Romans 10:4 "For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth."

1st Timothy 1:5 "Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart. . . ."

Proverbs 11:30 "The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise."

James 5:16 "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."

Romans 3:10-12 ". . . There is none righteous, no, not one . . . there is none that doeth good, no, not one."

Matthew 19:16-17 ". . . there is none good but one, that is, God. . . ."

The Lord thinks and speaks comparatively, just like we do:

Ezekiel 16:46-52 "Neither hath Samaria committed half of thy sins . . . they are more righteous than thou. . . ."

2nd Peter 2:4-8 Lot is referred to as "just" and "righteous." (He twice got drunk and slept with his daughters.)

John 19:11 ". . . he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin."

Luke 6:27-29 "And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other. . . ." (Context in v. 27)

Exodus 21:24 "Eye for eye, tooth for tooth. . . ."

(Context in vs. 1, 22, & 22:9 for "the judges")

Exodus 20:13 "Thou shalt not kill." (Matthew 5:21-22 --It's still true!)

Exodus 29:11 "And thou shalt kill the bullock before the Lord. . . ." (Acts 10:13 --Killing animals is still OK.)

Leviticus 20:9-16 "And if a woman approach unto any beast . . . thou shalt kill the woman. . . ." (Sodomy laws)

Numbers 31:14-17 ". . . kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman. . . ." (War)

Matthew 19:16-18 "Thou shalt do no murder. . . ." (Liberals don't believe in "killing" criminals, but unborn babies.)

HERE IS HOW IT WORKS:

(1) God said: (1st Timothy 2:11-12) "But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man. . . ."

So lesbians and womenís libbers quote: Galatians 3:28 ". . . there is neither male nor female. . . ."

(to justify sodomy and women preachers)

[Of course they are totally out of context.] (The context for Galatians 3:28 is in vs. 22 & 26-29)

(2) "Itís not the letter that counts, its the Spirit!" (When they say that, what in the world is their context?)

Romans 2:29 "But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God." (The context: what constitutes being a true Jew!)
