say what you want... not

proof texting: take any variety of texts of Scripture and string and sandwich them together as proof for anything you want it to say.

Check out this cleverly done spoof of The Shining. Basically this rendition takes one of the most shocking horror movies of the '70's and clips and snips and adds just a little wee bit to re-create it to a lovely little happily ever after story.

Anyone who knows the original will know what a misrepresentation of the movie it is. This is why it is important to stay grounded in contextual interpretation. Observe and interpret Biblical texts based on the context and overall meaning of the Bible for readers today.

Thanks to Christian Worldview Network for the tip on the movie clip.

Grace and peace,
