Read The Bible For Yourself, not be spoon fed.

Post by Ironman » Sun Nov 05, 2017 5:39 pm

Read The Bible For Yourself: Do not let anyone, even your religious leaders, tell you that you cannot understand the Bible without their interpreting it for you. You may be persuaded that you cannot understand the Scriptures because you are not a Hebrew or Greek scholar, or you do not hold any philosophical or theological degrees. First, it is not necessary to know everything; we learn truth by degrees. Second, if the Bible really is the Word of God, then it is only reasonable to believe that God will give understanding to anyone who unselfishly seeks the truth . This is His reason for giving the Holy Spirit:

You Do Not Need To Be Spoon-fed: The notion that the Bible is best filtered down to those in the pew through religious experts is a long-standing assumption, and accounts in a large degree as to why people do not read their Bibles. Why should they, if they are paying a clergy-professional to spoon-feed them from the Scriptures several times a week?


Galatians 4: 16, Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

The above appears to be quoted from here:


Thou through Thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for Thy testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep Thy precepts.
Psalms 119:98‭-‬100 King James Version

Good post mate.I agree with you brother. :angel: :turn-l:

All of us here use other peoples thoughts and studies in our lives.We do it all the time.I sure do.And it is wise to do this.Charles Haddon Spurgeon affirmed this.And condemned those who would not learn from others.

Reverend Finis Jennings Dake did it. Dad Hagin did it.My late Pastor use to use James Lee Beall,Gordon Lindsay ,Dad Hagin and a few others in our meetings.
