Scripture was written by divinely inspired individuals. Scripture contains truth.
That said, one must be careful not to fall into the trap of Interpretation.
Yes, we must interpret everything we read. Otherwise we would never understand anything. The trap comes in becoming attached to any one interpretation. The biblical literalists are an example of this. Frequently, they are lazy and think they have it all figured out. That's arrogance.
One needs humility and hard work to find the "spirit" of scripture.
"Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life" (2 Corinthians 3:6 KJV).
When you listen to the quiet, still voice within, then you can hear the voice of the shepherd leading you home.
Even then, the divinely inspired will frequently come up with different messages. Each message is influenced by the times, the circumstances, and their personal experiences (biases). This does not make the scripture any less important or true. You have to see the entire tapestry of Scripture to understand the spirit. Studying other religion can help in this, but it can also lead some people astray.
Any interpretation into human words and meaning is suspect and imperfect.
The truth behind scripture is likely something that cannot be accurately represented in human words. But it can be discussed and approximated. Like comparing the Buddhist paramitas to the Scripture of Judeo-Christianity. With this, one can see the nature of the "truth" that will set you free.
We are baby creators, but only if we view the world as spirit. If we view it as ego, then we are merely and only a cog in the machine -- of this world.
