Best dust off your Bible

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 can be easily misconstrued. There are far too many people in the world today who’ve been led to believe that being gut-wrenchingly conservative is essentially the same thing as following the Savior. Suffice it to say, I respectfully disagree. In my humble opinion, if your actions don’t show Christ’s compassion and mercy, best dust off your Bible, because you’re not following Christ. SC
