Every Christian sect has their own interpretation, but much of doctrine IS the same.
Tamara you will find that there are so many denominations and they all have different beliefs.
The Doctrins are not the same.
There are people who worship satan .thats not common or healthy.
Who cares what Bible says? Can't ALL see "Religion" has misled? Bible (GOD) said "WAIT" for "HELP" Which has "ONE MIND" & tells ALL "SAME!" Why there r 33000+ denominations in US! MOST didn't "WAIT!" Not "With ONE Accord!"
The bible is special that it will simply not be interpreted on our own knowledge.but it has to be granted by transmission of his spirit power into our minds or thoughts to clearly decifer what is being said of its message.
That is why just picking up the bible reading it has different meanings and conclusions many not granted decifer of spirit.
Simply The Heavenly Father chooses who he wants to undestand what he has transmitted through the pages of the bible.
1Cor 1:27 simple says he chooses. We can not chose him first. We can accept his invitation by continued education in properly learning the truth and applying what we learn .also making adjustments when we see we are offending him by our actions and way of living. Then we certainly be happy and satified no longer searching for the truth because we have will have it. You will know the truth and the truth will set you free
not true-- the Holy Spirit will teach ALL TRUTH to any Holy Spirit filled Christian that pursues TRuTH
If the Holy Spirit lead to ALL TRUTH, the Holy Spirit, cannot present any other interpretation, than the Jews saved first, but must obey the laws. Salvation from the law is offered through Jesus Christ. Gentiles are not under the law.
Paris charlie speaks the truth here.
The Jews were first preached to as the lost sheep of Isreal. Then when completed the same truth was preached to Gentiles. That would be us. The point is Jehovah is a God of order.
K&T: "Continued education?" U defy Scripture (Prov 3:5)! Why do you need the Holy Spirit IF "you" cont ed & apply?" You speak out of both sides of your mouth! Hypocrite! U don't care what the Bible says! HE "leads" into ALL Truth!"
In the old testament, God has a chosen people - the descendants of Abraham. They were in slavery in Egypt and taken out of slavery by Moses. In the wilderness, they were given the commandments and laws. They were all killed by God in the wilderness for not obeying His words.
In the New Testament, Jesus came to save the lost sheep of Israel. He spoke in parables. Sometimes, He had to interpret the parables to the disciples in private. A lot of people merely followed Jesus for the healing.
In Galatians, again, there is a dispute among the new converts whether one must be circumcised or not. Apparently, circumcision was merely to identify the Jews, who were to be saved first, and not a necessary process for the Gentiles.
These disputes take place in the Bible itself, so how can we correctly interpret the bible.
Correct interpretation is about being a part of a group, and defending the message that the group preaches.
Could you explain that last sentence. It would seem a correct concept is a personal relationship not a group concept.
the only correct interpretation is ONLY available to Holy Spirit filled Christians. It is not thru any group. Those that are HS Filled are a part of the Kingdom of God, which is the church of Jesus Christ. People not institutions, buildings or
To answer the question about the last sentence, I have to go to the book of Galatians. A believer is going to be challenged about his/her interpretation. If you are part of a group, the leader will challenge you to stick to the church's teachings.
And Paris you are correct we are not fleshly Jews .but we are Jesus followers in the truth. The Jews had to accept Jesus or they would keep umder the Mosiac laws .by now those who have not accepted Jesus has rejected Jehovah's arrangement to live.
"Jesus came to save lost sheep of Israel." NOT TRUE (Gal 3:28)!
"..how can we correctly interpret bible?" JESUS sent HELP (Jn 14:26;16:13) & asked us 2 "WAIT" for HIM (Acts 1:4)!
"Corr REV" comes fm HELP "IF" we "WAIT!"
Eric: Group "W/ONE ACCOR
What is correctly, Bro? It is natural for the child to cry; to wet his nappies ....we don't do this, hopefully, but was the child wrong? I know over 300 different sects in Christianity alone, yet alone elsewhere!
Life is an evolutionary ladder, and human beings are at different levels. Should I see God like Jesus did? Do I have the capacity of a Theresa of Avila or a John of the Cross? Why should we all be the same?
Diversity is the order of the day and encourages Creation to function. I repeat that it is God's world, not ours. There are so may Masters; so few disciples!
Always an excellent idea to ask what one needs to know; to be humble like a blade of grass, to be accommodating, open to new ideas. We do not know it all, and this Creation is self-transcending anyway. Much Peace.
you are still spreading your false gospels. there is ONLY ONE WAY, that is through the blood of Christ.of Jesus Christ the Son of God.
spread you foolishness elsewhere
Charlie you are correct.but only it is the Father who gives Holy spirit or his active force to help some one understand his terms.
Not all people who claim to have it have it.
Thats clear according to the fruit they bear of its tree. Good or rotten
Man: Why do u even respond to such Q's? What "Holy Spirit" when u worship "idol?" That's man made spirit! Have u READ II Kgs 17:29;32-41? READ TRUTH!
II Kgs is what u've done!
Exd 20:3! READ!
Manitatita you are a very kind and expressive persom who speaks in a beautiful way. Some people can not understand your art of expressions .I appreciate you very much.We all differ in our religious beliefs some times attack. But faith is persecution
K&T you too are an "Unbeliever" if you think it's OK to "...differ in our religious beliefs!"
Give Scripture that says so or you are a LIAR & cont to "lead GOD'S sheep astray" (Jer 23:1)!
Jesus knows what I am and Jehovah knows what I am
They have known me from birth . you only know me from the internet or HP .never seen me niether. So it does not matter what you think or say . Sad that you think it matters it don't.
Yes Jehovah does know what you are - A LIAR - when you can't prove with HIS WORD "ALL Religions are acceptable!"
Now "prove" or you "lead HIS sheep astray" by LYING!
Prove to you what Jehovah and Jesus know already.
Who are you. If you were on their level you would not be down here with the rest. You would be up there with them. So no one has anything to prove to you.
You think you are God. Sad!
Prove to "his sheep" what u say is true! You can't & therefore LIE! One MUST "prove" w/WORD! It's not what "we" thk or "feel" but what HE SAID or LIARS (Rm3:4)! U don't blv HS (Acts 1:8)? Sad!
HS filled="Christ" (Rm 8:10)! We r "gods" (Ps 8:26)
Jehovah and Jesus are in the spirit realm of heaven . We are on earth we are not Gods. Gods realm is heaven in spirit form.
You have talked your own self into mental confusion and think you are god.
You continue to show "YOU DON'T CARE WHAT'S IN BIBLE" you are right (Ps 8:26)! You are the most "prideful" woman! GOD HATES PRIDE (Prov 8:13)! I see why you can LIE so easily "You try & prove you are always "right" (Prov 16:18)!

Appropriate translation of the original manuscripts is a key element, but unfortunately, even translation of these requires some liberties in interpretation of contextual elements of the Bible necessary for translation, making it difficult to objectively say "this is correct" and "this is not."
Over the years I have been studying and translating the Bible, I have found that several interpretations of passages in the Bible are both logical and entirely possible, depending on one's understanding of Biblical context. There is no way to objectively validate any of them, so we have to go with our best educated "guess."
There are some interpretations that appear to be more accurate than others based upon a variety of factors, but each person will interpret even the most basic passage differently. The more I study, the more I find that there are truly as many religions (or perhaps "belief systems") as there are people.
Very well said and right. But also you would find some valid infomation that you have just mention on Jw.org You have to admit language plays a large part of intepetation. We have over 200 hundred languages you can read the bible in. Notice.
Very true, Kiss and Tales. There are three original languages, and MANY different languages into which it is translated, and then still MANY different versions in the SAME language.
Who cares WHAT Bible says? If "Holy Spirit" will "lead & guide into ALL(diff translations, adds/deletes, etc) truth" (Jn 14:26;16:13) why waste"YOUR"time (Prov 3:5)? Either u don't BELIEVE r "prideful!"
Whose intellect exceeds GOD'S? R U "crazy?
Who cares WHAT is in the Bible (Isaiah 5:20)? So far, "no not one" (Romans 3:10) on HubPages!
The Bible (WORD) can ONLY be "revealed" by the Holy Spirit for "interpretation" is of men (Proverbs 3:5)! Isaiah 53:1 says "Who hath BELIEVED our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD "revealed?"
Poor JESUS! HE "DIED," Promised HE would send us "HELP" (aka Holy Spirit), in John 14:26 and 16:13, sent "The Promise" in Acts 2:2 (for HE doesn't LIE; Numbers 23:19) and although we SAY we "BELIEVE" (Hypocrites!), continue to use "our" intellect because "I have a brain," and "think" we are MORE INTELLIGENT than the CREATOR!
Did not GOD ask us to "Lean not to "your own" (our brain/men's brain) understanding" (Proverbs 3:5)? Are we so "prideful" (I John 2:16) that we can't do as HE asked us to in II Chronicles 7:14 which says "If MY PEOPLE, which are called by My Name, shall "HUMBLE" themselves, and PRAY, and SEEK MY FACE, and TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, "THEN" will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." But who cares?
One can NEVER receive "correct interpretation" of the Bible but "revelation" from the Holy Spirit (aka JESUS) and ONLY when they have done as HE "commanded" in Acts 1:4 which says "And being assembled together with them, COMMANDED them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but "WAIT" for "THE PROMISE" of the Father, which, saith he, YE HAVE HEARD FROM ME!" Did we not hear HIM "Promise" the Holy Spirit (HELPER) in John 14:26 and 16:13 Who HE sent in Acts 2:2? Did HE not say HE would "reveal" understanding in Isaiah 53:1? But who cares WHAT is in the Bible?
Now you know why there are 33000+ denominations in the US! MOST "think" they are smarter than GOD!
LORD have Mercy!
One of the central axioms of Reformed Theology is that one must allow "Scripture to interpret Scripture." This simple idea testifies to the fact that because the Bible is divinely inspired, God won't contradict Himself, nor will He reveal what is false. So, the whole must interpret the part. Individual verses must therefore be considered in the context of what came before it, what came after it, and how it fits in with the Bible as a whole.
There is kind of weird thought that arises here. One can read the Bible and be transformed through it. It is a powerful instrument. Through humanly effort one can find the gifts of God contained in the Bible.
When the Holy Spirit "reveals," IT doesn't "contradict" nor is IT "out of context."
You've gone to school to be taught what Holy Spirit has been doing all the time!
Has "Reformed Theology" taught you to live according to New Covenant?
Indeed, the Scriptures are divinely inspired and that inspiration animates a believers understanding of God's Word by actually reading it. Any theology does its job well if it compels you to stick to what God says and not what people may think.
Well, n that case did GOD not SAY to "observe the disciples" (Matt 28:20), "WAIT" (Acts 1:4) for HELP (Jn 14:26) fm Holy Spirit, be baptized in JESUS' name (Acts 2:38), cont n the apostles' doctrine (Acts 2:42) or "ACCURSED" (Gal 1:6-9)?
