That is a direct quote from another thread, but I'm sure we've all heard it many times before. Have you used that term any time recently-- say, for the current calendar year-- and what was the topic and the scripture reference in question? Has someone else cited a facsimile of "look at the context" and what was that topic and scripture? Was the one you had a difference of opinion or application with a fellow Baptist, another Christian, a cultist, a nonbeliever, or ___? The most recent one I remember was when I could still post on the Dallas Morning News site, and the issue was (you might already have guessed) homosexuality. And my enemies there were all kinds-- mostly agnostics and 'liberal Christians,' to whom I cited only NT scripture, so they could not come back with "Do you eat shellfish? Have you ever worn cotton and polyester at the same time?..... " in addition to their claim that sexual orientation was not known until recent historical times, and therefore is not what is condemned, so it's a matter of the 'context' the writers' understanding. My position is that the scriptures are inspired by God, to whom all things are known, so they are as valid as any scripture. But the real point here is that the "consider the context" argument is only put forth by those who deny one side or the other of the issue. Many Baptists may say that to Pentecostals about tongues and healing, for example. After all, the Bible does say God "heals all our diseases" [Psalm 41:3], and that believers "will speak with other tongues" [Mark 16:17]. (I presume there is no reason here to go over the arguments we make on these.) But "we" do it and "they" do it. So if the context argument does not convince you, don't expect it to convince them either.
