No picking and choosing . ( 2 Timothy 3 v 16 )
Lets continue considering the exhortations in 1 Thessalonians 5 v 13 ff. ''Do not put out the Spirits fire'' ( v 19 ) The context of these words, is how we respond to God speaking to us, especially as John Stott writes the apostolic documents ,the so called letters sent by the different apostles,and others.These are to be seen as Gods word on a level with the Old Testament Scriptures.There are people who do not like Pauls writing,as there are people who don't like the OT. We cannot pick and choose ,for all scripture is Gods word,and must be accepted as such,when we refuse to listen to it,we are guilty of putting out the Spirits fire.
