We’re cautioned against consuming the contents of our Bible, cafeteria style, meaning selecting only our favorite morsels and disregarding the rest. While I don’t disagree with that admonition, the truly essential ingredient in scripture is Christ’s message of hope, faith and charity. If taken outside the context of Christ’s message of love, many scriptures are easily misconstrued. There are far too many people in the world today who’ve been led to believe that being gut-wrenchingly conservative is the same thing as following the Savior.  Suffice it to say, I disagree.  If your actions don’t show compassion and mercy, best dust off your Bible, because you’re not following Christ.
