I recently read an article about "5 verses that you need to stop misusing" (you can find it here). I agree with the basic premise of the article that we shouldn't use the bible to justify our own decision.
However, It got me thinking how often do we actually apply the Bible to our everyday lives? (and how often do we or should we read the bible all the way through). I believe that "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,"(2 Timothy 3:16 NIV). My concern is that often we Christians ( particularly the very lucky western Christians in places like Australia) don't rely enough on scripture to help us maneuver through our lives, we rely on our dim memories of hearing someone that said "that the bible says ...." rather than our own experience of the scripture itself.
So while I agree with the articles intent that we should not misuse the Bible, I advocate using IT regularly, often and wholeheartedly to deal with everything that the world throws at us. Please for the sake of the Kingdom READ YOUR BIBLES. (and Pray but that is a whole other post).
