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.
