So, I encountered someone who was using God and the scriptures to belittle people. Like obnoxiously. They wouldn't actually quote scripture they would just say the bible says without a reference. Most of it was out of contexed and not what Jesus or the apostles meant. SO... I began to quote scripture including the references. I wasn't expecting them to give up but eventually, it finally made her stop. She couldn't use the bible to defeat the bible. It feels so good inside to be able to use the Word of God for defense. Do you want to know the best part though? It made us friends. I don't think it changed her view but she liked my approach. Do you have a sword of the Spirit story?
