    I don't when it became popular for every one to have their own interpretation of scripture. What is the definition of interpretation any way? When 50 people read the ten commandments they will all have their own "INTERPRETATION". My question does not actually pertain to the ten commandments but scripture as a whole. When and where does this cross the line, from Gods'perspective?

      Its normal as humans are on different vibration or consciousness levels and will interpret it according to their level.Each will go to a different depth.
      From god perspective- many are in that vibration to pick it up but only an enlightened one or knower of god can relate with it in totality.

    I don't think it's so much interpretation, it's individuals making a god they can be comfortable with. Saying "my god does not have wrath" even though it clearly says "God's wrath, in this final sense, is not aimed to improve and make holy, but to destroy and eternally judge. God disciplines those He loves, for the good (1 Pet 4:17-19). True followers of Christ need have no fear of God's wrath. It is being "stored up", and is about to be directed toward those who reject God's revelation of Himself." or my fav "My god is all love and I can do whatever I want." Even though that logic completely goes against Christ's teachings. Eze 18:21,30 (NIV) "Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign Lord. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?... Repent! Turn away from all your offenses; then sin will not be your downfall."

    God created us! No matter how much that we want to, we can not recreate God changing him into a Furby doll making us more confortable. God is who He is. We do all have diffrent levels of understanding on many subjects. The theory of relativity for instance. I understand very little of it. Therefore it would be acceptable for me to interpret it, changing the theory in my mind, becoming more confortable with it, But in the end  Everything will still be relative!!!

      God may have created you. He obviously missed creating quite a few of we non-believers.

      We have different perceptions / interpretations which is why we argue in Forums. smile Had we been enlightened, there would have been no scope for verbal fights / disagreements in the world. We live in our own small worlds with self created walls around us. That's why we hear ourselves saying so often..."It might be good for you but not for me." Mohit rightly mentioned that we exist on different levels of consciousness which is why we perceive things differently. 'Two enlightened souls would seldom have disagreements'. Well, you can have two different connotations to this statement (two enlightened...) also.

      1. Great men think alike
      2. Fools seldom differ.
