Context blows sometimes. People think it is the cat's meow of biblical studies. It isn't. Sometimes it is crucial to hear a biblical verse entirely on its own, entirely apart from everything that was said before and afterwords. To ignore the historical and the grammatical, the mystical and the narrative...and by gosh to ignore what the author was intending, to simply listen to the verse, acknowledging that it is the ineffable Word of God.

Amen! This way we will surely be able to make the Bible say whatever we want it to!

Earlier I warned you to start posting under your real name. Now I can see that, even if you do, your only purpose here is to spam my posts with pseudo-patronising. It isn't even substantial mockery. See ya later kiddo.
