Committed to Context

book-1209805_960_720

This is a category that will be dedicated to verses often taken out of context and misapplied. It seems that one pastor will hear a verse used a certain way, and then he’ll preach it that way, and so on and so forth until it is an accepted fact among that following that that is the correct interpretation. God draws attention in Acts to the Bereans, chapter 17, who found it easier to believe and have faith because they searched the Scriptures to back up what was being taught. Believing what isn’t actually taught in Scripture will only bring confusion and lack of faith. That is why this is so important. Only the actual truth of God’s word can change and grow us; and only what is true will resonate and convict us of our sin.
