"Don't be mad at me, be mad at God. I'm just telling you what he says."
Of course, I know other believers who use scripture to maintain a view opposite that of the speaker. People bring their history, culture, politics, even their personality... to their reading and study. I don't think anyone gets a clean read... of anything.
In the end, believers draw different messages out of the Bible based on who they are. So, I maintain that everyone just needs to take responsibility for their own arguments. As King Leonidas said,
"Before you speak, Persian, know that in Sparta, everyone, even a king's messenger, is held accountable for the words of his voice."
