Affected Teaching
If there is one thing that God deals in, it is specifics. Man deals in the nebulous. The two words which are omitted are very important because they specifically state who the Lord Jesus Christ died for. He died only for His people. (Mat 1:21 KJV) And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. The Matthew verse states that Jesus came to save “His” people from their sins. Who are His people? Those whom He has saved. The modern versions just state that Jesus was sacrificed but the reason for His sacrifice is open for interpretation by anyone and any system. Christ died for His Elect chosen from the foundation of the world. (Eph 1:4 KJV) According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: The modern versions leave Christ’s sacrifice without reason and therefore many believe they are saved when they are not. Once again the King James Bible does not leave us without the proper understanding of the Atonement of Christ.
