association and began publishing Russell's work. In 1886 Russell had published The Divine Plan of the Ages, claiming that in 1914 Armageddon and the dawn of Christ's thousand year rule on earth would begin. He was taught the times started in 1799 and that Christ had returned to the earth in 1874. These dates were later changed when Armageddon failed to commence. Since Russell's death in 1916 Armageddon has been predicted to begin in 1918, 1925 and 1975. of course all these years came and went uneventfully.
