Context. He was speaking to the people of HIS DAY, not ours. It is incorrect to take the words of Scripture and directly apply it to us now in our circumstances. These things were written for those at that time in their cultural and historical situation. You must do your homework and then see what it meant to them, what it meant through the years and if there is an overarching meaning for us today. You also need to study the original language and see the nuances, and look at the different translations as some may be in error. So not to put you down, but I always flinch when I see people taking the Bible and applying it directly to us today in our western culture. This is so wrong. Pastors need to stop teaching that the Bible has a direct meaning for us today. They need to teach proper contextualization techniques and educate people. Otherwise the Bible is taken out of context, especially the prophets. Meanwhile, many people disagree with James such as Luther who called his words those of straw. But then again Luther had his own baggage. So please, when you preach on here, check your historicity, your cultural nuances, your presuppositions and leave them at the door. Please and thank you. God bless.
