This Week’s Youth Focus 9/22

This Thursday we will be examining the statement “never read a Bible verse.” This concept comes from Greg Koukle of This phrase is not teaching to not read the Bible but rather when we read the Bible we should never read only one verse. When reading the Bible or any literature it is important to read the paragraph before and after to develop the background information and gain a better understanding of the author’s intent. Many Christians read one or two verses out of the Bible and come to their conclusion of what it means without trying to understand the author’s intent. Many Christians develop wrong theology because of this practice and often read the Bible through relativistic lenses. “What does this verse mean to you?” This Thursday, we examine in more detail how to study the Bible, as well as look at specific verses that Christians have used to develop wrong theology by not reading the surrounding paragraphs. Lastly, we will discuss how the concept, “never read a Bible verse”, fits into our overall Biblical worldview.
