Wasn't its founder Taze Russell a 33rd Degree Freemason? I believe Joseph Smith(Mormonism) was too.
Yeah, these "cults" have alot of deep connections to secret societies et al. Jesus warned about Mystery Babylon for good reason in Revelation.

Thanks for a well thought-out reply to many of the arguements proposed by JW's. I studied with them in the 1970's and could see that not all of what they were teaching was in line with the Bible. It wasn't until recently that I came across both pages of artwork by Justus Lipsius. Before that I had just thought that they had found one out of many pieces of artwork that depicted a the stake as opposed to a cross. it's amazing to think that they deceive their followers by not showing all the evidence.

Phil 3:18-19 KJV For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction...
(to prove your point)...
but you left out other parts of that scripture that further explains the context, which is verse-19. if your so holier than thou..WHY would you leave out the rest of that scripture. I know why..
here are some bible version examples of the full scripture you left out: and i follow the JW faith in god(Jehovah AND his son Jesus)
NEW WORLD TRANSLATION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURESPhilippians 3:18-1918For there are many, I used to mention them often but now I mention them also with weeping, who are walking as the enemies of the torture stake of the Christ,19and their finish is destruction, and their god is their belly, and their glory consists in their shame, and they have their minds upon things on the earth.
New King James Version (NKJV)
18 For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things.
Kehillah in Philippi 3:18-19....(maybe this is cultist to)
Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)
18 For many, of whom I was often telling you, and now also I say with weeping, walk as oyvim (enemies) of Moshiach’s Etz [DEVARIM 21:23; 27:26; Ga 3:13; 1C 1:23; Ga 6:12 cf Pp 2:8].
19 Their destined end [TEHILLIM 73:17] is churban (destruction, Gehinnom). Their g-d is their appetite [Ro 16:18], and their kavod, what they glory in, is their bushah (shame). Their machshavot are set on the Olam Hazeh [Ro 8:5-6].
Here's another description of tree or stake being mentioned.
Kehillah in Galatia 3:13
Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)
13 Moshiach redeemed us from the kelalah (curse) of the Torah, having become a kelalah (curse) on behalf of us, because it has been written, KILELAT HASHEM is on NIVLATO TALUI AL HAETZ ("Curse of G-d is on the NEVELAH (body, corpse) being hanged on the tree" DEVARIM 21:23),
NEW WORLD TRANSLATION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURESGalatians 3:13
13Christ by purchase released us from the curse of the Law by becoming a curse instead of us, because it is written: “Accursed is every man hanged upon a stake.”
but i digress, as i continue to learn. also i see nothing on your site exposing saturnalia....
"Jesus Saves" i seen written on a tea shirt on one of the pics...but God(Jehovah) creates.
good day to you.
