Bible twisters vs. the plumb line

By Elizabeth Prata

And today we have…The corkscrew vs the plumbline!

Illustration from

Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures, (2 Peter 3:15b-16)

The plumb line…God’s word, straight and true-

therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am the one who has laid as a foundation in Zion, a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation: ‘Whoever believes will not be in haste.’ And I will make justice the line, and righteousness the plumb line; (Isaiah 28:16-17).

Oxford Dictionary says a plumb line is “a line with a plumb attached to it, used for … determining the vertical on an upright surface.”

GotQuestions: What is a plumb line in the Bible?

Are you a Bible twister, or are you following God’s plumb line of truth? Are you following a Bible twister, or do you submit to righteous teachers who follow God’s plumb line?

In this chaotic world full of man’s philosophies, I’m grateful to Jesus for His word, God’s plumb line of truth to follow, and to the Spirit for opening my mind to it. It does not matter that the line is narrow, all I need is His strength, and the width of my feet to follow it.
