Theme Scripture: 2 Peter 3:16-17
Christians who believe that the Bible is God’s inspired Word have long recognized that Bible study requires interpretation. And it is no surprise that there are have been differences among students of the Bible about what various texts mean. One of the major areas of interpretation and difference is the question about if the Bible is to be understood literally or symbolically. It is a question we need to consider seriously if we truly want to learn what God has placed in His Word for us to know. It cannot be a matter of preference! It must be a commitment to seek the truth in full submission to God’s will.
