I don't think anyone should try to be hyper-Protestant, or hyper-Catholic, or hyper-anything. I'll do my best to apply that to myself also...
I really think people are not taught *how* to study the Bible, and that can be a stumbling block throughout a person's entire life.
It's important to teach what the Bible means, but sometimes instead we must also learn how that meaning was derived. Namely, how does scripture interpret scripture? Paul was very eloquent on this topic.
