Verses, Chapters, Paragraphs and Punctuation

When they do not synchronize with other Scripture, dear reader, you are at liberty to change commas, and periods, and verses, and chapters. Any arrangement of punctuation that clarifies, correlates, explains and harmonizes other Scripture is more authoritative than that punctuation that beclouds other statements of Holy Writ. We have no divine authority to treat our divisions of verses, chapters, paragraphs or punctuation marks as icons to be held sacred, or hold them in reverence as the ark that could not be touched.
