Monkey See, Monkey Do

During my baptismal class, the pastor spent the time showing several verse-jumps through the bible. Mark verse x in book X, make a margins note to jump to the first half of verse Y in book y, then make a jump to the second half of verse z in book Z. Rinse and repeat 15 times and find the proof for fundamental belief 1. Repeat 26 times to gather them all. Add the observation that this is the divinely inspired method for bible study, because Ellen White wrote that ‘a little here, a little there’ is how it should be done.


…and you get a bunch of statements OUT OF CONTEXT. Reading the Bible this way, you can make it say whatever you want.
