Do you take the Bible literally? Be careful how you answer that. It may not be as “literal” as you think!

Spin Tires On Pavement. That was how my friend interpreted Stop signs when he drove. Oh, we knew better, but we were childish and immature -a lot like people approach the Bible sometimes.

There are many rules and principles for proper Bible study, and without understanding this one, we are likely to make the Bible say things it never intended.

Generally speaking, the Bible should be treated literally unless there areĀ compelling reasons to treat it figuratively. We might no always agree on whether or not the reasons are “compelling”, but we ought to be able to agreeĀ for the most part, especially when we remember that the only interpretation that counts is how God sees it.

Let’s study to find out what He wants and not what we want.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]
