    The worlds 'most accurate English translation', (independently assessed by associate professor Jason BeDhun) has undergone its latest revision. Begun sometime in 2005 this refining process took eight years and a team of volunteer researchers to accomplish and we thank them for their hard work! We are reminded of the words of the psalmist, that Gods word is like refined Gold and its with pleasure and excitement that we announce this latest development. For those interested you can pick up a free copy at your local Kingdom Hall of Jehovahs witnesses or from anyone of Jehovahs witnesses engaged in the public ministry. May the peace of our God be with you.

    Could you provide the link to the full review please.

    I'd be interested in a number of topical issues not least of which being his view on the NW translation's importation and use of the name "Jehovah" over the original text, how it is used in regard to the scriptures related to Jesus and the subsequent impact on the positioning level of Christ in relation to the Jehovah Witness previously established doctrine.

    Thanks.

    Refined gold? What's the difference between 'refining' and 'adulterating'? And why would we need a more accurate English translation in the first place? Oh, wait, it's because of that whole Tower of Babel thing isn't it?

    I'll take that as a no you can't provide the link. As per my post, it seems to me that the person who's name you misspelt by the way, also criticises the NWT for the inappropriate use of the name Jehovah and it's use by your religious corporation's doctrinal position on scriptures relating to Jesus and he says that the NWT use of it is tilted towards that doctrinal bias.

    Obviously you don't want to discuss this any more than you want to discuss the other dubious claims, doctrines and extreme viewpoints by your religious leaders.

    I'm curious. Do you know what word is used to denote God in the original text? Maybe this would help.

    Prove or disprove your assertion that "Jehova" is not a correct translation of the name for God.

    I am not a Jehova's Witness btw, not even religious. I'm mainly just curious and have read a bit of the bible.

    Are these "names" in context or are most of them words that refer to god like "him," "her" or "they?"
