"Based Upon My Reading of the Entire Bible"

When people use the notion of a "reading of the entire Bible" to justify their beliefs, we need to encourage them to get more specific. We want to discuss the specifics of the text, specific passages, specific wordings, and specific teachings. If we're talking about a concept of the "entire Bible", we're talking about beliefs, not the text.

[Aleksandr Sigalov:] I wrote a similar post titled Where it is written in the Written Torah? I express the same sentiments as my friend, because many people seem to ascribe to the Bible, and Torah in particular, all kinds of things and beliefs. So ALWAYS CHECK THE TEXT !!! Even the text itself can be misleading, this is why it is always important to operate only with facts and use logic and reason when trying to interpret the Written Torah.
