I am sitting here with my morning coffee, Verona Starbucks with a splash of french vanilla creamer, listening to my kiddos in the backgrounds while doing my Lay Minister studies. In my studies I came across this bullet point below and realized this has been a subject of conversation all around me lately.
What scripture(s) do you think you or others use out of context with when looking at other passages in the Bible? Or maybe you don’t think this happens at all? I would love to hear your thoughts and even what is in your cup this morning.
**Interpret a passage in the light of all other Scripture. Do not use an
obscure passage to disprove one with clear and obvious meaning, and
do not interpret a passage in such a way as to make it deny what we
know to be true of God from other scripture. For example, the
interpretation of 1 Tim. 2:15 must be in light of John 3:16.
