We Can't Serve Up Scripture Like Chicken Nuggets. We Must Keep Passages in Context

Don't ignore parts of Bible, Wendy's pieces parts, McDonalds chicken nuggets, Bible must be taken as whole
Taking Scriptures out of context distorts the truth...

Years ago, a Wendy’s commercial humorously called the meat in McDonald’s chicken nuggets “pieces parts.” That’s because McNuggets were made of bits and pieces of chicken pressed together "out of the context" of the whole chicken

Sometimes we formulate our beliefs with “pieces parts” of the Bible. In fact, most Bible errors come from cutting one or two verses out of context and pressing them together to form a half truth.

Bible verses are not meant to stand alone. Nor can we use one verse and exclude another. That's one reason Scripture commands us to:

"Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth." 2 Timothy 2:15, Amplified Bible

Every single verse in the Bible is true, but not every verse contains complete truth.

The best way to illustrate this is to give you an example. And that’s what I’ve done in the first Bite-Size Bible study—a new site I’ve started. 

Bite Size Bible Study features studies for people who "don’t want to bite off more than they can chew." 
  • No extra homework and no books to buy
  • Full text of Scriptures in each study
  • Do them on your iphone or download and take your time 
Why not click BITE SIZE and do this first study.  See for yourself how very different the message can be if we take one or two verses out of the context of the whole. And if you think this kind of bite-size study is something you'd like to do weekly, sign up for a free subscription.

  1. You are right, we cannot pick and choose what we like and don't like in the Bible and choose to live our truths as we see fit based on what we want it to say instead of the context of what it really says.

    By the way, the "Making Your Home Sing Monday" linky party is now live and ready for you to link up to today! ;)
