Use Proper Judgment

It takes good judgment to study the Bible well.

Do not judge a book by its cover. King James did not translate a single word of the King James Bible.

Do not judge a book by its title. Most Bibles have Paul’s name in the title of Hebrews, but it just ain’t so.

Do not judge a book by it’s place in the table of contents. The New Testament does not begin with Matthew. The Old Testament does not begin with Genesis. We are in neither testament.

Do not judge a book by the commentators notes. Nobody knows for sure when certain books were written, and all fail to rightly divide.

Do not judge a book by its chapter and verse divisions. They were added much later.

Do judge a book by reading the inspired words in it and making a determination about who is speaking, to whom they are speaking, and whether the audience is the church, the Body of Christ.

For His glory,

Justin “here comes the judge” Johnson
