 Re:

I personally just passed on what the word of God said, I can say that I feel that scriptures do minister differently to different people, I feel that is why it's called the living word of God. I have never been into scripture interpretation some have those gifts, that is why I do not try to interpret the word of God, but to understand it. My personal view is when man interprets God's word vs. understanding the word, How can one have an understanding? We are flesh, soul and spirit; God is a Spirit; when our spirit and God's Spirit are connected we then learn and understand instead of interpret His word, just my personal view and as long as we agree to disagree well no harm done. We all are at different places in our walk, I have moved on from any debates over the word I just read it and try my best to experience what it's ministering to me and unless we go back to the Greek and Hebrew versions and really have the gifts to understand both there is really no use in my debating the word, so I will stick with just trying to understand the Word the best I can.

Hi Mr. Bill

I just want to encourage you to always strive to get the correct definition of each word in it's context. This requires the use of your reason and mind. If your careless in your study of scripture you may spend time meditating on verses totally out of context and have an incorrect view of God and His commands. To understand means to first do your homework otherwise your just being lazy. Believe me I am being delivered out of a lazy lifestyle myself. It would be a shame to spend all this time meditating on a verse only to have God tell you in heaven you spent most of your time believing lies.

If the bible were a treasure map that could find a treasure worth 1 billion dollars how meticulous would you be in interpreting and decoding it to get that treasure. I bet you just like me would interpret and decode it precisely and find the treasure and in short time at that. Each scripture you understand is like a precious gem that is worth far more then any amount of money. There is power in the Word of God but taking scripture out of context or understanding a word out of it's intended context will not help you at all. It will help your human intellect but like the treasure map will only lead to an empty hole with no comfort or joy to give. Spend the time and use the mind the same way you would use it to find a treasure because God's word is much more then an earthly treasure to be desired far more then rubies, and gems and gold and silver.

 Re:

Thanks AsliEren I sincerely appreciate your advise we all had to start somewhere in our walk none of us were born out of the womb as we are now in our walk, and what you said in your post is really great! and all a part of my growing and I feel in my spirit because of the way your explained it to me you understood that and God Bless You. We all here regardless of the opinions others post need to remember were all at different levels and we need sweet, kind, words of encouragement and if we in our responses to others posts feel we can't get the message across without hollering,and forcing back opinions maybe we should wait and see if someone like AsliEren might come along and answer there question with a sweet spirit. We all like a good debate or rebuttal "human nature" but we cannot afford to loose even one soul that might come here to grasp hold of God and his word I know this is tough for it's tough not to pull that sword my best friend is a sword puller, I can't do anything right in his eye's well not anything but if my ideas don't line up with his "swish" comes out the sword but I have learned to just let him cut and God do the healing and our friendship has strengthened, God is love and don't we want to be like God?
