Context gives true meaning to parable

I would like to thank Michael Ledo for his letter Sept. 4, "Jesus, `Cult leader' preached `hate'."

People like him make me go to the Word of God. I will "Do (my) best to present (my)self to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth." II Timothy 2:15.

His quote of Luke 12:47 shows the danger of not reading the entire parable that Jesus was telling. This parable tells what will happen to us when he returns to claim his bride and we are not being obedient to God's word.

Anyone can take just one Scripture and make it mean whatever they want...
