I apologize for the delay in responding. We have been flooded with correspondence lately, and it has taken some time to catch up.
You have asked two questions with which I am not entirely familiar:
I had never noticed that the KJV and NKJV inserts an extra phrase in Romans 8:1
, which the other versions do not, and I am certainly not familiar with the textual case to argue for one or the other. Regardless, I do not see how the phrase affects any point of doctrine. Maybe I have not studied it closely? I have never seen someone make a unique case based on one version or the other.
True, one group is in error: Either, someone deleted or someone added. However, as a reader and student (not a translator), I am at peace with such discrepancies because they seem minor and irrelevant. Of course, you are free to enlighten me as to why this one is significant. ... I guess I am somewhat at a loss in trying to understand your exact point, because I have not encountered this before now.
About, the Sabbath, Sunday, and naming conventions, I am again not sure to your point. Whether some sect satisfies the definition of "cult" as defined by man is irrelevant to me. All that matters to me is whether or not we are satisfying God. Again, the label for the first day of the week, call it "Sunday" or anything else, is of little significance. I believe the key is that we worship Jesus on the first day of the week as proscribed in the Bible, regardless of what we name the day (Acts 20:7
If you are concerned that we worship God on the last day, the Sabbath, instead of the first, then I would point you to the following discussion, lecture, and charts:
I look forward to your clarification on these points.
May God help us to have a sincere love of the truth,
