misunderstanding. Wisdom must be exercised: although some 'out of context' verses reveal a stand-alone truth, others require a consideration of their context and the speaker’s or writer’s intent in order to be properly interpreted and applied. We must continually gauge how does the interpretation line-up with the surrounding verses and the overall teaching of the Bible. This analysing gives a better perspective to arrive at the correct meaning; not violated by an individual scripture being used to support a particular viewpoint or doctrine.
Does this agree with the overall teaching of the Bible?
a false meaning. Whenever we read or hear someone using a single verse in isolation, it’s good to bring that verse back into its original fuller passage to see if it still fits with its designated interpretation.
The OT promises were generally given to specific people at specific times, so they have limited application today, although we can learn valuable insights from them as to how we should live and the lifestyle that is acceptable to God. False teaching arises because of incorrect discernment and emphasis that nullifies or contradicts what is actually written and meant.
