Robert Dallmann (robert_dallmann) | 1598 comments * Many seek to understand God's Word with human intellect.
* Others claim that the Holy Spirit told them the "real" meaning of the Scriptures (as though God has hidden truth for millennia, until these enlightened ones reveal it.)
* Still others come up with their own private interpretations.
* Some force the Bible to say what they WANT it to say.
* Amazingly, some don't even quote the Bible when they try to understand it!

God wants you to understand the Bible... more than you want to know it!

Approach the Bible as a Book that God wants to help you understand.

"Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come." (John 16:13)

“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.” (2 Peter 1:20)
