Comment on What I Hate About Memorizing Scripture by Mogire Nuhu

Referencing is very important to any Christian who profess Christianity. When Christ was quoting the Old Testament, there’s no place that says he didn’t know where they were from. A matter of fact is that he gave references
KJV Matthew 24
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
KJV Luke 24
27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

You can be sure he was explaining according to how each prophet prophesied about him beginning at Moses. Misinterpretation comes with picking verses without reference. You have to understand the context of a verse before applying it
KJV Isaiah 28
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

No wonder most people misuse verses bcoz of memorizing without reference not knowing who wrote, why he wrote them, and to who were they written.
Take for example u memorize
”Upon this rock I will build my church… “
” Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities.”
Just to mention but a few.

Ask yourself self how someone will interpret this without understanding the context….
Never memorize scripture without reference… It just can’t work.
