United Church of Christ Accidentally Quotes Satan

“If you will but worship me, all will be yours” (Luke 4:7)

The above quote was displayed on the church’s website.

Then they realized that it was actually a quote from Satan:

For those of you who were kind enough to inform us about our previously inaccurate quote…we thank you! We were recently made aware that the former quote we had posted in the header on our site was actually not based on the word of Jesus but was a quote posed to him during his temptation. As soon as we were made aware of this we removed the quote from our site.

We removed it…not hackers as some ill-informed bloggers would have you believe. This lesson is a demonstration why when using tools online to identify quotes that you think deliver the honest and sincere message you intended you should always view the quotes in their whole context

    Talk about taking a verse out of context!

  2. Totally. That’s what scares me about people that quote scripture all the time. While memorizing scripture is a very virtuous and spiritually fulfilling act, I find it just as important to know the context of what is being quoted.

    That story was good and it got better when I realized it happened 30 minutes up the road. Thanks for sharing!
