    I found this and thought it was funny. I hope you enjoy.

    Watchout you don’t get a bad cherry!

    Very nice. Amusingly I bet that many of the real world fruit pickers wouldn’t even realise they’ve been satirised, or even recognise the point being made. It’s a subtle dig, but a clever one nonetheless. I like it a lot.

    Simply brilliant!

    Tell ya what, actually living fully by faith can be a bit scary at times.

    Though cherry picking scripture is a common manipulation method (both of self and others), what is the opposite? The opposite is to somehow assume that the Christian scriptures are an integrated whole with one message which is also false. So what analogy would you use for that?

    Whole-Package Shopping? Embarrassingly, I’ve done that lots of times.

    faith doesn’t fall comfortably into one basket – or always look pretty. it’s mind-boggling to hold both that you sin & fail, and that your loved & forgiven. i do find though, that books that try to make faith pretty and accessible, skimming over tricky stuff, can often leave me feeling abandoned. it’s the ‘take this nice cheery faith, and you’ll be happy’, rather than an acceptance that we have a lot to cope with, – i’m not sure if i’m making myself clear, sorry.

    i think that everyone cherry picks to a degree. i’m not sure how you can avoid it or even if it is wise to do so.

    If the tree of faith only produces cherries, its hard to pick anything else. Of course, it could be admired from a distance as a pretty tree, climbed up and hidden in or cut down and used to build pews…

    timbobaggins – they are all cherries, but you have to pick them all, not just the obviously sweet and juicy ones!

    Are those that cherry pick from their holy book hypocrites?
    Are those that believe it all without thinking fundamentalists?
