Over-Identifying the Bible with Jesus
Jesus preaches, “My sheep hear my voice!” Two sheep with headphones plugged into a Bible, one says, “What’s he saying?”
OVER-IDENTIFYING THE BIBLE WITH JESUS
I’ve shared this old cartoon before and aroused the anger of those who totally equate Jesus with the “Word”. To them the Bible IS Jesus. I know because I was there.
But, when we over-identify Jesus with our interpretation of the Bible, this is what happens.
You can see it all the time on my posts on all my platforms where mean people use the Bible to exact their cruelty on others.
They do the exact opposite of what anyone with any knowledge of Jesus would expect of him.
They don’t hear the voice of Jesus at all, but rather the Bible interpreted through their own warped voices.
