How Much Lower Can the Watchtower Stoop Against Christ? 

In Video 47 I spoke to my personal opinion that I find the language of the New World Translation to be strange, and that I do not like reading it. I stressed it was just my opinion. I did, as an example, a comparison between the 23rd Psalm in that translation versus the King James version.

 

When I did Video 136 I observed that what is written in the New World Translation, in numerous instances, was actually different from what is written in the Reference Bible. All along, I thought the Reference Bible was just the New World Translation with many more footnotes and references. The question is, just how many translations of the Scriptures do they have, and why is their translation constantly being updated?

 

Is the English Language changing so rapidly? That’s a good question, because I was to learn that their English is outpacing the English spoken by the rest of us, English-speaking mortals.

 

This clip from the Documentary, Witnesses of Jehovah, is worth considering again.

 

CLIP
Dr. Mante’s view of the New World Translation

 

All in an effort to deny the Deity of Christ. Here are just a few examples, beginning with the most famous, John 1:1:

               

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:1 - KJV

 

The Watchtower inserts the word “a” and changed the capital G to lowercase.

 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god.
John 1:1 - NWT

 

John 1:3

 

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
John 1:3 - KJV

 

The word, “made” is too big a word for Jehovah’s Witnesses to understand, so the Watchtower simplified it to “came into existence” and, of course, it cannot allow Jehovah’s Witnesses to think for a minute that the world was created by Jesus, so the word “by” had to be changed to “through”.

 

All things came into existence through him, and apart from him not even one thing came into existence. What has come into existence.

John 1:3 - NWT

 

Colossians 1:16

 

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Colossians 1:16 - KJV

 

because by means of him 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.
Colossians 1:16 - NWT

 

If you thought the word, “made” was hard for Jehovah’s Witnesses to understand, try the word “by”. By itself, that word, “by” cannot be understand by Jehovah’s Witnesses, apparently. So to make it clearer - crystal clear -  the Watchtower adds the phrase “means of”.  Sure, “by means of” is much clearer than “by”.  And don’t forget, they teach that Jesus is a created being, so to be sure Jehovah’s Witnesses never lose sight of that Watchtower dogma, they added the word “other” to the Holy Scriptures.

 

In the past, it was honest enough to put the ‘other’ in brackets. Today the brackets are gone, as the great deceiver continues to deceive, stepping up a gear. Mark my word, their day is coming.

 

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

Revelation 22:18 - KJV

 

I can go on to scores of passages, as Dr. Mante said, where the Watchtower altered verses of Scripture for the specific purpose of denying that Jesus is God. A few more were mentioned in Video 25B. But this one I just discovered, takes the cake. 1 Corinthians 10:4:

 

And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
1 Corinthians 10:4 - KJV

 

The Watchtower replace the word “was”, with “meant”.

 

and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they used to drink from the spiritual rock that followed them, and that rock meant the Christ.
1 Corinthians 10:4 - NWT

 

Note: Please pay attention. That SPIRITUAL Rock WAS Christ. The PHYSICAL rock MEANT (or represented) Christ. Paul was discussing the SPRITUAL Rock.

 

But the rendering in the Reference Bible is where I want to close by zooming your attention:  Please read and listen to this:

 

and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they used to drink from the spiritual rock-mass that followed them, and that rock-mass meant the Christ.

1 Corinthians 10:4 – Watchtower Reference Bible

 

When I read that, I thought, “What on earth is a rock-mass”? I went to Dictionary.com. It asked me, “Did you mean rockiness?” No. I did not mean rockiness. So I went to the Oxford Dictionary. It volunteered the meaning of mass rock. No. That’s not what I wanted. The Watchtower is mesmerizing the English  dictionaries. Maybe the Webster Dictionary could help after all. Well, that one settled the matter for me. It went straight to the point. “Rock-mass not found in the dictionary”.

 

Dear Jehovah’s Witnesses: You may be wondering, “Why is Winston making such a big deal about this? Why is he so much against the organization?” That is not the question to ponder. Ask yourself, why is it so all-important to the Watchtower that the word, “rock” all by itself is not seen by you at 1 Corinthians 10:4? I give you 2 Samuel 22:32

 

For who is a God besides Jehovah? And who is a rock beside our God?
2 Samuel 22:32 – Watchtower Reference Bible

 

The real question is why is the organization so much against Jesus being God?

 

                DR. MANTE CLIP – Alterations against Deity of Christ

 

That, ladies and gentlemen, is the extent to which the Watchtower will go to deny the Deity of Christ. Yes, it will even invent words to put in their Bible – words that do not appear in the English language, and dare to call it a translation. Not to mention, the most accurate English Translation. What will they think of next; the New World Translation of the English Dictionary?

 

That is part of the reason a bunch of Jehovah’s Witnesses will come on to this channel to accuse me of lying, when I say that Jesus is God, even telling me that Jesus is not the Father, as if anyone told them that Jesus is the Father. They stridently argue that Jesus is the Son of God, as if anyone ever denied that fact.

 

Dear Jehovah’s Witnesses, the day you open your eyes to how this organization is twisting, adding to, and changing the Scriptures; the day your eyes are open to how you are being lied to, to this very day, is the day you will come to learn who Jesus is.

 

In the next video, I shall be making an announcement regarding the website, after which, I will try one more time, out of my love for you, to show you how the organization you trust is lying to you in a most disdainful way. And it hurts me. Yes, in the most disrespectful of ways, you are being treated like a fool by the organization you completely trust, and all because that complete trust you have in these men, is allowing it.

 

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
2 Corinthians 13:14 - NIV
