Title: Twisting Scripture
Series: Handle With Care
Author: Randy Tomko

What is our faith built on…shifting sand or the solid rock of Biblical truth?

Do the changing winds of the world’s trends sweep our thinking away from Christ leaving us confused, troubled, and weary?

Do we allow ourselves to be challenged by the word of God so that our lives can be set on His firm foundation? Or do we twist scripture to try to make it be what we think we want it to be…

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine.Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist,discharge all the duties of your ministry.

2 Timothy 4:1-5 (NIV)
