A Note On Interpretation, Especially of the Biblical Kind
There is a statement being discussed among some of my fellow bloggers:
“I’m gettin’ real tired of all this postmodernist-relativistic-thought-applied-to-Christianity b—-sh—. Knock. it. the. hell. off. You don’t get to interpret the Bible based on your *feelings* or things you think the Holy Spirit told you that don’t line up with what the Bible actually, clearly says. There’s such a thing as absolute truth and you don’t get to screw with it.”
There are a few statements here that need to be addressed in relation to interpretation.
What does the Bible actually, clearly say?
You have to interpret based on your “feelings” (prejudices, etc.)
