Really enjoyed this article. It provides insight into what those identified as Christians have done for centuries - yanked scripture apart to take a passage totally out of context and apply it for our own misguided and self-centered purposes. The appropriation of John 8:36 simply demonstrates a total lack of reverence toward the teachings of Jesus. The use of the Esther passage actually strikes me as somewhat anti-Semitic. Why would a asserted follower of a Jewish Rabbi (Yeshua) have such disrespect for the Jewish scriptures? That, however, is one of the aspects of Bible Freedom, the right of wrongly motivated people to abuse and misuse what is to other sacred. As always B & B - Keep the Faith and Keep Up the Good Reporting/Writing!!!
