“Rightly dividing the Word of truth”

readingscriptureintradition

In studying the scriptures I have found that it can and should be treated like a hard science.  There are hard and fast rules that one must use to properly divide the Word of God, it is not simply a matter of what a particular verse means to you.

When you get to the point in your studies that you’re being forced to believe things that you don’t personally wish to believe, you’re doing it right.  Below are my posts on discovering the rules of how to read and understand scripture.

1.  Biblical Authority

2.  Recognizing Genre

3.  Clear governs Unclear

4.  New Testament governs Old Testament
