If you were to suggest the most misunderstood page in the Bible, what would you suggest? Think about it. Would you suggest the page that records:
- Judges 11 and Jephthah’s sacrifice of his daughter?
- 1 Samuel 16 and God sending an evil spirit upon King Saul?
- Daniel 9 and the 70 weeks?
- Revelation 20 and the 1000 year reign?
These pages and many others just like them may very well be among some of the most misunderstand pages in the Bible. But any of them, in fact all of them combined together come in a distant second to the page contained in the link below. Go ahead and click on it before you read any further, and see if you don’t agree with me.
Well, what do you think? In my judgment, I don’t know of any other page in the Bible that is more misunderstood, and consequently results in so many mistaken beliefs. Misunderstanding this page is responsible for:
- Some observing the Sabbath today.
- Some believing that we can be saved without baptism (like the thief on the cross).
- Some using instrumental music in Christian worship.
- Some misunderstanding Jesus’ teaching on marriage, divorce, and remarriage.
- Some believing that some meats are unclean and not to be eaten.
- Some living under a heavy yoke of bondage.
- Some becoming estranged from Jesus and falling from grace.
If we’re ever to come to a proper understanding of God’s will for our lives and faithfully fulfill our responsibilities as Christians, we must understand the implications of this important and most misunderstood page in the Bible.
