KEEP IT IN CONTEXT
We all have Scripture verses which we know better than others, or which are well known by a community. But, sometimes, we become so familiar with these verses that we may use them in a way in which they were not originally intended. When I was at theological college a number of our lecturers use to say “a text, out of context, is a pretext”. The purpose of this ten part series is to consider some very well-known verses which we may, because they are so familiar, be taking out of context.
Part 1 – I Will Forgive and Heal
2 Chronicles 7:14
Part 2 – Train A Child And Wait For Grace
Part 3 – My Plans Are Not For Money
Part 4 – Does God Hate Divorce?
Part 5 – Don’t Judge, But Don’t Be Naïve
Part 6 – Discipline Happens Where Two Or Three Gather
Part 7 – Can I Do Everything?
Part 8 – Knocking On Which Door?
