Now that we have the completed Bible (the full Word of God) we can interpret all of it from the perspective of its fullness.
Part of what hinders us in getting at the Truth is traditional interpretations formed from partial revelation. Add to that humanist traditions / interpolations / opinions which cause division, and you pretty much see the modern day landscape in the Body Christian. Division, majoring in the traditions of men, minoring in the Truth, religious costumes and pomp and regalia and goofy rites and rituals...
Friends and brethren...
These are not what God wants from us or for us!
These are not the courts of final arbitration that we have made them into. Only the Bible is.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NASB95)
16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;
17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
John 17:17 (NASB95)
17 “Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.
Acts 17:11 (NASB95)
11 Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.
And we are to prove all things / test all things 1 Thessalonians 5:21 / test the spirits (even what we think is the Holy Spirit) 1 John 4:1 by the Bible:
2 Peter 1:20-21 (NASB95)
20 But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation,
21 for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
God has first and final say.
