Re: Rightly directing the word of truth

Re: Rightly directing the word of truth

Okay I see. So what you oppose is not that there are proper and improper understandings of scripture. What you oppose is the rhetoric used to impose a particular interpretation of scripture when that interpretation is still up for grabs?

In otherwords, when there’s a controversial issue or someone is arguing a point, they should not use the words “proper” or “rightly” because that would not be acknowledging the intent of everyone involved in the discussion to arrive at a “proper” or “right” interpretation of scripture.

Am I tracking with you?
