Context reveals all

Regarding NT words which have been mistranslated, like “church” or “bishop” : The context always interprets the words for us, for example, wherever you see “church” in the NT, there’s no way that can be interpreted as a building or a denomination, that is, when it is read in context. See the context in which the word is used, and how it was applied at that time.
And if a person reads the Bible not taking into account the context and application of each word then they understand very little in real terms.
