You won’t know the whole counsel of God unless you read the hard passages in the Bible

Albert Mohler Jr. had this to say:

“The Bible’s hard passages help us grasp a fuller understanding of the whole counsel of God. If we skip over challenging passages, we will become biblically impoverished. Consequently, when out Bible reading is impoverished, so too is our growth in godliness. We must seek to understand the Bible’s difficult parts by reference to its clearer parts. As the Reformers taught us, Scripture interprets Scripture. Difficult passages become clearer when we set them within the context of the entire cannon [Bible].”
