The Devil's Copy of the Bible
Satan is steeped in the Scriptures. In the famous temptation account, the devil attempts to get Jesus to jump from the temple top to the ground below. Hey, it happens. And God sees that. Satan would have you believe this verse is about trusting in yourself, harnessing your inward power, chasing your dreams--all the mumbo jumbo of self-help spirituality. We could go on and on. Avoid Twitterizing the Scriptures.
C ontext is important. Without context, words are easily manipulated to mean whatever you want them to mean. This is one of the major problems with biblical proof-texting. You can even make the Bible come across as anti-Jesus and pro-Satan. For example, did you know that Jesus said this:.
The serpent said to the woman, "You surely will not die! But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. This is the one on whom seed was sown beside the road. But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.
