Revisiting the idea that the word of truth needs to be measured and fit together is neither tiring nor monotonous. Popular as rightly dividing among people who have neither interest nor ability to work with the Biblical text, the actual work is missing in action.
There are thousands of poorly translated Bible expressions which lead to disastrous interpretations. There are scores of popular sayings that pollute the word-working environment which we have thought were Christ-centered.
Investigating those expressions closely from the source and with Christ as the axis is still our best shield against silly slogans and shallow beliefs.
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
Peter got it right when he said to Yeshua “Where can we go? You have the words of life“. He would be a mega hypocrite if he was thinking that some other person also had the words of life. What would it make us if we say what Peter said and keep a convenient back up or alternate source handy?
And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.
To propose that our Lord had a scroll in his hand when he uttered these words is evidence that the influence of demonic hypnosis is more important than biblical fact. Who else would turn you down a useless sideroad?
