It's wrong to knock down a believe of someone when there is truth in everything but the real truth is if you seek the truth you will find it and if you watch you will see. everyone is so focus on down others that they don't help the people their trying to take away from their believes and it crazy because we are in the last days and the devil has many faces and if you can give them help then you should not try to stear them in the wrong direction because you like sin people is trying to save their soul forever and then if you really want to be right then answer these questions
why was god real name taking out the bible by and why did this happen
The Preface to the 1901 edition of the Standard American Edition of the Revised Version of the Bible states:
The change first proposed in the Appendix - that is which substitutes "Jehovah" for "LORD" and "GOD" (printed in small capitals) - is one which will be unwelcome to many, because of the frequency and familiarity of the terms displaces. But the American Revisers, after a careful consideration, were brought to the unanimous conviction that a Jewish superstition, which regarded the Divine Name as too sacred to be uttered, ought no longer to dominate in the English or any other version of the Old Testament, as it fortunately does not in the numerous versions made by modern missionaries. This Memorial Name, explained in Ex. iii. 14, 15, and emphasized as such over and over in the original text of the Old Testament, designates God as the personal God, as the covenant God, the God of revelation, the Deliverer, the Friend of his people; - not merely the abstractly "Eternal One" of many French translations, but the ever living Helper of those who are in trouble. This personal name, with its wealth of sacred associations, is now restored to the place in the sacred text to which it has an unquestionable claim.
For arguments for the pronunciation "Yahweh", see Yahweh.
1530: Iehouah appeared in Tyndale's translation of the Pentateuch (at Exodus 6.3 for instance) upwards of 20 times. This custom continued with Miles Coverdale's translation in 1535, John Rogers Matthew Bible in 1537, the Great Bible of 1539, the Geneva Bible of 1560, Bishop's Bible of 1568, the King James of 1611, the Revised Version of 1885 and the American Standard Version in 1901 and the New World Translation of the Holy scriptures. The Revised Standard Version (1952) was the first mainline English translation to not use Jehovah in the main text. Nor does it tranliterate alleluia [sometimes 'Hallelujah'] in any of the four occurrences found in many English translations [in the 19th chapter of Revelation].
1611: éÀäÉåÈä is translated IEHOVAH ("JEHOVAH" from at least the 17th century on) in all uppercase in four places in the King James Bible of 1611 A.D.(Exodus 6:3, Psalm 83:18, Isaiah 12:2, Isaiah 26:4), and three times in placenames (e.g. Jehovah-jireh). Elsewhere in the King James Bible it is rendered as GOD or LORD and

The point is, we all make wrong interpretations sometimes, correct? No one knows the whole truth. Here's a scripture I found, Daniel 10: 21- However, I shall tell you the things noted down in the writing of truth, and there is no one holding strongly with me in these things but Michael, the prince of YOU people.
Daniel 12: 1- And during that time Michael will stand up, the great prince who is standing in behalf of the sons of your people. And there will certainly occur a time of distress such as has not been made to occur since that time. And during that time your people will escape, everyone who is found written down in the book. (Note the words "during that time Michael will stand up" and "the great prince". Is he the one that sits at God's right hand? Also the name or title Archangel Michael, it must be a very high position if you think about it)
Matthew 22:44 – Jehovah said to my Lord: Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies beneath your feet.
Revelation 17:14 – These will battle with the Lamb, but, because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, the Lamb will conquer them. Also, those called and chosen and faithful with him will do so. (note the word Lamb, who is the Lamb, answer that question, and who will the Lamb be conquering in battle?)
Revelation 19:13,14 – and he is arrayed with an outer garment sprinkled with blood, and the name he is called is The Word of God. Also, the armies that were in heaven were following him on white horses, and they were clothed in white, clean, fine linen. ("following him on white horses... seems to me like he is leading them don't you think?)
Revelation 19: 16 And upon his thigh, he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords. (Jesus Christ is known as having that title)
Jesus Christ has many names or titles
Isaiah 9:6 – For there has been a child born to us, there has been a son given to us; and the princely rule will come to be upon his shoulder. And his name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
I am just trying to make sense of it too, yet I think I will not get to grasp everything that's in The Bible. So let's not pinpoint people's mistakes. I am new to the Jehovah Witnesses, I read on my own and this is what I think. If what I think is not correct, I hope Jehovah will correct me then. Because we all find The Bible difficult to understand, yet we try at least. I do not want to mislead anyone!
Some people feel that they have the truth, yet the truth will be revealed through their actions. Whether they are genuine worshipers of Jehovah God or not. Some people are breaking commandment/s worshiping statues Exodus 20:4 - You must not make yourself a carved image or a form like anything that is in the heavens above or that is on the earth underneath or that is in the waters under the earth. You must not be induced to serve them, because I Jehovah your God am a God exacting exclusive devotion. (also why do people treat others like Pope's, Priest like they are of a high position. Who appointed them over the people. They are human beings, just like everyone else).
Let the truth be known to the nations, I say, and let no human be mislead from the truth. If you really wanted to know the truth search The Scriptures yourself, if someone's teachings does not make sense continue to ask questions until you find the answers.
