Twisting the Bible Out of Context

It is all too easy to allow our cultural context to blind us to the magnificent – if sometimes hard-to-swallow – truths of Scripture. Join us as we delve into some popular misunderstandings about what the Bible has to say and what Christianity is all about. We will tackle some difficult and controversial topics, but always with both eyes fixed on what the Bible actually says.

2 Chronicles: 7:11-18
Often, American Christians apply the great covenant promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14 to the USA. But that isn’t what the Bible is saying. America is not in a covenant relationship with God – but the Church IS. God’s covenant promises in Scripture are trustworthy but understanding where they apply is key. If you are in Christ, you are in the deepest covenant with God that exists.

September 6 | Your Identity
Romans 8:28-30
Our culture today tells us to be true to ourselves. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that in God’s kingdom; the Gospel calls us to be conformed not to ourselves, but to the image of Jesus Christ. Rather than trying to earn our identity and be accepted by the world around us, we should receive the identity that has been given to us in and through the Gospel which calls us sons and daughters of God.

September 13 | Count it all joy
James 1:2-4
Our highly spiritual culture tends to understand God and religion as “therapeutic.” Meaning, “God/religion will help me feel good.” On the contrary, the Gospel presents us with a suffering Savior who calls us to also take up our crosses and follow Him. God is at work through your pain and suffering to conform you into the image of Jesus.

September 20 | Mission to the Margins
Luke 6:20-26
Many wrongly assume that social justice is a distraction from the “real work” of the Gospel. But Jesus was continually caring for those in the margins of society. The Gospel has strong implications for how we treat socially marginalized people. Justice is a Gospel issue, and Christians are commissioned to be agents of God’s reconciliation in the world.
