Summary The author Pastor Zhongshi Shao uses "The Procrustean Bed" as the title, in the hope that everyone can understand, on the interpretation of the Bible is not the plane view of the people to interpret. As I have repeatedly emphasized, different times have different cultural backgrounds, ideas and values, we can never use that way of thinking time to interpret the Bible, the events described, so that same way of the brutality for the robbers procrustean. Procrustean bed, its meaning is: insist consistent; procrustean, far-fetched; forced to conform. I sincerely look forward to, as Christians in 2010, could jump out of the background of the framework of that era, so that we recorded in the Bible and the revelation of God, have a more correct view. Different times evoke different cultural background, philosophies as well as value systems. One should not use the mentalities of times past to interpret the biblical descriptions of events. To do so would be no different than a malicious robber. About author: In 1941 years, I was born in Shantou, Guangdong. It was during the Japanese invasion to China.
