The error of subjective interpretation

 

  • Biblical interpretation is objective not subjective

The error of “subjective interpretation” in personal Bible study

  • John MacArthur
  • Lay aside your own beliefs
  • Ask the question “what did the person who wrote the passage originally mean by what he said?”

 

Scripture is design to renew, transform, and re-align your thinking

  • An illustration
  • Psalm 37 correctly interpreted
  • Summation
