Things to be aware of when interpreting the Bible

Eisegesis
Exegesis - is extracting the true meaning from a Text
Eisegesis - is when you impose your own meaning upon a text
This often happens when we say “what does this mean to me instead of asking what does it mean.”
Spiritualization
Looking for a deeper meaning or different meaning then the one presented.
Example: Youth pastor telling young men to march around the girl he wants to marry 7 times until the walls of her heart come down
Over-Personalization
The proactive of reading your own personal situation into the passage.
Different then application.
This is making us the focus of the passage.
It is important to seek comfort in God’s Word but we should treat Scripture fairly and not read into the text something that was not intended.
Example: Woman praying about a situation and belieivng the act the word Mark was in this verse was her answer about her son Mark’s innocence. Psalm 37:37 “37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: For the end of that man is peace.”
