Context Matters

“The sayings of uninspired men, recorded in Scripture, ought not to be used as texts unless we know from other teachings of Scripture that they are true, or unless we  propose to find instruction in the fact that those men made the statements given. Many such sayings found in the Bible are in themselves utterly untrue, inspiration being responsible only for the fact that they were actually spoken” (Broadus, Preparation and Delivery, p. 49).
