Misquoted Verses
misquoted verses – all days were written before there were any – Psalms 139:16 is probably about fetology, not about predestination.

misquoted verses – one day is like a thousand years – The “God is eternal” interpretation of 2 Peter 3:8 does not make sense in context.

misquoted verses – the eyes of the Lord – The “eyes of the Lord” are very probably angels.

misquoted verses – the potter and the clay – The parable of the potter and the clay is about informing people that God changes based on the actions of people.

misquoted verses – all things work together for good – This verse is not about happy outcomes to all tragedies, but a Christian hope in Christ.

misquoted verses – God does not change – Malachi 3:6 does not mean God is immutable. The immediate context is God changing.

misquoted verses – false humility – False humility means abstinence from physical pleasure.

misquoted verses – vegetarians are weak and wine makes people stumble – Romans 14 is about social issues surrounding meat, not the act of eating meat versus vegetarianism.

misquoted verses – the widows mite – Jesus’ illustration of the widow’s mite was against tithing, not an encouragement to tithe.

misquoted verses – head coverings – 1 Corinthians 11 is probably about hair length and not hats.

misquoted verses – baptism of fire – The “baptism of fire” was killing the wicked, not Pentecost.

Christian Cliches
all sins are equal – All sins are not, in fact, equal. Different sins have different weights. Some people are judged harsher for the same sin based on who they are.

do not judge – Not only are Christians commanded to judge, but we need to judge now in order to one day judge the angels.

taking things by faith – This is a excuse for people to reject the Bible in favor of their own personal theology.

God is above logic – God cannot possibly be “above” logic. Logic is not a “thing” but an axiom.
