Jehovahs Witnesses New World Translation Bible Changes
This short article shows how the Jehovahs Witness Watchtower Society has purposely edited their own Bible to get it to agree with their false teaching regarding the Lord Jesus Christ. Since the Witnesses deny the godhood (deity) of the Lord Jesus Christ, they ran into a problem with their 1961 edition of their Bible because it mentioned in Hebrews 1:6 that angels worship Jesus. Since only God is to be worshipped, and since they teach that Jesus is not divine, they therefore had a verse in their bible saying that Jesus was divine, because it said “let all the angels worship him” in Hebrews 1:6. So they ended up revising their already corrupt bible to edit out that nasty word “worship” in Hebrews 1:6. Their 1984 Bible was edited to say in Hebrews 1:6 “let all the angels do obeisance to him”. Obeisance is a word that allows the Witnesses some wiggle room so they can no longer be embarrassed by that troublesome world “worship” in Hebrews 1:6. Obeisance means “a movement of the body expressing deep respect or deferential courtesy, as before a superior; a bow, curtsy, or other similar gesture” (per dictionary.com).
