Another question for Jehovah’s Witnesses

Jehovah’s Witnesses claim that their New World Translation, put together by “translators” without any legitimate credentials (the lead translator dropped out of college in his second year), is superior to other translations. The NWT almost completely eliminates references to the deity of Christ. If they are correct and the original Greek text does not show that Jesus is God, then why does the Greek Orthodox Church believe that Jesus is God? Presumably these people are native speakers of Greek (granted, the language has no doubt changed since the New Testament was written, but at least the early Greek Christians would have known something was fishy). If the deity of Christ is not to be found in the original Greek text, why would native Greek speakers be convinced otherwise? Could it be that the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ twisting of the meaning will not hold water where the language is actually spoken?

    i have a neighbor, a Jehova’s Witness, you can call us friends and we get into heated debates about our religions, but at the end of the day we still are friends and let each other be..
