Quoting the Bible

I find it interesting that oft times when the Bible is quoted, it is to convince someone else how to behave.  Some examples follow.  There are many many more scriptures you can pull from the Bible to tell someone what to do or not to do.

– Wives are told to submit to their husbands

– Children are told to honor their parents

 

– Sins of the fathers are passed on three generations

If you read the full scripture, you will see that:

– Husbands are to love their wives as Christ loved the church, even to the point of death

– Parents are to not provoke their children

– The righteous are blessed to the thousandth generation

Why is it so important to  get someone else to do something? The only person you have any control over is your own self.

What would happen if Bible believers would love and extend grace to everyone?
