July 14, 2019 – Pastor Barry Clair continues the series “Don’t get it Twisted” with the message “Not More Than I Can Bear”
We are in the middle of a series called ‘Don’t get it Twisted.’ We’re looking at certain passages of the Bible that we twist to make them fit with our preconceived theories, or our misinformed opinions. Sometimes we, especially in our culture today because we are so filled with pride, even preachers, we think we are smarter than the Bible. That we can pick-and-choose the verses to apply to our lives, and other verses we can say, “Well, that’s not relevant anymore.” And certainly, we need to interpret the Scriptures in reliable, trustworthy ways.
One of the ways that Scripture gets twisted is by the use of the term called “Proof-texting.”
