Jesus stated in Matthew 4:4, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

That by which the physical life (in Adam) is sustained is physical food.  That by which the spiritual life (in Christ) is sustained is the entire word of God.

We do not live by our ‘pet texts’ as ‘proof texts’ to support personal belief systems.  We live according to the entirety of God’s Word.

Failure (or refusal) to take God’s Word seriously forces Scripture to become a secondary source of truth and God becomes a secondary ‘god’ who is worshipped in vain.
