Affected Teaching
Here we have another attack on the Lord Jesus Christ. The modern versions leave off the phrase “our Lord.” (Jude 1:4 KJV) For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. The phrase “our Lord” in reference to the Lord Jesus Christ is used 80 times in the New Testament. Jude 4 gives a usage of the phrase “our Lord” and is a good description of those who deny the Lord Jesus Christ, like the modern version editors. He is called “our Lord” because it was He who died for His people and therefore has earned the right to be called “our Lord.” The word “our” is in the genitive case which means not only do we belong to Christ, but He also belongs to us. (John 10:14 KJV) I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. It is amazing how the modern versions claim to be God’s Word and do everything they can to attack the Son of God.
