Why A “Very Dangerous” Bible Commentary?

Understanding What This Is All About

This Bible Commentary is very dangerous for me because I feel compelled to bring my life in line with whatever I write. These words cause me to look more deeply into my heart. These words challenge me to make my words and actions more fully reflect my heart. This is my exercise in writing what I believe and how my beliefs should determine my actions.

You should not feel this same compulsion. None of this is written from the standpoint of “you must believe this”or “you must do this.” We are each responsible for our beliefs and actions, and so nothing that I write here should be taken as my saying to you, “This is the way. Walk in it.” [1]

Yet I would not be much of a writer if I did not speak with a certain amount of conviction, and you would become weary of an endless repetition of “in my opinion” and “it seems to me” and “to me.”

In no way do I intend “Very Dangerous” to mean anything close to hacking myself or anyone else to pieces with God’s Word. To do so would be a wrong interpretation of the two-edged sword metaphor. [2]

Thanks For Reading,

Footnotes and other not necessarily important items…

[1] Isaiah 30:21 These words should be reserved for God, though perhaps something that you read here will be in accord with what He has been telling you already.

[2] Hebrews 4:12 There are some who believe if they assault someone with scripture, it will cause them to repent and turn to God. This type of attack rarely glorifies God by producing a changed life. The only real “fruit” (if you can call it that) is a heightened sense of self-righteousness. “I told them, so if they burn in Hell forever, it’s their own fault.” (I am speaking from personal experience as one who has been hacked and also done the hacking.)

  1. Glad you are being honest in your writing. I don’t think its so dangerous to be honest, just some Christians don’t like the truth of the gospel because it exposes their own faults and religious thinking.

    1. Thanks so much. I really appreciate that. Right now in our Adult Forum at church we are looking at “The Politics Of God,” and this has really caused me to examine my own thinking and what I need to do in order to see things as God sees them. Thanks again for reading and commenting, and I hope you’ll visit back again.
