Biblestudents & T.C.Russell

The terms "Bible Students' movement," or "Bible Student Movement," covers many shades of "Bible Students." There are many of the "Bible Students" associated with the movement who rarely, if ever, refer or study the works of Russell at all, while on the other extreme there are some who believe that no one should study the Bible at all without the works of Russell, and even some who claim to "fully" believe all that Russell taught. There are those "Bible Students" who believe that Russell was appointed as the faithful and wise servant, and there are those "Bible Students" who do not believe such. Russell advocated the usage of the expression "Associated Bible Students" as recognizing Bible Students associated with each other, but yet he viewed this phrase to be a descriptive, non-sectarian, non-denominational designation.
