Questions for Jehovah’s Witnesses

1. Why does the Watchtower [WT] translate “ego eimi” as “I am”, 133 out of 134 New Testament occurrences, except where it proves Christ is God in John 8:58? Here they translate “ego eimi” as “I have been”. Why?

2. Why does the WT translate the New Testament word for Lord (ie. “Kurios”) as Jehovah, except where it proves Christ is God? For example, “Jesus Christ is Lord” in Philippians 2:11 and “Jesus is Lord” in 1 Corinthians 12:3.

3. Can you say that Jesus Christ is Lord? (see 1 Corinthians 12:3).

4. Why does the WT add “other” four times in Colossians 1:16, 17 and in Philippians 2:9 to deny Christ’s deity, when “other” is not in any New Testament manuscripts? Is it right to add words to the Bible which change Bible doctrines? Read the rest of this entry »
