God's Word is God's Word [2 Peter 1]
20But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation, 21for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
I have talked with people who consider themselves to be Bible scholars. They have all sorts of interesting views on Scripture. One man told me that there are all sorts of contradictions in the Bible and yet as I have studied over the years, I haven't found one. I have seen places that seem to contradict, but with further study, the fact is they don't. Others pick and choose truth making their own decisions as to what they will believe and what they will reject. I have even talked to some who were so locked in by their own doctrine, that they couldn't see what the Bible was saying if it contradicted their doctrine. All of these ways of looking at Scripture are like a house of cards. The house looks impressive, but can be easily blown away.
God's Word is either His Word or it isn't. You either accept it as it is or you don't. God has left us with no in between when considering the authority and veracity of the Word. Even in its interpretation, you have no wiggle room. There is one meaning and that is God's. Our job then, is to discover God's message through the application of good Bible study principles and lots of prayer.
We praise you for Your perfect Word. Cause us to be excellent students of your Word letting You guide us to Your meaning for our lives.
