THE NWT BIBLE: A DIABOLICAL PERVERSION OF SCRIPTURE

THE NWT BIBLE: A DIABOLICAL PERVERSION OF SCRIPTURE

In this post I will show how the New World Translation of the Jehovah’s Witnesses is a deliberate, diabolical perversion of the God-breathed Scriptures, which was produced to intentionally obscure the Deity of the Lord Jesus and the divine Personhood of the Holy Spirit. I will prove this by contrasting how this perversion renders key texts related to the Trinity with two major Evangelical translations of the Holy Bible.

Here are the links to the particular edition of the NWT and the Evangelical versions of the sacred Scriptures which I will be employing:

New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (1984 Edition).

New American Standard Bible 1995 (NASB1995).

New International Version (1984 Edition).

 NASB1995 NIV1984  NWT1984
“I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.” Zechariah 12:10

“And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, ‘You are certainly God’s Son!’” Matthew 14:33

“And behold, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him… When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful. Read full chapter Matthew 28:9, 17

“‘Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.’” John 8:58

“Simon Peter, a bond-servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who have received a faith of the same kind as ours, by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ:” 2 Peter 1:1

“The word which He sent to the sons of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ (He is Lord of all)—” Acts 10:36

“For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,” Philippians 2:9

“As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow.” 1 Peter 1:10-11

“and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans 8:27

“And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.”

“Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, ‘Truly you are the Son of God.’”

“Suddenly Jesus met them. ‘Greetings,’ he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him… When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.”

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father’s side, has made him known.”

“‘I tell you the truth,’ Jesus answered, ‘before Abraham was born, I am!’”

“‘We are not stoning you for any of these,’ replied the Jews, ‘but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.’”

“You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”

“Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.”
“Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of Christ, who is God over all, forever praised! Amen.”

“while we wait for the blessed hope – the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,”

“And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, ‘Let all God’s angels worship him.’… But about the Son he says, ‘Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever, and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom.’”

“Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours:”

“You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all.”

“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,”

“Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care, trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow.”

“And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.”

 “And I will pour out upon the house of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem the spirit of favor and entreaties, and they will certainly look to the One whom they pierced through, and they will certainly wail over Him as in the wailing over an only [son]; and there will be a bitter lamentation over him as when there is bitter lamentation over the firstborn [son].”

“Then those in the boat did obeisance to him, saying: ‘You are really God’s Son.’”

“And, look! Jesus met them and said: ‘Good day!’ They approached and caught him by his feet and did obeisance to him… and when they saw him they did obeisance, but some doubted.”

“In [the] beginning the Word was, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god… No man has seen God at any time; the only-begotten god who is in the bosom [position] with the Father is the one that has explained him.”

“Jesus said to them: ‘Most truly I say to YOU, Before Abraham came into existence, I have been.’”

“The Jews answered him: ‘We are stoning you, not for a fine work, but for blasphemy, even because you, although being a man, make yourself a god.’”

“If YOU ask anything in my name, I will do it.”

“Pay attention to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the holy spirit has appointed YOU overseers, to shepherd the congregation of God, which he purchased with the blood of his own [Son].”

“to whom the forefathers belong and from whom the Christ [sprang] according to the flesh: God, who is over all, [be] blessed forever. Amen.”

“while we wait for the happy hope and glorious manifestation of the great God and of [the] Savior of us, Christ Jesus,”

“But when he again brings his Firstborn into the inhabited earth, he says: ‘And let all God’s angels do obeisance to him.’… But with reference to the Son: ‘God is your throne forever and ever, and [the] scepter of your kingdom is the scepter of uprightness.’”

“Simon Peter, a slave and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained a faith, held in equal privilege with ours, by the righteousness of our God and [the] Savior Jesus Christ:”

“He sent out the word to the sons of Israel to declare to them the good news of peace through Jesus Christ: this One is Lord of all [others].”

“For this very reason also God exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every [other] name,”

“Concerning this very salvation a diligent inquiry and a careful search were made by the prophets who prophesied about the undeserved kindness meant for YOU. They kept on investigating what particular season or what sort of [season] the spirit in them was indicating concerning Christ when it was bearing witness beforehand about the sufferings for Christ and about the glories to follow these.”

“Yet he who searches the hearts knows what the meaning of the spirit is, because it is pleading in accord with God for holy ones.”
