The watchtower the Jehovah's Witness organization
would claim that their New World Translation is
the best Bible version out there.
And it's the most complete and accurate version
of the Bible you can get.
Is that really true?
Well the Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Jesus
is a creed being that he's Michael the archangel
and not the Almighty God Creator.
Now if you've read the Bible.
Alarm bells should be going off.
Of course to read, for example in John 1:3 "that
all things were made through Jesus and without
Jesus was not anything made that was made."
Also Colossians 1:16-17, we read, "that for by
Jesus, all things are created whether in heaven
or on earth."
So why did the Jehovah's Witnesses believe this?
Well part of the reason is that the New World
translation has been corrupted by the Watchtower.
Just take a look at their 2013 version.
We look at Colossians 1:16-17.
We see that it reads, "because by means of Him
(Jesus) All other things
were created in the heavens and on the earth the
things visible and the things
invisible whether they are thrones or lordships
or governments or authorities
all other things have been created through Him
and for him also he is before all other things
and by means of him all other things are made to
Obviously this is concerning because the word
"other" used to be in brackets, in their previous
version of 1984.
Brackets indicated that the word "other" is not
in the original Greek language, of course, which
is what we translate the Bible from into the.
English. The 1984 version has the "other" in
brackets indicating that they're not supposed to
be there, but added by the translators.
Now let's look to the Greek. The Greek states
that Jesus created all things.
The word "other" is nowhere to be found before
after the word "all" in verses 16 through 17.
This is an obvious insertion by the Watchtower.
In fact, on the JW.org Web site they have three
other Bibles this besides New World translation
including the King James, ASV, and the Bible in
English. All of these versions state, "that for
by Jesus all things are created" not "all other
These versions which obviously must be credible
since the Jehovah's Witness organization has it
on their website, do not add the word "other" in.
It's important we use a translation of the Bible
respected by seminaries, Bible colleges,
universities, and and one in which we know who
the translators are which is of course the
Watchtower were not reveal who translated the New
We'd recommend using the ESV, NASB, New King
James, King James, or NIV Bible.
If you're part of a Jehovah's Witness
organization I invite you to investigate these
claims for yourself.
We know that the Watchtower teaches that Jesus is
a created being.
But the Bible teaches that Jesus Christ is the
Creator of All Things.
The Almighty God.
So the Watchtower had to insert the word "other"
in their 2013 version of the new translation, in
order to not contradict themselves.
Because of course Jesus can't be the creator of
all things and create himself?
So I invite you to investigate these claims
because the Watchtower does not have your best
interest in mind or love you like God does.
But we can know God through Jesus Christ because
God has come down to us the Almighty God through
Jesus Christ to save us.
So please investigate these claims so you can
receive true Biblical salvation.
Also make sure to pick up a copy of "Cult Shock"
the book Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons don't
want you to read.
This will help you evangelize to Jehovah's
Witnesses and Mormons so they can know who the
true God is and receive salvation.
