The Misuse of Words “All”, “Every”, Whosoever &c.

The Misuse of Words “All”, “Every”, Whosoever &c.

Great stress is placed by preachers upon the words, “all”, “every” and “whosoever” in verses such as, “Go ye into all the world”, “Preach the Gospel to every creature” and so on. These present a false application of Scripture simply because such words and phrases are wrongly used. This misuse of these words has to be considered.

This false application contradicts Jesus’ statement and instruction to His disciples:

Matt. 15:24, “But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel”, and

Matt. 10:6 “Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel”

Because of this contradiction we need to find out why this appears to be so, and why the popular interpretation about going to all races contradicts this statement and this command of Jesus
