Biblical Language Without a Biblical Spirit

Beware of those who quote the Bible but do not have the Bible’s spirit.

The Bible’s spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Not everyone who uses biblical language is of this spirit.  You know this. 

Do not listen to those who speak Scripture with anger, bitterness, strife, malice, or any other ungodly spirit.

Biblical language without a biblical spirit is as a noisy bell or clanging cymbal.  God is love.

Whenever you refer to the Bible, be sure you are doing so in God’s spirit.

The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in terms familiar to those who read the Bible. For a list of verses relevant to this post, see this post on related blog.
