Scriptures We Choose to Overlook
In order for us to be a successful Donut Church there are many scriptures that must be diminished, minimized, or just totally ignored. For us, those scriptures include the following:
- Matthew 7:13,14- Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
- 2 Timothy 3:16- All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
- Luke 9:23- And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
- Luke 14:26- If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
- Luke 14:27- And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
- Luke 14:33- So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
- 2 Corinthians 6:17- Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
- 1 Thessalonians 5:22- Abstain from all appearance of evil.
- 2 Timothy 4:2 Amplified- Herald and preach the Word! Keep your sense of urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable. [Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.] And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning and urging and encouraging them, being unflagging and inexhaustible in patience and teaching.
- 1 Corinthians 2:15- But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
- 1 Corinthians 11:31- For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
- And many, many more!
