I attended a conservative Bible College. Like most conservative theologians, I believe that we should read the Bible as it is and read it at face value. Read it for what it says. Do not squeeze fuzzy interpretations into what it says. And the second rule of thumb is to let the Bible interpret the Bible. As you study scripture nearly 100 % of the time, what the scriptures say in one place can be found in another place or more. Granted there are some passages which are difficult to understand. Pray that the Lord would give you understanding in those areas.
Be a Doer!
It says in James 1:22 "But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves." (King James Version)
This chapter of James talks in length about temptations. The general gist though that we need to understand is that it does you no good to read the word of God only. You and I also need to apply the Word of God into our lives. Otherwise it is worthless. You may as well throw your Bible away if you do not be a doer. Be a doer, follow the words of God and be obedient to God. Then and only then will you have freedom and victory .
Dig Into God's Word!
The Main Message of Scripture
Take the Scriptures to Heart!
The Instruction Book
Why did God give us the Bible?
Go for it. Study, learn and meditate and pray.
The Word of God
We all need to be spending lots of quality time reading and studying the Bible. When we do we draw much closer to Him. A few minutes here and there just does not cut it. Its like going to school and taking only a few minutes a day learning a subject. You'll never be proficient at that subject if you only spend a few minutes a day. So jump in and get saturated in His Word. You won't regret it.
