A little boy asked his friend, "Why does your grandmother study the Bible so much?" "I'm not sure," he replied. "I think she's studying for her finals."

Bible interpretation, like a lot of things, depends a lot on context. For instance, take the time that my wife, Alli, called out to me, "Can I make one more call, darling?" Anyone hearing this might have assumed that I was an ogre, and that she had to have my permission to use the telephone. But earlier, I had told her I needed the phone after she had made a call. After her call, she had decided that she needed to make another, so she was checking with me. Taking something out of context always gives the wrong impression.


The Bible is like a spiritual mobile phone: it only works when it's open.
