We use the scriptures for inspirations; we use to learn about God. It helps you feel closer to God. It strengthens your relationship with God. The Bible is probably the bestselling book of all time. In Christian society it is probably the most quoted book. But how much of what is quoted is actually in the Bible.
“Spare the rod and spoil the child”
This could be a quote from the book of proverb which is a book of wisdom. It however, doesn’t exit, the bible in Proverb 13:24 “He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him.” The actual quote is from 17th a satirical poem called “Hudibras”
“Money is the root of all evil”
There is however a verse which is closer to the real deal, it is found in the book of1 Timothy 6:10: “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”
“Blessed and highly favored”
This is a good phrase but it can’t be found in the bible, infact some claim that Paul wrote to the one of the churches but the truth is he never wrote it.
“God moves in mysterious ways”
No Christian can deny the knowledge of this “verse”. It is not a biblical verse, it is feasible that the phrase can be linked to Isaiah 55:8: “‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the LORD.”
