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.

"There are times when I learn from my readers."

how I like this sentence. A lot of people speaking and teaching about God, but nobody spoke with him. I remember now "be not ye called Rabbi...".

Nobody is master of nobody, just one is who teaches. And this: "Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child...", humbleness. In any moment you can learn from anyone if you are open to do so.

King James version is special. He chose charity where everybody chose love:

"And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity". Pure power in these words. Real charity is pure love. Don't judge, don't hurt, give everything, don't avoid to do…
