Dialogue Questions: Interpreting God’s Word to Fit Our Views

bible 1

How do you interpret the Word of God? Why is it that so many people have varying opinions on the meaning of the text.

I am a United Methodist. As you may know we are having a BIG discussion about what are the roles of homosexuals within our church. There are about 6 verses in the Bible that discuss homosexuality. And pro and con, both sides of the argument, use the same scriptures to prove their points.

It has made me considerwhere am I interpreting the Word of God to fit my own view and lifestyle?

I honestly don’t know if I will get many comments on this one. Perhaps some soul searching is all that this calls for today. But if you are brave– I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Until Next Time~
Blessings, Kate
