Things the Bible Never Said

How good and pleasant it is when brothers live apart in insistence upon their own interpretation! – not in Psalm 133:1 anyway.

May they be brought to complete perfection in their understanding of and obedience to scripture, to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. – not quite the way John 17:23 reads.

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of hermeneutical distinctiveness among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus. – can’t find that in Romans 15:5; can you?

Make every effort to keep the separateness and apartness of the Spirit through the bond of peace. – could Ephesians 4:3 really mean that?

… until we all reach exclusive correctness in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. – perhaps not the intent of Ephesians 4:13, huh?

Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which separates the righteous from the unrighteous in perfect uniformity of doctrine. – hardly the right translation from the Greek of Colossians 3:14, is it?

  1. My favorite part of the Third Day concert was when he called the audience “the church”. How simple, how un-biased….believers are “the church!”AMEN!
