    The first paragraph of this little essay is noteworthy.

    “A popular maxim for Bible study—and an essential canon for accurate hermeneutics—states that an exegete should never allow one verse alone to dictate his or her theology on a matter. This oft-repeated truism attempts to protect both the callow Bible student and the seasoned theologian from embracing principles as biblical without first considering the instruction of the whole counsel of God. When this habit of biblical correlation is not practiced consistently, and the emphasis of the Bible on a matter is overlooked in favor of one passage or verse, false doctrines begin to emerge in the community.”

    Oh, that it would be applied in the Calvinism–Arminianism, complementarian–egalitarian debates.

    Denny, thanks for bringing this to our attention.
