2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
As we study the Word of God, we should apply both spiritual and literal principles of interpretation. The spiritual principles include prayer- Ps 119:18-cleansing- 1 John 1:9- and the illumination by the Holy Sprit- 1 Cor 2:12-16-. The principle of literally understanding scripture is to interpret it according to: the mind of the author, its historical backround, the context of the passage, and the basic rules of grammar.
As I read this today, I thought of all on RF and would like to pass this on to you as the spirit fill's my life. Amen
2 Timothy 2:19
