The comparing of Scripture with Scripture is valuable for the purpose of harmonization

Arthur PinkThe comparing of Scripture with Scripture is valuable for the purpose of harmonization or preserving the balance of Truth, thus preventing our becoming lopsided. An illustration of this is found in connection with what is termed “the great commission,” a threefold record of which, with notable variations, is given in the last chapter of each of the Synoptic Gospels. In order to obtain a right or full knowledge of the complete charge Christ there gave unto His servants, instead of confining our attention to only one or two of them—as is now so often the case—the three accounts of it need to be brought together. Luke 24:47, shows it is just as much the minister’s duty “that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name” as it is to bid sinners “believe on Him”; and Matthew 28:19, 20, makes it clear that it devolves as much upon him to baptize those who believe and then to teach them to observe all things whatsoever He commanded as to “preach the gospel to every creature.” Quality is even more important than quantity! One of the chief reasons why so few of the Christian churches in heathen lands are self-supporting is that missionaries have too often failed in thoroughly indoctrinating and building up their converts, leaving them in an infantile state and going elsewhere seeking to evangelize more of their fellows.

I am not going to be dealing with a specific text, although we will cover a number of texts before we are through tonight. But I want to carry on our special study of “Charismatic Chaos,” looking and evaluating the Charismatic movement from the Word of God, by focusing on the issue of interpreting the Bible. One of the things that allows for the Charismatic movement to continue, to move ahead, is that it is engaged in misinterpretation of Scripture. I know that is a strong thing to say, but it is true. The movement continues at really an amazing pace, not only in America but around the world. And as it moves and catapults itself along it does so at the expense of Scripture……………
