How many times have you heard someone say this about the word all? “All means 'all' and that’s all that all means?” While this is true (the word all does mean “all”), the word all doesn’t always mean every possible thing all at once.

One example of how we misuse this word occurs in Philippians 4:13. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." To what does "all things" refer? Join Pastor Thomas Overmiller in discovering the bedrock principle for Christian living that this verse teaches (and what is doesn't teach).

When another believer slogs through a series of difficult circumstances, do you ever try to encourage him or her by quoting 1 Corinthians 10:13, at least in part? You might say, “Don’t worry, God never gives you more than you can handle!” Before you do this again, let me encourage you to consider whether or not this verse applies to the situation at hand. Join Pastor Thomas Overmiller in this short episode to discover what this verse does and doesn't teach.

Sometimes we lift right ideas from the wrong places in the Bible. One such example is how we use John 12:32, when Jesus said, "I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to myself." While we may quote this as a call to worship or a promise for evangelism, it is neither. Join Pastor Thomas Overmiller to discover what this verse means and why it is important not misapply such a verse, even with good intentions and for a good cause.

"Blood is thicker than water” is a popular phrase, but it is not a Bible verse. But there is one passage of Scripture (among others) that we frequently misunderstand, Matthew 18:19-20, which says, “I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there in the midst of them.” Do these verses teach us universal principles about all kinds of prayer (as we often assume), or do they teach us something more specific? Join Pastor Thomas Overmiller to discover what Jesus is teaching about the difficult but important practice of church discipline.
