Die to Live!
Of all the literary pieces that have existed all across time, there is none that has received as much attack and ridicule as the Bible. And in every time that the Bible has been abused, it was taken out of context.
Many atheists, liberalists and even Christians have claimed that there are parts of the Bible that are obsolete, redundant or flawed. However, that is far from the truth because it is complete and perfect in every way. The only reason why people find flaws is because it is taken out of context.
The saddest part of this all is that it’s not just non-Christians that use the Bible out of context, but many believers have also become guilty of taking some scriptures in the Bible out of the original context. Here are just a few of the many popular scriptures that are taken with the wrong context.

What does it take to change? No, I don’t mean to world, I mean you!
Change is very hard. Most change efforts fail. We are Christians (Jesus followers) we MUST change. How so? II Corinthians 5:17. He promises to make us into new creatures–to make all things new inside us. Change is still so very hard.
How do I change?
Change is hard and Jesus knew it would be. Yes, He promised to make all things new inside of us but that verse did not say it would be easy.
How do we do it?
