2 Peter 1:20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things.
As you might expect, after twenty five years in ministry I have heard some pretty outlandish things stated as biblical truth. The Bible itself is at first blush rather outlandish in itself, excepting that if you are reading it with a skeptical eye, you are reading someone else’s mail. Without a true love relationship with the master and creator of all things you can never hope to fully grasp the “fullness” of the meaning behind the words. Plenary inspiration of the books of the Bible is a powerful principle that allows the character fo the writer to shine through the words and yet fully convey the message given by God.
The only way to winnow out the chaff of much of what has been culturally tagged onto the Biblical account is to do a few things. First, to believe in the Son of God. Second, to learn as best as possible to understand the words of scripture and let them speak to your heart. Third, to come to grips with the cultural differences with a middle Eastern culture through the ages, understanding the times (1 Chronicles 12: 32 of the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do,) in which the events of scripture took place. All of the foregoing carries implicitly that one has come to grips with the fact that without the grace and longsuffering kindness of God the father in the crucifixion, death and resurrection of His only son, and has truly repented of the sin which separates them from the love of the father.
