  • It must be okay. So many christians DO it. The belief system is very structured and selective. It's considered good to quote verses that imply that god values life. But it's NOT okay to quote the verses where god orders women, children, infants and animals put to the sword, or the ones where pregnant women are commanded to be "ripped up". Both are in the bible, but only one set is acceptable to quote.

  • If you're a Bible believing living person, no. If real life situations are understood by you that real life is more powerful than the old written words of the bible then yes because compassionate actions were the cause of the misuse.

  • No, we should never rigidly hold to personal ideas or cherished doctrinal views. Rather, let us be willing to “let God be found true, though every man be found a liar.”—Romans 3:4.

  • NO! That is lying and if a christian uses a scripture KNOWINGLY in a false way then that person makes a bad name for all Christians. That's why so many people are turned away from God.

  • No!
    Acta 20:29 I know that after my going away oppressive wolves will enter in among YOU and will not treat the flock with tenderness, 30 and from among YOU yourselves men will rise and speak twisted things to draw away the disciples after themselves
    2Tim4:3 For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the healthful teaching, but, in accord with their own desires, they will accumulate teachers for themselves to have their ears tickled; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, whereas they will be turned aside to false stories. 5 You, though, keep your senses in all things, suffer evil, do [the] work of an evangelizer, fully accomplish your ministry.

    Deut.4: 2 YOU must not add to the word that I am commanding YOU, neither must YOU take away from it, so as to keep the commandments of Jehovah YOUR God that I am commanding YOU. [& 12:32; Prov.30:6;Rev.22:18)
