How to Interpret the Bible

May 17, 2011

Image from GNU Free Documentation LicenseIn 1993 Hank Hanegraaff ("The Bible Answer Man") wrote a book entitled Christianity in Crisis. In the book he exposed problems within evangelicalism. Many think that in actuality Hanegraaff understated the problems of both doctrine and practice within Christianity, and time has made the issues even more acute.

Forgive us for saying so, but perhaps it is time to be honest with ourselves. American Christianity, at least much of it, is a mess. It is separated into divisive sects, giving the world the impression that we don't know what we are doing. Or even more alarming, that the true God is somehow irrelevant and confused. This is not to say that individual American churches are not proclaiming the Gospel in its truth and purity. But some serious introspection is in order. How to Interpret the Bible is a Faith Facts article which tackles this issue. Click HERE to read the entire article.

Interpreting Scripture
Reply #1 on : Fri May 20, 2011, 05:18:15
No one can interpret God's word for you as a Christian. If you have been truely born-again the Holy Spirit will direct you in understanding scripture. And before you read pray and ask God to reveal to you what He want you to know. Man is imperfect and you should not solely rely on man fully in interpreting God's word for you. Even the best and honest of preachers, pastors, and teachers will tell you the same thing. Why? Because if they mislead you they do not want to be held accountable for it in the eye's of God. There's scripture to back up this i'm saying, read for yourself everythng Jesus done was in the spirit. All man is not filled with the Holy spirit of God to interpret scripture.
