Many people today, inside and outside the church, have become focused on self. They are all about them and what they can do. They often don’t know or care what God has done for them. Those who aren’t professing Christians can’t see that their very life is a gift from God. Sadly, this affects the gospel. When people don’t understand what God has done for them or why He did it, is cheapens the gospel and lessens the effect the good news can have in a person’s life. When pastors don’t preach the true gospel, the people listening don’t receive what they need to hear to help them understand who God is and what He’s done for them.

A new endeavor and I need YOUR help!

I would like to start posting examples of “twisted scripture” here on the At Ease Tees blog. I don’t want this to be a bashing session against pastors or preachers. Instead, I want to show readers examples of scriptures that people are twisting to make them say what they want. You can also post something here that you’re not really sure is twisted and hopefully we’ll be able to come to some sort of answer. I’m not looking for general things like “homosexuality is ok and here’s why” or “the Bible says that you should have an overflowing blessing and here’s the proof”…I’m looking for specific things that have been preached or taught over the last week. I would like them to be from your local churches instead of the televangelists on TV. If I get enough, I’ll do it every week.

 I will have a certain format for the submissions though. If you’re going to send something in, here’s how I want it to look:

 The subject of the email needs to contain the words TWISTED SCRIPTURE in all caps. This will help me flag it if it gets sent to junk mail. In the body of the mail here’s what I’m looking for:

 Premise: write a short explanation of what the pastor/preacher/priest/teacher was trying to say.

Scripture(s) Twisted: List the scriptures here used to support the premise above.

Why this should be considered twisted scripture: Give a concise but adequate explanation of why you believe this is twisted scripture and what the verse(s) really mean.

 I’ll post some twisted scripture each week on Tuesday (the exact number will depend on how many I get sent), and would love to have some discussion as to the validity of the premise and the amount of twisting that has taken place.

To email a TWISTED SCRIPTURE go the the At Ease Tees homepage and click on the link that says contact us (it’s right above the section thumbnails).

 As I said above, this isn’t so that we can bash pastors or preachers. To that effect, please leave the names of those involved out. All I want to do is to start discussing how the Word of God is being used and how to get back to a biblical viewpoint.

I’m looking forward to some interesting discussions!
