John 1:1 K.J.V: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
John 1:1 NWT: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god.”
Jehovah’s Witnesses deny God in flesh for the Scriptures ,therefore change the Bible to agree with their beliefs.
John 14:10 K.J.V Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works.”
John 14:10 NWT: “Do you not believe that I am in union with the Father and the Father is in union with me? The things I say to you I do not speak of my own originality, but the Father who remains in union with me is doing his works.”
In their attempt to avoid the deity of Christ, they scour the Bible and alter any verses that would suggest that Jesus is divine.
Colossians 1:15-17 K.J.V. “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”
Colossians 1:15-17 NWT: “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; 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. Also, he is before all other things, and by means of him all other things were made to exist.
The word “other” is inserted four times in the NWT. It is not in the original Greek, nor is it implied.
Hebrews 1:6 K.J.V. “And when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says, ‘and let all the angels of God worship him.’”
Hebrews 1:6 NWT: “But when he again brings his Firstborn into the inhabited earth, he says: ‘And let all of God’s angels do obeisance to him.’”
In this verse, they translate the Greek word for worship, proskuneo, as “obeisance.” Obeisance is a word that means to honor, show respect, even bow down before someone. Since Jesus, to them, is created, then he cannot be worshiped.
Hebrews 1:8 K.J.V. But of the Son He says, ‘Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, and the righteous scepter is the scepter of his kingdom.’”
Hebrews 1:8 NWT But about the Son, he says: ‘God is your throne forever and ever, and the scepter of your Kingdom is the scepter of uprightness.’
This is a verse where God the Father is calling Jesus God: Since the Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t agree with that, they have changed the Bible, yet again, to agree with their theology
Genesis 1:1-2 K.J.V. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.”
Genesis 1:1-2 NWT In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth Now the earth was formless and desolate, and there was darkness upon the surface of the watery deep, and God’s active force was moving about over the surface of the waters.
The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society denies that the Holy Spirit is alive, the third person of the Trinity. Therefore, changed the correct translation of “…the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters,” to say “…and God’s active force was moving over the surface of the waters.”
