healmehelpme asked: Hey do you know that they released a new translation of the bible at the annual meeting this time around? Smh that I'm still caught up in this. Got any tips?
ya i know!! the 'sister's proof' version lol. people is been really eager to get that version, you can’t possibly have enough bibles i mean, is not like we are talking about just one and only book -.- .
For starters the New World Translation bible is not even recognized as an actual Bible for many bible scholars.
For example a professor of New Testament at Princeton University, calls the NWT “a frightful mistranslation” “Erroneous” and “Pernicious” “Reprehensible” “If JW take this translation seriously, they are polytheist”.
Also, Dr. William Barclay, a leading Greek scholar, said “it is abudantly clear that a sect which can translate the New Testament like that ins Intellectually dishonest”
The watchtower certainly does not give away the names of the translators of the NWT.. however back in the day 1950 - 1960, there weren’t many members to chose from… in page 50 of Franz book “Crisis of Concience” he says: "Other members of that Committee were Nathan Knorr, Albert Schroeder and George Gangas; Fred Franz, however, was the only one with sufficient knowledge of the Bible languages to attempt translation of this kind. He had studied Greek for two years in the University of Cincinnati but was only self-taught in Hebrew.”
You can imagine the preparation they had in translation and why is so critizised by scholars. To Read more about it check out this research. Or many others out there in the net. (I used this to give you this info x & X ) I encourage you to do as much research as you can, i find that it helps me stay sane, but again we all deal differently, ooh but if you decide to do reasearch try to find unbiased sources, sure there are loads of sites out there against jw doctrines (we’ve all felt hurt) , but u dont want to become angry at witnesses, they just really think what they’re doing is the ‘truth’.. is hard for them to see otherwise unless they really want to get out of that shell.
Back to the new bible topic.. sorry for the ramblings.
"Yes! Lets make another improved version of our already flawed version of a translation of the bible”
I wonder what subtle changes they did.. im just downloading the revision right now. :P
oooh.. i found one:
NWT : 1 Cor. 6: 9.
9 What! Do YOU not know that unrighteous persons will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be misled. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who lie with men, 10 nor thieves, nor greedy persons, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit God’s kingdom. 11 And yet that is what some of YOU were. But YOU have been washed clean, but YOU have been sanctified, but YOU have been declared righteous in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and with the spirit of our God.
2013 REVISED VERSION:
There, there.. just in case people had any doubts.. we’re throwing out there the word homosexual TWICE (so when i knock at your door i can show you how explicit the bible
(mybibleversion)is about it) and compare it to thieves and extortioners, drunkards .. cause we all know how similar these concepts are! *facepalm*
Anyway.. i could vent forever!! lol..
Tell me about you, are you still going to the meetings? are you baptized? how old are you?.. all i can tell you first hand if you are thinking about leaving the b0rg is be open and don’t let anger take over you, which is pretty easy considering you realize you’ve been lied to or tricked into something, especially if you are still going to the meetings and have started to realized what their truth is based on. Don’t be afraid to know more.. to learn. I’d love to know your story .. msg me again if you see this, we can have a little chat, i want to help in any way i can.

I’ve allowed distance to take away so much from me. Is taken my best friend, ex girlfriends, and potential love partners… and it just sucks and hurts so much everytime. I could go ahead and say i wont do it again, no long distance for me cause that shit just breaks me down, but then i’d be lying cause most of the time you just cant control who you fall for, when and where. It just happens and is as valid as if the person was here or there.
Giving up on love is one of the things i hate the most, I see it as a way of potraying myself as a failure… in the end i am giving up on something that could be potentionally beautiful. There could be many reasons, either because is long distance and is hard to deal with, bc the person has someone already and you didn’t know, or bc they got someone recently and you don’t want to interfiere, maybe is a matter of diferent interests, wrong time for either of you.. all i know is that it hurts. .. and whatever could have become is no longer a possibility. I’m the kind of person that prefers to go for it instead of wondering what ifs.
I’m going to give myself a chance to make this work, I want to build a love so deep, that distance is not even an issue. Is not about only wishful thinking but about making things happen, cause i’m just god damn capable and there are just not impossibles. I am everything but a failure, rocks can be turn into diamonds.. is hard and it sure depends on having the right rock at hand, i think i have my rock, and im ready to work hard on it.
This comes from an aries. fuck.

I came out to my sister today.
It basicly just slip.. I like girls. She repeated it as a question.
- Do you like girls?
- eh well sometimes, ya i guess. i like girls.
I feel so relieved, i know it wont be the first time this happens and she hasnt made any coments about it, even tho we both know that we know.
But is a big thing for me cause… is my sister.. i grew up with her by my side all my life.. and is just so right. I can’t wait to be able to tell her all about future relationship, or girls ive liked.
On another note, i think I’m ready.. to go out there and really care.
I’m ready to love, im ready to be loved and cared for, im ready to be hurt and learn from it, i want it all. I want to share this wonderful life with someone else, someone special, I dont think i’m that scared anymore. I’ve learnt a lot about me in these last couple of weeks, these past few days mostly. I’ve questioned everything about me and this time around i found answers, and tho i dont agree with it all… i’m content and in peace. I’m ready to move on.
