Danger of Picking & Choosing from the Bible

T. H. L. Parker’s challenge two decades ago of the Church of England, of which he was a part, is relevant to us today.

“What wonder that a church which picks and chooses what it wants out of the Bible should become confused in its theology, flabby in its morals, and with little to state but the worldly obvious- the day after worldly liberals have stated it more convincingly?” (from the introduction to Calvin’s Preaching).

This is a powerful reminder of our need to preach the whole counsel of God and to let the Scriptures shape all else.
