Is it possible to read this as a Bible?

As the documents making up that book have been translated and mistranslated so many times, one more translation isn't going to make any difference to the not so good book!

I wouldn't trust anything from the JW's, but read the critical reviews for yourself and make up your own mind:

It is as possible to read it as a bible as it is read any bible like that since it contains the sasme story, and teaches the same things as any other,

It major difference between it, and the vast majority of other translations is that it is one of only two which are as honestly translated as to attempt to put God's holy and unique name, Jehovah back where it belongs.

The other is the American Standard, which I use almost exclusively on here.

The bible, any bible, should be read as it it, history book, some of which was written hundreds, even thousands of years before it was due to happen.

It is both an invitation to get to understand, and know, both our Creator God, Jehovah, and his son, who came to earth to become the Christ.

Simple as that really.

You have even disfellowshipped by the JW. As an ex-member do you accept their position.

1. those that continue to believe Watchtower doctrine are told that whilst disfellowshipped they are condemned to everlasting destruction.(3)
2. those who become unbelievers, with no intention of returning to the Watchtower Society, realise they are unlikely to freely associate with Witness family and friends for the remainder of their lives.
3. The punishment applies forever, or until the Watchtower Society formally reinstates the person. It is considered irrelevant whether the person no longer practices the wrongdoing they were disfellowshipped for.

Since you have not been reinstated can we assume all of the above applies to you.

It doesn't pay to assume anything, especially when working from a base of error as you are.

Your forest premise is absolutely wrong.

Your second is poorly worded, but close to to the truth.

Your third is in accurate also.

The elders are supposed to check on a disfellowshipped person at least once a year to ask if they wish to return, and to give them what scriptural advice is appropriate. It is then up to him, or her, to attend the meetings regularly until the elders feel it is right to reinstate him.

It doesn't always work out like that because not all bodies of elders are as consciencious as they should be. They are only human after all and sometimes personal clashes come into play, even though they shouldn't. But that is what is supposed to be done.

That isn't a Watchtower site, it is an apostate site misleading those who read it.

The only JW sites are:

http://www.jw.org...
http://tv.jw.org...
http://wol.jw.org...

If you want to know the reality, look on one of those. for instance:

http://wol.jw.org...

There you will find the real truth, not the lies spread by Apostates.
