Conflicts, Inconsistencies, and Changes,
in the Jehovah Witness
"We have made our own Bible translation,
the New World Translation (NWT), the most correctly translated Bible ever. The
translators names are kept secret, so as the honor of this translation goes to
Jehovah - not to
So says the file "What do Jehovah's
Witnesses Believe" as taken from their website at http://220.127.116.11. This
website address has not answered for several months, and no one that I know of
seems to know why.
Okay, since Jehovah is given all of the credit for
writing this translation, and if Jehovah is GOD, then this truly must be a
perfect translation, as GOD is perfect, and cannot dispense error. Dispensing
error is satan's job, right? I then must ask, why there are so many Conflicts, Inconsistencies, and
Changes in the NWT? In this file I will list only a
John 1:1, "...and the Word was 'a' god." 'A' god means multiple god's, does it not? Did you notice
the small 'g' for god as
used in this verse? JW's openly admit that Jesus Christ is a lesser god than
Jesus Christ is considered the 'mighty god', whereas Jehovah is the
Isaiah 44:6, "I am the first and the last, and besides Me there is no GOD."
Well, GOD himself
said he is the only god. He also said the same thing in Deut 32:39, Isa 43:3,
Isa 43:10-11, Isa 44:6, Isa 45:5,21. How can Jesus Christ be 'a god', if GOD
said he is the only God? And how many times does GOD have to repeat Himself
before we humans get the message?
The Watchtower Society (WTS) teaching
that Jesus Christ is 'a god', is an open admission that Jehovah is not the only
god. That alone is a violation of the first commandment,
"I am the Lord,
your GOD. YOU SHALL NOT
HAVE OTHER GODS BESIDES ME."
By adding that little letter 'a' to
John 1:1, the WTS has changed the meaning of the entire Bible. That little
letter is a predicate nominative, and it is not in the Greek text. It was
deliberately inserted by the WTS to downgrade Jesus Christ to fit their false
teaching. If we look at the context of John 1:1-18, we will find that the letter
'a' was not added in John 1:6, nor was it added in John 1:18. Why is this WTS? I
suppose by adding the letter in John 1:18, "No man has seen 'a' God at any
time;" just would not sound right now would it? Also we run into the problem of
a capital 'G' for God in that verse. Inconsistencies abound in the
On page 1640 of the NWT, it says "we RENDERED the Tetragrammaton (YHWH or Lord) 6828 times to
read 'Jehovah'". So the NWT now reads 'Jehovah' instead of 'Lord' as in other
The word 'rendered' as used by the Watchtower Society in the above reference, is
their subtle way of admitting that they changed the wording in the Old Testament
without having to use the word 'changed' which is really what they did. After all, 'changed' is a direct violation of all
those verses which admonish anyone not to change the Bible, such as, Deut
4:2,13:1, Prov 30:5-6, Gal 1:8-9, 2Pet 3:15-16, and of course Rev
Are you CURIOUS about 'KURIOS'?
It is not to their credit when they selectively did some
of the same name changes in the New Testament, but only when it became necessary
to suit 'their' teaching. They changed the name when support was needed to show
that Jesus Christ is not GOD, and did not change it in other verses for the same
reason. They will openly admit that the word 'Lord' as used in the New Testament is a
reference to Jesus Christ and not to Jehovah. An example is, "...there was born
to you a Savior, who is Christ the 'Lord'..." Luke 2:11
Now, if you taught that Jesus Christ is 'Lord',
but not GOD, then I suppose you would be forced to go to the Old Testament and
remove all reference to 'Lord' and replace it with another word, such as a made
up one like 'Jehovah' for example. After
all, with the 'Lord' in both testaments, it would be impossible to separate them
as two persons, one who is GOD, and one who is 'a' god, as the Watchtower
Society has attempted to do.
Here are some examples of what I mean, which
amplify the inconsistencies of the NWT...
Are you curious about 'KURIOS'? If not, then you certainly
should be. The next time Jehovah's Witnesses come to your door, ask them to
explain this debacle.
JW's believe St. Michael is Jesus Christ:
9, Michael, the archangel was fiercely disputing with the devil about the body
of Moses when he said, "May the Lord (KURIOS in
the Greek), rebuke thee."
The NWT reads, "May Jehovah (not in the Greek) rebuke you."
Please show me how you get the word 'Jehovah' from the Greek word,
they had left 'Lord' in
this verse, it would have proven that Michael and the Lord are not one in the
JW's believe that the Son is not GOD, and so when verses quote the
Father and the Son as two persons, they leave the word 'Lord' alone:
Eph 1:2, "...GOD our
Father and the Lord Jesus
The NWT reads, "...God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ." Hmmm, identical
They translated 'KURIOS' to 'Lord' in this verse.
I suppose 'Jehovah Jesus Christ'
would not be in the Watchtower's best interest.
Phil 2:11, "...that Jesus
Christ is 'Lord'..."
They let this one stand, as it would have proved an embarrassment for them
to change that 'Lord', and
in doing so, having to admit that Jesus Christ is Jehovah.
Since you 'RENDERED' the word 'Lord' to 'Jehovah' over 6800 times in the Bible, why
did you not 'RENDER' this
verse as well?
Inconsistencies abound in the NWT.
Luke 4:12, "And
Jesus answered and said to him, "It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the
'Lord' thy GOD."
NWT reads, In answer Jesus said to him: "It is said, 'You must not put
Jehovah your GOD to the
Why did the Watchtower Society 'RENDER' this 'KURIOS' to 'Jehovah'? Because it would have said
Jesus Christ is GOD, that is why. Show me the word 'Jehovah' in the Greek text?
3:17, "Now the 'Lord' is
the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the 'Lord' is, there is freedom."
reads, "Now 'Jehovah' is
the Spirit; and where the spirit of 'Jehovah' is, there is freedom."
This is an interesting verse. In other Bibles, Jesus Christ and the Spirit
are the second and third persons in one GOD. Jehovah Witnesses teach that the
Spirit is a 'force' of
GOD, and not a 'person'.
Here they admit that Jehovah and the Spirit are the same, making the first and
third persons GOD, while still denying the divinity of Christ. This is a major
inconsistency of the NWT.
Again, show me the word 'Jehovah' in the Greek text?
6:18, "...says the Lord Almighty."
As pointed out already, JW's teach that
Jehovah is the 'Almighty'
GOD, and Jesus Christ is only the 'mighty' god. Guess what they did to this verse?
The NWT says in 2Cor
6:18, "...says 'Jehovah'
Again yet, where do they get the translation of 'Kurios' to be Jehovah?
I have a question for you. Since the Greek word,
'KURIOS', which means
'LORD', is the same word
used throughout the New Testament, how can you change it here and there to suit
yourselves, but not be consistent and change it everywhere it is used? You have
tried to separate Jesus Christ from Jehovah, in order to show from your
teaching, that Jesus Christ is not GOD. Since the word 'Lord' is used throughout
the Bible as a name for GOD, you were forced to change the word 'Lord' to
'Jehovah' every time it was used in the Old Testament. That part was easy since
Jesus Christ had not appeared on the scene yet. However when it came to the New
Testament, both GOD and Lord are synonymous since Jesus Christ IS GOD. Now you
are faced with a dilemma. You cannot change every word 'Lord' in the New
Testament to 'Jehovah', as that would show that all of the verses that applied
to Jesus Christ would prove that He and Jehovah are one in the same GOD. So what
did you do? You changed every word 'Lord' which signifies GOD, to 'Jehovah', and
you let stand every word 'Lord' that meant Jesus Christ. Now, I submit that in
all of the New Testament which was written originally in Greek, except for
Matthew which was written in Aramaic, the same Greek word for 'Lord' which is
'KURIOS', is used every
time. 'Lord' is used over 600 times in the New Testament and of this number you
have changed it over 230 times to 'Jehovah'. Please explain to me, from the
original Greek New Testament, how you managed to translate the Greek word for
'Lord', 'KURIOS', to
'Jehovah' over 230 times, and 'KURIOS' to 'Lord' over 370 times?
I have asked JW's to show me
any Greek dictionary or word translation (other than the one they wrote), which
equates the word 'kurios' to 'jehovah'.
They have not responded with a
source, as there are no sources.
I have shown only some of the numerous
inconsistencies in the NWT. Following are many more.
Just who or what is the Holy Spirit?
Just who is the Savior according
to the NWT?
How many gods are there?
Who is the Redeemer?
Redeemers are there?
Note! All verses in this section are quotes from the
JW's teach that the Holy Spirit is not a person but a force, as mentioned
Acts 5:3-4, "Bur Peter said, "Ananias, why has Satan emboldened
you to play false to the holy spirit (notice that satan is
capitalized here but the Holy Spirit is not. That ought to tell you
something.) and to hold back secretly some of the price of the field? As
long as it remained with you did it not remain yours, and after it was sold did
it not continue in your control? Why was it that you purposed such a deed as
this in your heart? You have played false, not to men, BUT
Well... First of all, they elevate
satan with the capital "S" and then they lower the Holy Spirit by showing no
capital letters, and then they go on to call the Holy Spirit GOD. So, did
Ananias lie to the Third Person of the Holy Trinity, or to a force?
13:2, "...the holy spirit said: "Of all persons set Barn'na-bas and Saul apart
for me for the work to which I have called them."
The Holy Spirit said?
Persons speak, not forces. In this verse, the small lettered holy spirit (again)
calls Himself both "me" and "I", words set apart for persons, not forces.
Who is the Savior? How many gods are there?
Isaiah 43:3,and 43:11,
"For I am Jehovah your God, the Holy One of Israel your Savior....and besides Me there is no Savior."
So Jehovah said he is the Savior and there is no
other, and he repeated himself in two verses.
Why did he have to say it
Isaiah 49:26, "And all flesh will have to know
that I, Jehovah, am your 'Savior' and your 'Repurchaser' (Redeemer), the Powerful One of Jacob."
Isaiah 47:4, "There is
'One Repurchasing' us Jehovah of armies is his name..."
Isaiah 48:17, "This is what
Jehovah has said, your 'Repurchaser', the Holy One of Israel..."
Isaiah 49:7, "This is what
Jehovah, the 'Repurchaser' of Israel, his Holy One, has said..."
These verses raise a lot
of questions. First, Jehovah repeats yet again that he is the Savior. Then, he
calls himself the Redeemer. Now, just who is the Repurchaser/Redeemer? He is the one who suffered
and died on the cross for our sins. The Redeemer is Jesus Christ and none
other. So now is Jehovah saying it is he who suffered and died for us? These
verses show that Jehovah and Jesus Christ are one in the same GOD.
59:20, "And to Zion the 'Repurchaser' will certainly
come, and to those turning from transgression in
Jacob," is the utterance of Jehovah.
Oops, here Jehovah plainly states that
the Redeemer will come,
which he certainly did, but in the person of Jesus Christ.
Society, just who is the Redeemer and how many Redeemers are there?
Isaiah 43:10, "Before me there was no God
formed, AND AFTER ME THERE CONTINUED TO BE NONE."
Well, it seems there were not any gods before Jehovah and
there never will be any after.
Isaiah 45:21, "...Is it not I, Jehovah,
besides whom there IS NO OTHER GOD; a righteous God and a Savior, there
being none excepting me."
Hosea 13:4, "But I am
Jehovah your God from the land of Egypt, and there
was no God except me that you used to know; and THERE WAS NO SAVIOR BUT
Here, Jehovah said it again that he alone is
the Savior, and he states in these three verses that he is the 'ONLY' God. Why does anyone, especially
GOD, repeat himself? He does it to drive home a point. In this case,
THERE IS ONLY ONE SAVIOR AND THERE IS ONLY ONE
GOD. Also, I thought previously that in John 1:1, the
Word was 'A' god, meaning
there are multiple gods. It seems there is a contradiction between John 1:1, and
Isaiah 45:10 and 21, and Hosea, but only in the NWT. Contradictions and
inconsistencies abound in the NWT.
Moses had something to say along these
lines. Deut 32:39, "See now that I-I am he And there
are no gods (note the lower case 'g') together with me." It sounds like Moses
and Isaiah are in agreement that there IS ONLY ONE
GOD. But what about John 1:1 and 'a' god?
Isaiah 45:5, "I am Jehovah, and there is no one else. With the exception of me, there is no God."
Jehovah again said there is only ONE God. Jehovah repeats
himself...Again! He has
gotta drive home that point, I suppose.
Isaiah 9:6, "And his name will be
called Wonderful Counselor, 'Mighty GOD' (Jesus Christ is the 'Mighty
GOD', remember?), Eternal Father, Prince of Peace."
Here is a prefigurement of the coming of Jesus Christ, a 'Mighty GOD'. I thought Jehovah said he
was the 'ONLY' god
Watchtower Society, just how many gods are there? And while you
are at it, how many saviors?
1John 4:14, "...the Father has sent
forth his Son as Savior of
Hmmm, I thought in Isaiah, in a previous example, that Jehovah
alone was the Savior, but here he is sending his Son as the Savior." There is
inconsistency on top of inconsistency in the NWT.
Luke 2:11, "...there
was born to you today a Savior, who is Christ the
This verse says Jesus Christ is the Savior, not Jehovah. But I
thought Jehovah had said he was the 'ONLY' Savior
many times above.
Tit 1:3, "...under command of our Savior, GOD."
Jehovah is GOD (capital 'G'), right? This verse says Jehovah is the
Tit 1:4, "...peace from GOD [the] Father and Christ Jesus our
This says Jesus Christ is the Savior, not Jehovah. Answers
Tit 2:10, "...the teaching of our Savior GOD, in all
This contradicts Tit 1:4, by saying Jehovah is the
Tit 2:13, "...of the great GOD and of [the] Savior of us,
Now we are back to Jesus Christ as the Savior.
"the part of our Savior, GOD..."
Back to Jehovah as Savior.
"...through Jesus Christ our Savior..."
Back to Jesus Christ as
Phil 3:20, "...also we are eagerly awaiting for a Savior, the
Lord Jesus Christ."
Still Jesus Christ as the Savior.
I feel like a
bouncing ball in reading these verses. I am getting confused. I guess St. Paul
must have been confused also when he wrote his Epistle to Titus (but only for
the NWT translation). It would appear that he could not decide between Jehovah
and Jesus Christ either, as to exactly which one was the Savior. According to
the NWT, three of these verses from Titus say Jehovah is the Savior and three
say Jesus Christ is. Isaiah 43:11, does say right from the mouth of Jehovah,
"...and besides me there is no Savior", yet, I have shown many verses here that the NWT says Jesus
Christ is the Savior. I would say for sure that these verses say Jehovah
and Jesus Christ are one in the same GOD. You will remember also that in John
1:1, the NWT demoted Jesus Christ to 'a' god (small 'g' for GOD), yet in all the
verses above that refer to the Savior GOD, there is a capital 'G'.
think we had better summarize what we have found, according to what the NWT says
1. Isaiah said there is only one God and only one Savior, and he
said both are Jehovah and none other. Also he repeated this in many verses in
order to make sure we got the message.
2. John said there is more than one
god and you can tell them apart by the way you spell the word 'god'. A capital
'G' for one and a small 'g' for the other. Just a thought...'a' god, as in John
1:1, could mean more than 2 gods. Why did I have to think of that? I am confused
3. Luke says 'a' Savior in Luke 2:11. That means he thinks there is
only one Savior, but then 'a' savior could mean multiple Saviors also in order
for us to be consistent with 'a' god in John 1:1.
I guess Luke did not know
which way it was.
4. Paul, in Titus, definitely said there are two Saviors.
Jehovah was mentioned three times, since Jesus Christ was not mentioned, and
there was a capital 'G'. Jesus Christ was mentioned three times by name. But
wait, every time Jesus Christ was mentioned, there was a capital 'G' also. Paul
appears to disagree with Isaiah except if you throw in the confusion factor of
the 'cases' for the letter 'g', then he agrees with Isaiah. Paul must have been
5. Along comes John again in 1John 4:1 to confuse us even more. He
appears to agree with Isaiah, but then he disagrees with himself in John 1:1. It
sounds like he is confused too.
6. Then Luke decides definitely in Acts 4:12,
that Jesus Christ is the Savior. "...there is no salvation in anyone else, for
there is not another name under heaven that has been given among men by which we
must get saved."
Instead of being 'undecided' as he appeared to be in Luke
2:11, Luke comes out strongly against Isaiah in Acts 4:11.
7. Isaiah wrote in
Isaiah 41:14, 43:14, 44:24, 47:4, 48:17, 49:7, 49:26, 54:5, and 54:8, that
Jehovah is the Redeemer. He hints in Isaiah 59:20 that another is the Redeemer.
The Gospels, Acts, and many other New Testament books read that Jesus Christ is
Conflicts, and Inconsistencies abound in the NWT.
there any Jehovah's Witnesses who care to respond?
Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First
and the Last, all mean essentially the same thing. Alpha and Omega are merely
the Greek words for 'First and Last'.
Rev 21:5-6, And the One seated on
the throne (it has to be Jehovah, the capitol 'O' in 'One' proves it) said:
"Look! I am making all things new." Also he says: "Write, because these words
are faithful and true." And he said to me: "They have come to pass! I am the
Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end."
So it is Jehovah who is the
beginning and the end, not Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 44:6, "I am the First and
the Last, and besides me there is no god."
So it is Jehovah who is the first
and the last, not Jesus Christ.
Rev 1:8, "I am the Alpha and the Omega,
says Jehovah GOD", "the One who is and who was and who is coming, the Almighty."
This says it is Jehovah, not Jesus Christ.
Rev 2:8, "...the first and
the last, who became dead and came to life [again]." Who other can this mean but
Jesus Christ? Did Jehovah die and come back to life? I thought Jehovah said he
was the first and the last in Isaiah 44:6 above. Rev 2:8 could be only about
Jesus Christ and proves that 'Jehovah' and Jesus Christ are one in the same GOD
according to the NWT.
Rev 22:13, "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first
and the last, the beginning and the end."
This would clinch it if we could
show who said it. Rev 22:16 proves it is Jesus Christ who said it,
Jesus, send my angel to bear witness to you people of these things for the
Not surprisingly, the NWT, in verse 6 said "...These words
are faithful and true, yes, Jehovah the God of the inspired expressions of the
prophets sent his angel forth to show his slaves (? Slaves?) the things that
must shortly take place." So Jehovah sent the angel in Vs 6, and Jesus sent the
angel in vs 16. Once again, the NWT proves that Jehovah and Jesus Christ are one
in the same GOD.
Once again, "Watchtower Society, please show me the Greek
word for 'jehovah' in Rev 22:6?"
Jehovah Witnesses deny the immortality of the soul. They
say, when we die, we just lie in the grave oblivious to everything. Let them
explain these verses which show the immortality of the human soul.
14: 15-16, "However, down to Sheol you will be brought, to the remotest parts of
the pit (hmmm they do not believe in hell either). THOSE SEEING YOU WILL GAZE
EVEN AT YOU, THEY WILL GIVE CLOSE EXAMINATION EVEN TO YOU..."
How can the
dead gaze at you and examine you if they do not have an immortal
Matt 17:3, "And look! THERE APPEARED TO THEM MOSES AND ELIAS
CONVERSING WITH HIM." Moses and Elias died hundreds of years before this. How
then, did they appear and speak if they were dead in the grave?
3:19, "In this [state] also he went his way and PREACHED TO THE SPIRITS IN
What spirits? If you are dead in the grave and cannot hear, then how
can you be preached to?
JW's believe only 144,000 are going to be saved in Heaven and the rest will
spend eternity in an earthly paradise. They badly misinterpret Rev 7:4 to show
this. Every JW I have asked has responded with a "Yes" when I ask them if they
have one of these 144,000 'tickets'. How can this be with millions of JW's
making the same claim? Of course they all say Charles Taze Russell, their
founder, has a ticket. Wait a minute though. Rev 7:4-8 clearly says the 144,000
were all Jews, and Rev 14:4 says they were all male virgins. Was C.T. Russell a
virgin Jew? I doubt it. It seems he does not warrant a ticket. According to the
NWT, all women are barred also.
Rev 7:9, "After these things I saw, and
look! a great crowd which no man was able to number, out of all nations and
tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb,
dressed in white robes, and there were palm branches in their hands." I would
say there are many more than 144,000 in this crowd since no one could number
them, wouldn't you agree?
Who will send the Holy Spirit?
John 14:26 - Jehovah will.
John 16:7 -
Jesus Christ will.
Who is the Judge?
Isaiah 33:22 - Jehovah is.
2Tim 4:1 - Jesus Christ
Who is the Shepherd?
Psalm 23:1 - Jehovah is.
10:11 - Jesus Christ is.
Who is the Light of the World?
Psalm 27:1, Micah 7:8
- Jehovah is.
John 8:12 - Jesus Christ is.
Who is the King of the Jews?
Isaiah 33:22,44:6 -
Matt 27:37, John 19:21 - Jesus Christ is.
Who raised Jesus Christ from the dead?
Acts 3:15 -
John 2:19-21, John 10:18- Jesus Christ did.
Who is Lord of Lords?
Deut 10:17 - Jehovah is.
17:14, 1Cor 8:6 - Jesus Christ is.
Who is Worshiped?
Matt 4:10, Luke 4:8 - Jehovah
Heb 1:6, Rev 5:11-14 - Jesus Christ is.
Luke 4:8 is very clear,
"It is Jehovah your GOD you must worship, AND IT IS HIM ALONE YOU MUST RENDER
Hebrews 1:6 is equally clear, "But when again he brings his
Firstborn (capitol 'F') into the inhabited earth, he says: "AND LET ALL GOD'S
ANGELS DO OBEISANCE TO HIM"."
Angels doing reverence to Jesus Christ with a
capitol 'F' for Firstborn, could only mean that Jesus Christ is GOD. Remember
the small 'g' the NWT used for GOD in John 1:1?
Also, the same Greek word,
"proskuneo", meaning, "to worship", is used in both Luke 4:8, and Hebrews 1:6,
whereas in the NWT in Hebrews it is translated to "obeisance". Why the
They moved one little comma, and by doing so changed the meaning of Luke
23:43 to suit their teaching.
And He said to them: "Truly I tell you
today, you will be with me in paradise." NWT
And he said to them: "Truly I tell you,
today you will be with me in paradise." Other Bibles.
You see, they teach
that when you die, you are dead in the grave, period. How then could the good
thief be with Christ that day in paradise?
Changes Jehovah Witnesses
made to Holy Scripture to suit their false teaching seem to be never ending.
They changed Zech 12:10 from...
"...And they have looked upon Me,
whom they have pierced."
To, "...and they will certainly look to the One whom
they pierced through..."
Clearly GOD had said HE was pierced. The NWT says
One was pierced. It would be embarrassing for the Watchtower Society to admit
that the Son, who was the one pierced, is GOD.
They changed Heb 1:8 from...
"...Thy throne, O GOD,
is forever and ever..."
To, "GOD is your throne forever and ever..."
Father calls the Son GOD in this passage, but not in the NWT.
They added the word 'other' four times in Col
This is the section where Jesus is described as being the creator
of all things. Since the JW's believe Jesus Christ is a created being, they
inserted these words to show He was before all 'other' created things, thus
implying that He too is created. The word 'other' (heteros or allos) does not
appear in the Greek text. If the word is not in the Greek text, then please
explain to me why it was inserted by the WTS in these verses?
JW's teach that Jesus Christ was Michael the Archangel
before he was born of Mary. At that point, Michael disappeared forever. However,
the NWT translators forgot that little 'fact', or maybe St. John did, when he
wrote the Book of Revelations. For in Rev 12:5, there is Jesus Christ, and in
Rev 12:7, there is Michael again. Hmmm, they look like separate persons to me,
according to the NWT.
Torture stake or cross? JW's teach that Jesus was nailed to
a torture stake, with both hands overhead and one nail piercing both, and not to
a cross with arms outstretched. The Greek word used here is "stauros" which
means a cross or an upright stake. The WTS ignored history which plainly shows
us that persons were crucified by Romans using a cross with an upright piece AND
a crossbar for the arms. Archaeological finds have proven this. Not only that,
they ignored their own NWT which plainly says, "Unless I see in his hands the
print of the nailS and stick my finger into the print of the
nailS and stick my hand into his side, I will certainly
not believe (John 20:25)." Clearly the word "nail" is used in the plural, yet
the WTS teaches that a single nail was used through both hands.
Do not miss
the paragraph under "Some Other Interesting Tidbits",
"I and the Father are ONE." John 10:30
If they are
ONE, then both have to be
"The Father is greater than I am." John 14:28

could speak in his human nature as a man, and the Father is greater in John
He spoke in His divine nature as GOD in John 10:30, and is therefore
One with the Father.
These are but a few Conflicts, Inconsistencies and Changes, out of hundreds
in the NWT, but I think you get the drift. This book is so full of errors that
GOD could not possibly have had a hand in producing it. It has been called,
'THE WORLDS MOST DANGEROUS BOOK'.
Now that I
have pointed out numerous conflicts and inconsistencies in the NWT, I will ask
you to go back and reread the very first sentence in red
in this document. Is the NWT from GOD?
Some other interesting tidbits...
The W.T.S. teaches
that Jesus did not rise from the dead, but was "etherized". Do they call the day
that the Lord rose from the dead "Ether Sunday" (a little humor there from one
of my friends)? They also teach that when we die, we just rot in the grave.
Hmmm, take a look at their founder, Charles Taze Russell's gravesite,
marked with no less than a pyramid (pyramid?
a sure sign of the ocCULT). Be sure to read the
inscriptions on it, especially the one that says "RISEN WITH
How can we rot in the grave and at the same time rise with a
"risen" Christ who the W.T.S. claims did not rise at all?
Also, since they do
not believe in the "cross" as I have mentioned above (the torture stake), there
emblazoned on the pyramid is none other than... a "CROSS", and
with it a "CROWN", and not
just on one side, but on all four sides of the pyramid. Under the Cross and
Crown on one side is an inscription which reads, "Watch Tower Bible and Tract
On his tombstone is written,"Laodicean Messenger", which is an
obvious reference to Rev 3:14-16, the letter to the Church at Laodicea. If you
will look at the first verse of all seven letters to the various Churches in Rev
2 and 3, you will find that it is a different title of Jesus Christ (or GOD) for
each Church. In Rev 3:14 his title is "Amen, the faithful and true witness."
Compare with Rev 2:8, the Church at Smyrna, the "First and the Last", or Rev
2:18, the Church at Thyratira, the "Son of GOD". So just who is the W.T.S.
saying that the "Laodicean Messenger" is? Are they saying Russell is Jesus
Christ (or GOD), or are they saying he is the one who was commanded to write the
message, Saint John, or are they saying he was a lukewarm Laodicean who will be
vomited out of the mouth of GOD in verse 16?
Did you notice the date of C.T.
Russell's death on his tombstone? It was on Halloween, a perfect day for the
Dear W.T.S. or any J.W..

Conflicts, Inconsistencies, and
Changes in the N.W.T...
What is your response to
these things emblazoned on your founders ocCULTIC pyramid?
They are in direct
conflict with your teaching and with the N.W.T..
I have received non-substantive rebuttals from Jehovah
Witnesses regarding this writing.
There again, they complain a lot, but they
do not have any valid arguments to refute what I have said in this document.
When I ask them to name one JW before 1800, all they answer is Isaiah 43:10,12,
"You are my witnesses, said the Lord..." This is the verse they try to use as
justification for their existence. Well, Isaiah did not choose them, they chose
Isaiah well over 2000 years after he died. This is as bad an answer as the
Church of Christ, claiming they are the true Church because of their name, or
Baptists claiming the same because of John the Baptist. JW's have no other
answer when you ask them to name one JW before 1800.
2. When I ask them to
show me the word "jehovah" in some authentic historical writing before 1270,
again, they are unable to answer. Instead they point to other Protestant Bibles,
all written in 1611 or after, in which the word is used a few times, about four
times in the King James. When I reply, 10,000 lies do not make one truth, it
falls upon deaf ears. I said, before 1270, not after,
in my question.
3. When I ask them to show me a Greek dictionary which equates the Greek
word "kurios" (Lord), to "jehovah", they cannot do it.
4. When I ask them to
show me the authentic historical documents, to "prove" their false charge that
Catholic Church apostatized soon after it was founded, they cannot produce even
When I ask them why didn't even one of their translators for the NWT know Greek,
I am told that "jehovah" did the translating.
When I ask them about the "only 144,000 who will be saved", if they have one of
those 144,000 tickets, they all respond with, "Yes". Hmmm, about 4.5 million
JW's and only 144,000 tickets and each has a ticket? I think something is amiss
in their calculations. Besides, there are only 143,999 tickets left, as their
founder, C.T. Russell, took the first one (naturally), so they have told
7. When I ask for answers as to why they fit perfectly with the following
observations, all of which are sure signs of a cult, I receive no answers at
all, or a flat out denial, which is the typical answer one would expect from
a. They teach that all other religions outside of theirs were founded
by satan, so they must not believe what the others have to say. This false
teaching of theirs reminds me of Genesis 3:4-5 and John 8:44. The truth is that
all religions were founded by mere human persons save for ONE, the only Church
which Jesus Christ founded. This is provable, whereas their false charge is not.
Simply ask them for "proof" of what they say. You will find that they do not
have any proof whatsoever.
b. They are not to read any material outside of
what the WTS teaches. If they accept it as a courtesy, they must throw it away
before reading it. This is flat out denial of individual free will, and is as
cultic as it comes. It is nothing less than total mind control. Members must
believe only what they are told to believe by the Watch Tower Society. History
has repeated itself, for Fascism, Nazism, Communism, and other "ism's" demanded
similar obedience. And where are they today?
Those who do not profit from the
mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them.
c. If any member leaves JW's,
they are immediately shunned or disowned by their families (if JW's) and by
fellow believers. This is nothing more than extreme peer pressure designed to
keep the members in line. I have talked with JW's who say they live in fear of
being isolated by friends and family, and stay feeling trapped, only for those
d. They cannot celebrate birthdays because Pharaoh had a birthday.
They cannot celebrate Christmas because they teach that Jesus Christ is not GOD.
They are not patriotic towards the country in which they live. What a dull and
drab way to live, to do only what a cult demands.
8. When I ask
them....well, I could go on and on, but I am sure that you have the message by

is, "If the truth is so painful, it is not my fault that I must bring it out in
the open, for we are all commanded by Holy Scripture to search for the truth and
to expose error".
"God is spirit, and those who worship him must
worship in spirit and truth."
"Everyone who is of the
truth hears my voice."
Do those who practice Arianism by
denying the divinity of Jesus Christ, hear His voice?
"For he will render
to every man according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek
for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those
who are factious and do not obey the truth, but obey wickedness, there will be
wrath and fury."
"Therefore, putting away falsehood,
let everyone speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of

activity of Satan will be with all power and with pretended signs and wonders,
and with all wicked deception for those who are to perish, because they
refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a
strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, so that all may be
condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in

listen to us.
By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of
There are many more verses showing that we are
obligated to search for the truth.
See, 1Tim 6:5, 2Tim 3:7, Tit 1:1, Tit
1:14, Heb 10:26, Jam 3:14, 2Pet 2:2, 1John 1:6-8, Rev 21:27
One final observation: When JW's come to my door, I ask them if they are
online. They reply that they are not, as they are taught that the Internet is
satanic. I must then ask, for those of you who are online, "If you are taught
that the Internet is satanic, then why are you reading this file, and why do you
have websites of your own"? If the Internet is satanic, then your websites are
also, are they not? I can only conclude that JW's do not abide by their own
