The study of the principles of interpretation concerning the books of the bible is referred to as biblical hermeneutics. There are many principles involved such as: Historical, Grammatical, Breach, Moral, First Mention and Predictive, to name just a few. If you're into it then go study it. There is enough written to keep you occupied indefinitely. Frankly, I'm not interested. From my vantage point, no matter how much you study, look into history, understand the language it was written, compare it with other verses, it's still nothing but your human interpretation and view. Your knowledge, degrees and agreement with others in your field of study don't impress me; or should I say they are impressive but this does not translate for me to ultimate truth.
It is estimated that there are 4,200 religions in the world. There are approximately 41,000 Christian denominations. But your interpretation is the right one?
I am completely done with religion. I can no longer listen to man's interpretation of the mysterious, the unknown and the divine. My path is unknown but it is free.
“Re-examine all you have been told. Dismiss what insults your soul.”
