How do YOU interpret scripture?


I was recently told I was only looking for trouble and to go post my stupid comments elsewhere after someone told me they get their understanding of the Bible from what the catholic church establishes as true, to which I then questioned why the church is considered infallible while other interpretations are fallible. It boiled down to if they agreed on something, its truth through the holy spirit. If they don't, its irrelevant. How do YOU interpret scripture, and what makes your interpretation more "right" than someone else's?

    The person said the leaders of the church establish truth through the holy spirit, yet immediately after said they could be wrong but maintained that if they establish something it must be true because they all agreed to it.

    Mind boggling...
