scripture and the laudromat

Ok I get some stick, so can anyone advise me on their understanding of scripture and how many times it went through the wash before it arrived at their doorstep.

Perhaps I am missing something, is there one right for the roman, another for the greek and another for the ana baptist, and then etc?

I usually wash with Biological detergent on a minimum of 60 degrees.  All this 'Eco' 'quick wash' at low temperatures does nothing to get rid of 'germs'.

Can you please define what you mean by scripture. ie Are you referring to the extant manuscripts ?

The stuff that arrived at your doorstep, I reckon you know the answer to that better than me.

I think it's true that scriptures which have been through multiple translations can become distorted. Equally, we should never forget the context in which it was written, and be prepared to acknowledge that our reading is influenced by the context in which we find ourselves.
Powwow

Bna,
Interesting that you find scripture so corrupted and yet you will use these corrupted scriptures by pulling a verse out of it's context and use it to support your heretical ideas.

Suprising isn't it.

Hi Lex

Whats the rule to guage the context, how can you never forget the context if you don't know what the context should be,?

You have to judge the current context, which is individual to everyone. For example, a person who has killed someone, may interpret the line "Thou shalt not kill" differently to someone who hasn't. So when reading, we have to be aware of the issues we bring when reading - otherwise we end up with dissonance avoidance behaviour.
Powwow

bna,
Don't make the Bible say what you want it to say. Stay away from superficial interpretation.
There are certain things you must take into account. language, geography, history and culture. And principles to understanding. The literal, the historical, the grammatical and the synthesis principles.
bna, Bible encyclopedias, dictionaries and Bible commentaries are very helpful tools.
Always keep in mind the Bible will never contradict itself.

dissonance avoidance behaviour  

So the instinct to kill then is guaged as natural and needs to be governed by an outside influence not to kill?

I find the bible being used as tool that gives permissions rather than restrictions, like, under certain situations such and such is permissable, exploiting the corruption of a situation to fit the desire of the need, is there any of that dissonance in there ?
