Good morning people who
2 Timothy 2:15 NIV Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
We have substituted “Handle the Word of God correctly” with “Interpret the Word of God as seems best to you”.
Interpretation that comes from divine revelation is accurate because the Source is God.
Interpretation that does not come from divine revelation is dangerous and erroneous because the source is us.
We cannot handle the Word of God correctly outside of divine revelation from our Father in heaven.
Our application is aligned to our interpretation, and this is why it must be founded in divine revelation.
We do what we believe, therefore, if our belief is incorrect, our doing will be incorrect.
Trying to change what we do without changing what we believe will result in ongoing frustration and disappointment.
True freedom is connected to right believing, and right believing is connected to divine revelation, not natural interpretation.
