So I get an email from a JW, good friend. He sends a bulk mail that was sent to him and spread around.
Notice the main content:
Subject: Fw: Bible Accuracy Recently on Jeopardy on TV, the questions was- What is the most accurate translation of the Holy Scriptures?
No one got the correct answer, so Alex Trebek said "New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures, printed
by Watchtower Bible Tract Society.
So here was my answer: I researched Jeopardy archives, pretty easy to do. The site is J-archive.com. Just search for "Bible" and all
the questions for a year or more come up. Search "New World Translation" and nothing comes up. This
would be an opinion question, not a fact question, so they would avoid such a question. There was no such
question with Alex saying "New World Translation." I googled the subject and it is discussed in various places
on the web. This is the best possible reason why this untrue statement is circulating:
it's a POWERPOINT GAME someone made up and posted on the internet and called it "Theology Jeopardy."
It isn't the TV Jeopardy, and any common sense adult thinking person would know they would never endorse
one over the other. For all we know, a Jw posted it and then used it as proof. Be careful what you email. Don't assume it's true because you read it.
