The Truth About Bible Choppers: Exposing the Twisting of Scripture

The Truth About Bible Choppers: Exposing the Twisting of Scripture Scripture Manipulation 

Are you tired of people misusing and twisting Bible verses to suit their own selfish desires? As a passionate believer in the Word of God, I've witnessed too many so-called "Bible choppers" taking scriptures out of context, ignoring crucial elements, and manipulating their meaning for personal gain. In this post, I'll shed light on this dangerous practice and provide you with the tools to identify and combat it.

Bible choppers love to cherry-pick verses like John 14:13-14, focusing solely on the phrases "whatsoever" and "anything" while conveniently ignoring the conditions of asking "in My name" and "that the Father may be glorified." This tactic is straight out of Satan's playbook, as he twisted Scripture to tempt Jesus in Matthew 4:6-7, taking verses out of context to fulfill his selfish desires.

Recognizing the Tactics of Bible Choppers

These individuals twist Scripture to make Jesus their servant rather than their Lord. They disregard crucial teachings like asking according to God's will (1 John 5:14), avoiding selfish lusts (James 4:3), and the necessity of repentance and holiness (Psalm 66:18, Revelation 21:8, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Galatians 5:19-21, 1 Peter 4:1-4).

The Importance of Studying the Whole Counsel of God

Bible choppers ignore the sum of God's Word (Psalm 119:160), picking and choosing pet verses while neglecting the rest of Scripture. They fail to meditate day and night on the entirety of God's teachings (Joshua 1:8) and overlook crucial verses like John 14:15, which emphasizes the need to keep Jesus' commandments.

The Fruit of False Doctrine

These individuals honor God with their lips, but their hearts are far from Him (Matthew 15:7-9). If Jesus is truly their Lord, they should bear the fruit of obedience (Matthew 7:20, Luke 6:46). Like Job, our love for God's Word should surpass our desire for physical sustenance (Job 23:12).

Are you ready to stand against the twisting of Scripture and embrace the full counsel of God's Word? Join me in prayerfully reading and meditating on the Bible daily, exposing the lies of false doctrine and discerning the true thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12). Together, let's honor God with our lives, not just our lips.

  1. Stern words with good warrant. Keep up the good fight brother!

  2. Stephen! Thanks for your post. I really was apprehensive about posting this. I thought that i might come off a little to "holier than thou". Which is by no means what i intended.
    Students do their homework at school cause there is going to be a test. Why don't Christians do their homework? Do they not think there will be a test?

    God bless you. Thank you so much for your inspiring comments.

  3. This is an excellent read. I was praying the other day - asking God "not to" - and I had to laugh - because I wondered if I was asking because I knew Gods will and was willing to do it, or If I knew Gods will and truly didn't wan't to do it. catch 22's - wow.

    I don't want to be a chopper - but I do keep in mind that If I'm supposed to do it - then God will help me through.

    Thanks for reflecting the amazing love and grace of the Lord here!! YOU are radical!!



  4. Thanks for the comment Marie.

    Yes I am radical! LOL....

    One of the things i was thinking about as i wrote this post is people will going around saying "you have just got to believe". And i say "believe what?"

    We aren't supposed to believe just anything we want and then copy and paste a scripture that to justify our selfish lusts like satan does in Matt 4:6. We are to believe what the Lord tells us to believe.

    " If I'm supposed to do it - then God will help me through"

    Absolutely! Jesus Authors (writes, decrees, speaks etc.. ) and finishes (sees it through) our Faith (See Heb 12:2)! Our job is to believe and stand on the Authored Word.

    On the subject of faith. In Heb 11 we see the hall of fame of faith. The people were told something by the Lord and then stood on it. They didn't just make something up and then try to justify it in the word somehow like satan did in matt 4:6.

    Bible choppers don't bother to seek God's will for their lives, but simply name and claim things that God never told them (Abusing Mark 11:24).

    When you were asking God for His will, you are actually seeking the true desire (of Father = de + sire) of the Father. You will then believe what He Authors and stand on faith. He will then finish the work!

    You are such a blessing! Thank you for being a part of my life. I am learning a lot from you!

    The Lord touches me during #Tworship. It is hard for me to get my head around it, but i feel His presence. That is an awesome ministry you have!

    Jesus Rules!
