Teach All Nations

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:Mathew 28:19.


There are times when I learn from my readers. One of them recently asked, "Why do all of the new versions say "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations", whereas the King James Bible says, Go ye therefore, and teach all nations.?" Good questions make for good learning experiences.

Whether or not I teach people is my decision. I take Matthew 28:19 as a command to teach all nations. Whether or not they become disciples is their decision. No one is to be compelled to become a disciple. If I had a command to make them disciples such as the new versions say, I would send armies throughout the world and force people to convert at the point of a sword. It is no longer their choice, I am ordered to make them disciples.

Which version you use may not make any difference. What version you act upon will make all the difference in the world.
