I want to discuss with you a few things that I feel are serious
problems now days. That is how people use their own interpretations
of the bible without knowledge or even any proper study; some
just listen to other peoples interpretations. I have heard
some strange interpretations of scipture over the years and especally
this past year, also the subjects of separation of church and
state comes up a lot.
should not listen to a persons interpretation of anything
just because the person may have a title. This can be reckless
behavior that can hurt or even destroy some of our lives. We must
give ourselves a little credit and seek wisdom and guidance, we
must study daily.
It is ok to not always have the answers, there are times when
there are just no answers. Most do not know that the word nice
used to mean foolish or stupid? Ironically, PEOPLE started using
it as a way to describe someone as pleasant or decent,
totally UNAWARE of its original meaning,
nor did they even bother to find out. Separation of church and
state in its original context meant that the government would
not have an official state Church like England had.
English form of government officially supported the Church of
England using tax money. The founding fathers, did
not want a government controlled, or government run church.
Having said that folks, we must never forget that proper interpretations
are very important to deliver the proper message. It does not
matter whether we are interpreting the Bible, the Constitution,
or any other information.
we JUST interpret what we have heard, and not checking the information
for ourselves, we are doing Gods people and ourselves a
great injustice. We must be wise and seek the proper interpretations,
we must be good students of bible and history as well, and we
must be wise when it comes to the rights we have as believers,
AND the rights we have as citizens
in our country. God bless everyone!
