Charles Taze Russell, also known as Pastor Russell, was an American religious leader, author and lecturer. He was the founder of the Christian denomination of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, a group that emerged from the Bible Student movement in the United States. According to Mr. Russell’s research of the Holy Bible, God’s Kingdom will rule the Earth through Christ. Today, we will read a selection from Volume One of Charles Taze Russell’s “Studies in the Scriptures” entitled, “The Divine Plan of the Ages – The Existence of A Supreme Intelligent Creator Established.”

“Yet it is evident that without a direct revelation of the plans and purposes of God, men could only approximate the Truth, and arrive at indefinite conclusions. But let us for the moment lay aside the Bible, and look at things from the standpoint of reason alone. He who can look into the sky with a telescope, or even with his natural eye alone, and see there the immensity of creation, its symmetry, beauty, order, harmony and diversity, and yet doubt that the Creator of these is vastly his superior both in wisdom and power, or who can suppose for a moment that such order came by chance, without a Creator, has so far lost or ignored the faculty of reason as to be properly considered what the Bible terms him, a fool (one who ignores or lacks reason): ‘The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.’ (Psalm 14:1).”

“Some who deny the existence of an intelligent Creator claim that nature is the only God, and that from nature all forms of animal and vegetable developments proceeded without the ordering of intelligence, but governed, they say, by ‘the law of the survival of the fittest’ in a process of evolution. This theory lacks proof, for all about us we see that the various creatures are of fixed natures that do not evolve to higher natures; and though those who hold to this theory have made repeated endeavors, they have never succeeded either in blending different species or in producing a new fixed variety.”

“These evolutions, under divinely established laws, in which changes of food and climate played an important part, may have continued until the fixed species, as at present seen, were established, beyond which change is impossible, the ultimate purpose of the Creator in this respect, to all appearance, having been reached.”
