The Bible is a sharp, double-edged sword — able to piece the heart. However, when portions of the Bible are used in the wrong context, it’s like trying to fight with the butt of the weapon instead of the blade. It’s just not effective.His verses are Phil 4:13; Jer 29:11; Matt 18:20; Rom 8:28; and Prov 29:18.
Over my years in ministry and as an ongoing student of the Bible, I’ve come across many biblical misquotes, misunderstandings and flat-out misuses.
However, if I’m honest, many of these have come from my own lips. I confess: I’ve been guilty of abusing passages, ignoring context and, even at times, stretching the meaning for my own teaching needs, but I’m seeking to reform my loose ways in favor of something much more beneficial — the original interpretation.
My verses are likely similar, and I list them below. If you are curious as to why I suggest these, just ask.
Matthew 25:46. Genesis 1:1 (well, both creation accounts, but okay). 1 Timothy 2:12. Proverbs 26:4. Colossians 1:20.
