Ummm….. are you sure that’s a good text?

Justin Taylor points out this church website has an interesting scriptural tagline. The site uses Luke 4:7 as a moto under the churches title. Now as Justin Taylor asks “anyone see a problem?”

If you’re not sure – here is a hint – look up the passage here
and ask yourself who is speaking. I guess it all goes to show how important it is to read the Bible responsibly.

Highly recomended is “How to Read the Bible for all it’s worth” by Gordon Fee and Douglas Stewart. I recently found a copy on sale in a Christian Bookshop for 50p! I was unable to bring myslef to leave such a fine book mouldering on the remainder shelf so I bought it and I now have a spare copy – so if you want one – and you know me, first come first served and all that!
