Conflicts, Inconsistencies, and Changes,
in the Jehovah Witness
'New World Translation'.



"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 men."
So says the file "What do Jehovah's Witnesses Believe" as taken from their website at http://194.234.87.103. 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 few examples.



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 Jehovah.
Jesus Christ is considered the 'mighty god', whereas Jehovah is the 'almighty God'.
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."
Exodus 20:1-3

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 NWT.


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 Bibles.

Note!
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 22:18-20.


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:
Jude 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, '
KURIOS' here?
Now if they had left '
Lord' in this verse, it would have proven that Michael and the Lord are not one in the same.

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 Christ."
The NWT reads, "...God our Father and the
Lord Jesus Christ." Hmmm, identical translations.
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.
Hey, Watchtower Society!
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."
The NWT reads, In answer Jesus said to him: "It is said, 'You must not put
Jehovah your GOD to the test.'"
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?

2Cor 3:17, "Now the '
Lord' is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the 'Lord' is, there is freedom."
The NWT 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?

2Cor 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' the Almighty."
Again yet, where do they get the translation of '
Kurios' to be Jehovah?

Dear Watchtower Society:

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?
How many Redeemers are there?
Note! All verses in this section are quotes from the NWT.

JW's teach that the Holy Spirit is not a person but a force, as mentioned above.

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 TO GOD."

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?

Acts 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 twice?

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.

Isaiah 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.
Watchtower 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 I."
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? Confused?
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 repeatedly.
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 the world."
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 Lord."
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 Savior.

Tit 1:4, "...peace from GOD [the] Father and Christ Jesus our Savior."
This says Jesus Christ is the Savior, not Jehovah. Answers anyone?

Tit 2:10, "...the teaching of our Savior GOD, in all things."
This contradicts Tit 1:4, by saying Jehovah is the Savior...again!

Tit 2:13, "...of the great GOD and of [the] Savior of us, Christ Jesus."
Now we are back to Jesus Christ as the Savior.

Tit 3:4, "the part of our Savior, GOD..."
Back to Jehovah as Savior.

Tit 3:6, "...through Jesus Christ our Savior..."
Back to Jesus Christ as Savior.

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'.

I think we had better summarize what we have found, according to what the NWT says that is:

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 enough.
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 confused.
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 the Redeemer.
Conflicts, and Inconsistencies abound in the NWT.

Are 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,
"I, Jesus, send my angel to bear witness to you people of these things for the congregations."
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.

Isaiah 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 soul?

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?

1Pet 3:19, "In this [state] also he went his way and PREACHED TO THE SPIRITS IN HEAVEN."
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 is.


Who is the Shepherd?
Psalm 23:1 - Jehovah is.
Jn 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 - Jehovah is.
Matt 27:37, John 19:21 - Jesus Christ is.



Who raised Jesus Christ from the dead?
Acts 3:15 - Jehovah did.
John 2:19-21, John 10:18- Jesus Christ did.



Who is Lord of Lords?
Deut 10:17 - Jehovah is.
Rev 17:14, 1Cor 8:6 - Jesus Christ is.


Who is Worshiped?
Matt 4:10, Luke 4:8 - Jehovah is.
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 SACRED SERVICE."
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 difference?


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

It should read...
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..."
The Father calls the Son GOD in this passage, but not in the NWT.



They added the word 'other' four times in Col 1:16-17...
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", below.


"I and the Father are ONE." John 10:30
If they are ONE, then both have to be GOD.
"The Father is greater than I am." John 14:28
Is there a contradiction here?
No, not at all. JW's teach that Jesus Christ is man and not GOD.
Since he spoke as man, which he did in John 14:28, then that verse is correct.
However, almost all other Christians teach that Jesus Christ is GOD AND man.
He has two natures, one human and one divine.
Therefore he could speak in his human nature as a man, and the Father is greater in John 14:28.
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 CHRIST".
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 Society".
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 ocCULT.

Dear W.T.S. or any J.W..
Read again, my title of this page,
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.

1. 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 one.
5. 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.
6. 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 me.
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 cult:
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 reasons.
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 now.

I can only conclude that this file is a thorn in their side.
My response 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."
John 4:24

"Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice."
John 18:37
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."
Romans 2:6-8

"Therefore, putting away falsehood, let everyone speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another."
Ephesians 4:25

"The coming of the lawless one by the 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 unrighteousness."
2Thess 2:9-12

"This is good, and it is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."
1Tim 2:3-4

"We are of God. Whoever knows God listens to us, and he who is not of God does not listen to us.
By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error."
1John 4:6

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 teaching.



"EVERY WORD OF GOD IS TESTED;
HE IS A SHIELD TO THOSE WHO TAKE REFUGE IN HIM
.
ADD NOTHING TO HIS WORDS, LEST HE REPROVE YOU,
AND YOU BE EXPOSED AS A DECEIVER
."
Proverbs 30:5-6

It is obvious who the deceiver is here. It is the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society.

An honest man alters his ideas to fit the truth.
A dishonest man alters the truth to fit his ideas.

However, He who has refused to acknowledge the truth in life will be forced to confront it in death.

I have asked Jehovah's Witnesses many times, to please show me the verse in the Bible which gave the authority for any human person to found his, or her own church other than the
ONE which Jesus Christ founded in Matthew 16:18.
Not one has been able to do so. If there is no authority,
then there is no credibility in their beliefs or in what they say.
How could there be?

Saint Paul said it all in 2Timothy 3:5,
"But understand this: there will be terrifying times in the last days. People will be self-centered and lovers of money, proud, haughty, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, irreligious, callous, implacable, slanderous, licentious, brutal, hating what is good, traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
as they make a pretense of religion but deny its power. Avoid them."
2Timothy 3:1-5

The "
pretense of religion" and the fact that they "deny its power",
means that "
they do not have any authority".
How wise Saint Paul was in the last two words of those verses when he said...
"
Avoid them."
