It is important to note that all of it has been taken out of context and cannot be contextualized because of this. It is interesting how these men are ministers who are taking Scripture out of context and skewing it in such a way as to confuse anyone who reads the book or the blog about the book. It would be much easier just to warn people to not even acknowledge that the book and blog had ever been written.
