The Bible Students
The largest schism in Watchtower history involved the Bible Students in the 1920s and 30s. It was not so much that Bible Students "opposed" the work of the Society, the issue was the Bible Students and the Society were no longer in harmony doctrinally. The 3,000 or so who "dropped out" by 1918, eventually grew in the coming years. By 1930, 75% of the original Bible Students had abandoned the Society. The Bible Students, or "THE EVIL SLAVE" as the Jehovah's Witnesses refer to them as, are now coming back to haunt the Organization.
