Several of the most popular doctrines or teachings
in the "Christian" world today were arrived at by
"scrabble board theology".
They take a hand full of letters, or verses, and arrange
them in the order they want and -BEHOLD - a doctrine
that is very pleasing to themselves and every one else.
Unfortunately, just because these "proof texts" come
out of the Bible, it does not make it a Bible truth.
How do we know what is right then?
I am glad you ask that question. It's very simple. Pull the
old Berean trick on them. It has worked for several thousand
"Now these were more noble-minded than those in
Thessalonica, for they receive the word with great
eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see
whether these things were so."
(Acts 17:11 NASB)
There you have it. Just three simple steps.
1. Pick up your Bible and put it in your hands.
2. Read it.
3. Leave it in the order God put it.
