    I'm not a JW, but it does not appear the word 'true' was added to what is in The Manuscripts. The word "true" is in The Manuscripts in the original languages.

    Jeremiah 10:10 KJV But the LORD H3068 is the *true H571* God, H430 he is the living H2416 God, H430 and an everlasting H5769 king: H4428 at his wrath H7110 the earth H776 shall tremble, H7493 and the nations H1471 shall not be able to abide H3557 his indignation.

    2 Chronicles 15:3 KJV Now for a long H7227 season H3117 Israel H3478 hath been without H3808 the *true H571* God, H430 and without a teaching H3384 priest, H3548 and without law. H8451 https://www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/2ch/15/3/ss1/s...

    1 John 5:20 KJV And G1161 we know G1492 that G3754 the Son G5207 of God G2316 is come, G2240 and G2532 hath given G1325 us G2254 an understanding, G1271 that G2443 we may know G1097 him that is *true, G228* and G2532 we are G2070 in G1722 him that is *true, G228* even in G1722 his G846 Son G5207 Jesus G2424 Christ.

    hi there

    no jws did not add the word "true".

    which leaves them with their jesus being "a" god, but not true god, so therefore he must be a false god.

      they say jesus i "a" god but not the true god. the opposite of true is false. so to them he must be a false god. but they always change topic if you ask them to tell you what kind of god he is if he is not true god.

    There is only one true God. All other so called gods are not gods at all.

    No, at least not in the New Testament ones. I have a Greek interlinear and the word “true” does appear in the ancient texts in both John and 1John. I don’t know about the other two.

    No. your spreading lies...

    This is what the bible says about liars

    Revelation 21:8 But as for the cowards and those without faith and those who are disgusting in their filth and murderers and the sexually immoral and those practicing spiritism and idolaters and all the liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. This means the second death.”

    KJV of Jeremiah 10:But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.

    2 Chronicles 15:Now for a long season Israel hath been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law.

    1John 5:And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

    John 17:3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

    Only if it was there in the original writings.

    The word 'true' is in the original manuscript. Blasphemers of the Jehovah's witnesses come up with their lies and blasphemy to discredit the NWT. The word 'true' is found in the original manuscript and it is also in the Trinitarian Bibles. The word has always been there and they keep lying to the world just for no other reason but to carry out the work of their father, the father of all lies, the devil.

    What ever happened to the bible being the infallible word of god? Now there are people here who claim things are added, corrupting the bible, and only THEY can tell what is added. Either it is the infallible word or it is corrupt. You can't have it both ways. And please try to keep the corrupt parts to ONE group. We already have someone claimimg the catholics corrupted it, now it's the JW. Will the Baptists be the next to have fingers pointed at them? What about the Protestants?

      the manuscripts of the Bible can be found and matched for credibility. The word of God can never be fallible.
