When it comes to Biblical hermeneutics…there is one question we must always avoid. The question? “What does this passage mean to me”. We can never be the final arbiter as to the meaning of God’s Word. The correct question is: “What does this passage mean”? Our theology must not dictate our exegesis. Our exegesis must dictate our theology. Join us as we discuss the dangers of using ourselves as the filter through which we pour God’s Word.
