The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures is the most accurately written bible in the world. It was translated by Jehovah's witnesses. They put back the Name Jehovah into the bible. King James and his scholars took the name of Jehovah out of the bible do to Superstitious reasons. So Satan wants to mislead people by removing the name Jehovah and completely ignoring Him altogether. Satan is trying to promote the doctrine idea of the Trinity, thee gods that make up one God. Jesus said that God Jehovah sent him and created him. Matthew 26:39. And going a little way forward he fell upon his face, praying and saying "My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass away from me. Yet, not as I will, but as You will." If the Father and the Son were not distinct individuals, such a prayer would have been meaningless. Jesus would have been praying to himself, and his will would of necessity have been the Father's will.
because nobody was around when the Bible was "written" nobody truly knows who wrote it or what it means. I personally choose my own beliefs and form my own opinions rather than those of people who judge.

I personally prefer the New King James. When you memorize scripture from a particular version, it becomes your preference, I think, even though there are other good ones as well such as NASB. However, (Re: Mr. Oddplatano...)the New World Translation is not among them. You don't need to look it up. Just do your own research. The group of unknown translators (probably led by Fred Franz) started with their doctrines and then biased the translation accordingly. It is not used by any major group other than Jehovah's Witnesses. Some problem examples are their translation of John 1:1, Hebrews 1:8, Acts 20:28, insertion of the word [other] in Colossians 1 to suggest that Jesus was created, and their insertion of "Jehovah" in place of Kyrios (Lord) in the New Testament, where it is not present in the original text, and doing that inconsistently assuring no cases where it would appear that Jesus is Jehovah.
New World Translation of the holy scriptures is a direct translation from the original inspired texts written in Hebrew and Greek. In fact, the New World Bible Translation Committee even got God's name back in the holy scriptures. If your bible does not include that, then look in the forward for YHWH (Appears almost 7000 times in the original Hebrew texts), and most will tell that they changed God's name (Jehovah) to LORD or other terms. If you want to have a personal relationship with God, then wouldn't you want to please him by using his name? What kind of a friendship could you have with someone if you didn't use their name, but rather, a title. The Merriam-Webster dictionary mentions that God has the definition of "the supreme or ultimate reality," therefore, suggesting this really is a title. So, my preference is to go with the New World Translation, published by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society.
is seems misterg has a lot of questions that he would like to have answered about the use of our Bible. What I suggest is that you go to our website: www.jw.org and request a visit to sit down personally to talk with someone on a one on one bases about our beliefs as well as the Bible translation that we use. Like stated above the NWT is much easier for me personally to us even though I do use other versions in the field as well as when I study with different ones. I can teach them from their Bible but they always seems to want to use the NWT because it is easier to understand. Like I stated earlier, I suggest you or anyone that would like more information about us to please go to our web site and request a visit and someone would be more than happy to call on your because 2 Tim 3:16 state "All Scriptures is inspired of God and beneficial for...setting things straight..." NWT
And as a side note...in some of our publications we also use other Bible translations as well and it is noted when we do.
God loves you for who you are not what you've done or are doing. Paul clearly states in Romans that you cannot earn your salvation. It's in true faith in Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice that we are made right with God. It doesn't matter if you know His true name or not because you can know His name and still go to hell. As long as you love Him with all your heart, soul and mind. Then you shall be saved because you will try to keep the law even when it is not required of you. Jesus prays in John 17:21 saying "I am in you as you are in me" and in John 10:30 States "I and the Father are one." Paul said himself that Jesus was ruler and creator (Colossians 1:16) of this world. Anything coming out of Jesus's mouth is truth and He is one with God and the Holy Spirit as well. He is referred to as a person not a force, He can also be in many places at once, only God has that attribute.
