CONCLUSION SHOPPING

Are we reading scriptures, the Bible for support for our own agenda, viewpoints, and conclusions?   Are we just trying to find something that agrees with us and our thinking?  These are questions I have pondered for quite some time now.   I have seen a person make a statement that is very negative and can only be called hateful.  Then try to twist a single sentence from the Bible to support their statement.  This is nothing more than conclusion shopping in the Holy Scriptures.  So are you one of those that spend your time in the scriptures looking for something you have already decided, a viewpoint, or in support of your own agenda?  OR  Do you read the Bible to learn the meaning of the divinely inspired words of God, seeking His guidance, His wisdom, and His love?   Do you read the Bible with no pre-conceived viewpoint, no agenda, no desire to support what you have come to believe?  These are questions we need to be asking ourselves each time we open the Bible, go to a Church service or any other type of function related to faith.   Do not seek God through your own view and eyes of who he is, but rather seek God through the words and the eyes into his heaven.   Just my opinion.
Can you be more specific about what was said and which verse they "twisted"?

This is just a general observation from multiple comments and conversations of an extended period.   I am not trying to pinpoint one person, one statement or any one thing.  I just have noticed this tendency, even in myself.  So I voiced an observation that I think we all need to work on.
I agree, and I try not to fit scripture to coincide with my personal or selfish needs or desires. I try, yet I find myself doing it though not often. I think you mean more about our beliefs and trying to fit scripture to "agree" with our established overview.
