My post in queue.

2 Peter 1:1
"As we do so we also notice that this variant seems to fall under the category of principle four since the variation does not impact the concept conveyed. ... A quick survey of the versions finds that none duplicate the pronoun whatever text they might have used"

2 Peter 1:1 (AV)
Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:

There is an impact. If you accept the two pronouns (whether you translate to English with one or two) you cannot accurately translate with what we can call the Granville Sharp change the AV identity error. Missing the real sense of the verse in order to declare Jesus is God. As done in the Geneva but not the AV.
