The New World Translation Bible is a corrupted version of the Bible propogated by the Jehovah’s Witness organization, the Watchtower. In this video, you will see the proof of this claim.
Using the the JW.org website, we will show you how the 2013 NWT version has been changed from the 1984 version. The current 2013 version states in Colossians 1:16-17, “(B)ecause 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. 17 Also, he is before all other things, and by means of him all other things were made to exist.” The Watchtower added in the word “other” before the word “all” in verses 16-17 four times.
Why is this a problem? Just take a look at their 1984 version, which put the word “other” in brackets, indicating it was added in by the translators, (B)ecause by means of him all [other] things were created in the heavens and upon the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, no matter whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All [other] things have been created through him and for him. 17 Also, he is before all [other] things and by means of him all [other] things were made to exist.”
To make matters worse, the “Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures” does not match up with either of their New World Translation versions! As shown in the video, the Greek does not contain the word “other” in Colossians 1:16-17.
This proves the Watchtower is an evil organization which tries to deceive others into thinking Jesus Christ is not God the Creator. Since Jesus cannot both create everything and be created, the New World Translation inserted the word “other” in order to avoid this logical fallacy.
We recommend using a Bible version in which the translators are known (unlike the NWT), and which match up with the original Greek and Hebrew. Some trustworthy Bible versions include the ESV, NASB, NKJV, and KJV.
Point this stunning error out to the Jehovah’s Witness you are evangelizing. Let us pray this will open up their eyes to the deception of their organization.
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 exist.”
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 living English. All of these versions state, “that for by Jesus all things are created” not “all other things.” 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 World Translation.
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.
