rightly dividing the word

Stand To Reason's Greg Koukl brings to us a brief essay on scriptural understanding.

"We need to look at 2 Timothy 3:16-17 that says, “All Scripture is inspired by God…” That word for Scripture is “graphe” in the Greek, which means “writing”.  Notice what it is that is inspired.  Paul is telling Timothy that it is the writings that are inspired, that is, the words. That’s why we are told to attend to the “Words” and not to try to attend to some “spiritual” impulse or sense that we are getting while we are reading the words.  Therefore, if you cannot justify your interpretation from the words themselves then your interpretation is NOT from the Holy Spirit. Period."
