In 1816, William Miller, a Baptist preacher, began to say that Jesus Christ would return to earth in 1843. More than 50,000 people trusted Miller's calculations and prepared to welcome the Lord. 1843 & 1844 came, and nothing. Some of Miller’s disappointed followers worked to keep the idea alive and launched the start of modern Adventism, including the Advent Christian Church, the Life and Advent Union, the Seventh-Day Adventists, and more.
Charles Russell was born on February 16, 1852, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 16 years old and Russell was losing faith. A chance encounter brought him to an Adventist preacher, Jonas Wendell. Russell continued to study the Scriptures with Jonas and other Adventists. He also met on a regular basis with a small circle of friends to discuss the Bible, and this informal study group came to regard him as their leader or pastor. At age 23, Russell received a copy of The Herald of the Morning, an Adventist magazine published by Nelson H. Barbour. Barbour's group believed that Christ had returned invisibly in 1874, and this concept got Russell's attention.
In the summer of 1876, Charles met with Nelson to talk about beliefs and about money. Charles Russell became the magazine's financial backer, and he contributed articles for publication. Both these men were teaching that Christ's invisible return in 1874 would be followed in 1878 by the Rapture (a huge snatching away of believers to heaven). 1878 seemed kinda ordinary
Charles quit the staff of the Adventist magazine and started his own cover: Zion's Watch Tower and Herald of Christ's Presence was first published in July, 1879.
Charles Russel soon organized 30+ study groups from Ohio to the New England coast. He died on October 31, 1916, two years after he said the world was supposed to have ended.
Joseph Rutherford then took over for Charles. Like Russell, "Judge" Rutherford tried his hand at predicting dates for things, like that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob would be resurrected in 1925 to rule as princes over the earth. Those guys failed to show on time for Rutherford, and he gave up the dating game.
Nathan Knorr inherited the presidency of The Watch Tower after Rutherford's death in 1942. Knorr shifted the focus from dynamic leadership to dynamic membership. He initiated training programs to make members into effective recruiters, going from door to door.

A. Zion churches.
B. Jehovah's Witnesses.
C. Branch Davidians.

He's a double-header
a man with 2 minds.|
This didn't happen by human cloning, or fancy surgery,
or even from a case of almost twins.
How did this happen??
A double-minded person will be trying to please and serve God while holding on to their own life. If we have 2 heads, our feelings go up and down with what we want and depending upon who we're with or what we see. It happened when Esau was hungry in Genesis 25, when Lot's wife wouldn't leave home without it in Genesis 19, when Moses thought he had the water rock thing figured out in Numbers 20, when Balaam gave a little cooperation to the natives in Numbers 22, when David was just looking around and found trouble in II Samuel 11, when Peter wasn't sure if he really knew Jesus in Matthew 14 & 16, and when Ananias took the big lie in Acts 5.
It happens a lot today whenever someone tries to add Jesus to their life like we would add-on a DVD player to the TV/stereo system
or like attaching a third hand to somebody. But, Jesus wants our head to be for His head, not as a second head. Making choices to follow what we think, what we feel and desire over what God is prompting us to do will make you or me double-minded or twice-souled, because two lives are then being lived in torn contrast.
Satan knows that having a double-head will give you self-life over God's Life
a big double-headache. When all our words and our deeds don't match, there's confusion and discouragement and we can only pretend God is hearing us and giving us what we want. [James 1:5-8; 4:8]
But what do we really want?
Lose that other mind of self, and have our whole body be full of light. [Luke 11:33-36; Colossians 3:2-3] For you were purchased -- bought with a price paid, therefore celebrate -- honor -- glorify God in your body. [I Corinthians 6:20; 7:23] Be transformed by the nenewal of your mind, [Romans 12:1-2] Locking-down every thought to the obedience of Christ. [II Corinthians 10:5]
