I've had a copy of the certificate for years.I also have medical training at the nursing level. What the certificate tells me is that Rutherford died the sort of horribly painful and humiliating death I wouldn't wish on anybody. Basically his rectal cancer spread to his pelvis, where it would've gotten into his prostate, probably shutting off his ability to urinate since the cause of death is listed as uremia. So the last months of his life would've been miserable beyond comprehension on many levels.Dupin
Well balaji, there is some suspicion as to how Pastor Russell died. No one has ever seen a death certificate, it just doesn't exist. Experts in the field of searching for documents have not been able to find one. Add to the fact that Russell himself was embalmed twice, his body was buried twice as deep as a normal buriel AND cement was poured in before the dirt. Rutherfoird claimed it was to protect the body from those who would defile it. Personally, I think it was defiled before it was buried, probably defiled before he was even dead ... if you understand. Interestingly it was documented (somewhere) that Rutherford was so paranoid that he had a food taster.RR
are the 1919 convention reports available?
