If You Break One Have You Broken Them All?
James 2 talks about adultery and murder, and basically says “It doesn’t matter which of them you commit, either way you have broken the law”. Verse 10 says, “Whoever keeps the whole law but offends on even one point is guilty of breaking all the laws”. Some people try to use this passage to say that this means we have also committed the unforgivable sin.
As Rob shows in this episode of Exegetical Fallacies, once again this comes from not knowing the scriptures and not reading them in their context. But, in this instance, it is also a case of twisting scripture to try and make it say what you want it to say.
