Déjà vu all over again!

One thing that is continually being made clear is how often people will take a brief excerpt of scripture, interpret it, and base their theological understanding on their interpretation of that brief excerpt.

Will some people ever recognise that scripture is not a collection of isolated sound-bites of truth that can be applied according to whim?
Will they ever recognise that we need all of scripture and we need to look at the overall picture instead of trying to know God through isolated verses?

Yes, this is another rant about context.

Blindness to context is one of the major factors contributing to false doctrine and false teaching in the church today.
