Is a tree lying on the ground horizontally still a tree? There is nothing wrong with the translation as it does not go into such detail. Such verses are not discussing the configuration of this tree but simply describe the material used. The Watchtower does not want you to consider this possibility but at least you know it was not a masonry wall or something of that sort by such verses. Besides the timber our Lord carried could have been attatched to an existing and still living tree.
The problem then is the lie or lies being told and the fact that everyone must teach them or else. And when you look further the Watchtower does not even know the date on which our Lord really died and seem totally ignorant about the 7 days of Passover itself. They keep forcing His death to coincide with the death of the Lambs which is really stupid since our Lord ate this very same Passover Lamb with His disciples after such Lambs were killed. So the lies, the ignorance, the lack of repentance on the part of this organization and its cruelty is the real problem. Get out of her should be the cry of all that care for honesty and truth.
