Original blog May 4, 2109. Black and white. Right and wrong. Good and evil. Sound doctrine and private interpretations. Didn’t it seem like it easier in days gone by. I guess I truly am a senior citizen to use a phrase like “in days gone by.”
2 Peter 1:20 – Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. (NIV 1978)
My Musings – We are being bombarded by new “revelations” and new interpretations at an ever-increasing and alarming rate. But the Scriptures we have had stood the test of time because they were inspired by the Holy Spirit. Let’s stick with them.
My Advice – You will encounter many private interpretations of Scripture. Many will have generated a large following. But always remember, God’s Word does not change, and a large following of another word does not make that word true.
