Affected Teaching
Last week we saw a verse which played down the relationship between the Lord Jesus Christ and His Father. This week’s verse shows how the relationship between the Lord Jesus Christ and His children are downgraded. In the text the word “hmwn” (hê mô n) is a personal pronoun in the Genitive case which means that the child of God can legitimately claim the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. However, the modern versions once again distance that relationship as if we are introducing Christ as “the” Savior instead of “our” Savior. The modern versions tend to distance relationships whether between God and the Lord Jesus Christ or the Lord Jesus Christ and His children. This is why the modern versions stink, because they take an eternal relationship and distance it. This is why the King James Bible is superior because it presents the relationships in their proper standing and does not make any attempt to separate.
