Seven Commonly Misquoted/Misused Bible Verses

Seven Commonly Misquoted/Misused Bible Verses
The Bible is a double-edged sword and it can pierce the heart. However, when stripped of its context and mangled and twisted in order to apply to a particular situation or person, the blade becomes dull and ineffective. As a growing student of the Bible, I’ve quickly come to realize that man of the passages I’ve oft quoted in the past were wrongly deprived of their context as I regurgitated the nuggets of Holy writ handed down to me by church leaders and friends. We Christians read (and quote) Scripture in tiny, artificial fragments all the time. And by doing so, do we alter the meaning without even realizing it. I invite you to comment below on these verses and add a few you might agree fit this criteria or to rebut my claims. Read More at 



Misquoted Bible verses.
They are many, and they are common.
Today's verse "with his stripes we are healed." from Isaiah 53:5.
Faith healers have used these words, out of context, and applied them to our temporal physical afflictions. most misquoted scriptures
Isaiah 53 is a chapter concerning God's suffering servant that has come to suffer and pay for the inequities, transgressions, and sins of His people. It is the perfect prophetic picture of Christ on the cross. Read the verse in context.

money is the root of all evil meaning
Isa 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. ~ KJV
Reading all of Isaiah chapter 52 and 53 will help in your understanding. But it is of first importance to let the Bible interpret the Bible. Let's look at Peter's Spirit inspired understanding of this verse. cleanliness is next to godliness bible verse
1Pe 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. example of bible verses and explanation
In short, this passage has absolutely nothing to do with the healing of your temporal headache, or ailments. It has only to do with the deliverance/healing of the eternal consequences of your sin, and your deliverance from sin.
Repent and believe.
Have a blessed day. bible verses about missing someone

Kathryn Chambless Paul I have to disagree. I was healed of a heart murmur when someone prayed that very verse over me. That was 15 years ago.

Paula Meiners Yingst Thank you, Paul. I've suffered with fibromyalgia since January 1994, and though I know well-meaning people are just trying to help me -- and make themselves feel better in the process -- I have come to the realization that Scripture is often misunderstood, taken out of context, and used to say (without sayin'), "Your faith isn't strong enough or you WOULD be healed.... JUST BELIEVE!" Over the past two decades, my Father has taught me valuable lessons that I would never have discovered without going through suffering. I've connected with people I would never have known BECAUSE OF my journey with chronic illness. So, I absolutely agree with your controversial bible verses new testament conclusion. May God continue to use your writing gift to help people reach truth and balance in their understanding of God's Word. <3 p="">Like · Reply · 1 · October 11, 2016 at 8:45am

Paul Cox I also think that one of the biggest dangerous of relying on anecdotal stories, is that everyone has one. Mormons, Muslims, Jehovah's Witnesses, Hari krishnas, and every other religious sect claim the same deliverance from the same maladies that are obviously not the work of Our Risen Christ.

Even Alcoholics Anonymous, which used to be a christian-based organization, now prescribes to their members the ability to choose their own higher power. And if you are the one that dictates what your higher power is, you still have no power higher than yourself. I have heard people claim they were healed by their guitar.
