Someone made this point:
"when someone quotes something they should write something before & after it so that others know their spin on it. so many verses mean different things to different ppl & have different meanings in different situations. it also keeps ppl from assuming..."
Which brings up another question for me. Very often I hear the argument made that someone is using a verse out of context (specifically the ones about who can and cannot judge whom, but not only those). Aren't all scripture quotes out of context? You can list the chapter and verse, but you have no idea how the verses before and after are written in the bible of choice owned by the reader. If you are making your point with a verse, and still have to write an explanation to provide context, why use the verse at all?

This is why Sacred tradition is so important. We've already been given the answers straight from Christ and his Apostles. Paul even warns against only using what is written to remember what is taught. They taught us before the Written word. the written word does reiterate what was taught. But as some has done can also be used to spread false teachings. Or incomplete teachings.There many who have a wonderful Love of Christ and Our Father, I pray everyday that at some time they will see the whole picture,
