FFtruther144: "EVERY bible that is based on their work [Wescott & Hort's] is a pro New World Order bible, period! The evil mis-translation is there, end of story. Sorry, but facts are facts."
Facts are facts. Yes, but in this case, what Walter Veith forwarded in these videos is a slanted presentation of the facts. Veith brought to light some truths (facts) here, no doubt. His position is one of ‘night or day,’ ‘black or white,’ ‘good or evil.’ By your use above of, "The evil mis-translation is there, end of story," I can see that you too see the work of W & H Greek as "evil."
But, things are not as clear cut as you would like to believe. If we look at the whole picture, we are going to find some individual's actions in all three groups of family manuscripts faulty or imperfect. That's because we are imperfect. The imperfections are magnified when we don't agree with someone else's view.
I do not agree with all the known beliefs and actions of Wescott and Hort. Some are weird. Others are downright wrong. However, that does not mean, I can not be helped by their expertise on the subject of biblical manuscripts and their historical transmission. The same with Walter Veith. To be honest, I got this weird impression of this man (Veith) when looking at his videos, at times he looked to me like a circus clown, at other times I wondered if he was capable of abusing an innocent child close by. I still looked at his videos, and I agreed with many of things he was saying. Other times, I felt he was letting emotions getting the best of him. Some of his conclusions were way off.
He stated that a Watchtower translator (unnamed) was given a thick marker to go over the King James (the only Bible) Witnesses had before their own (Not true!), and asked to remove or alter anything that disagreed with the WT doctrine, and that's how the NWT was done. This kind of stament is made by someone foolish who hasn't compared both translated texts with the originals. IF, he had done that sincerely, he would not say such silly comment. Any sincere person who takes the time to do an honest comparison, would see that both translated texts are differently across the board. The translation principles of both committees were a contrast in function. You can make a case the KJV succeeded where the NWT didn't, but that's beside the point. Veith is silly-wrong on this one. He said that Wescott or Hort believed in evolution, I don't. But Wescott & Hort were experts in the field of biblical manuscripts, and Greek, and most of us are not. Moses had killed a man, but later God used him to free his people from bondage in Egypt. So, everything is not black or white, good or evil.
We live in a world where we are forced to make compromises. Not one single man or Bible translation is perfect. Not one Greek Text is perfect, or the people behind them. Since we don't know it all, and we don't have all the answers, it may be prudent to use what's available to us, even if we find a mole along the path in the search for answers to our many questions. I appreciate your expressed view.
