Interpreting the bible

The bible is there to be read by anyone.  You don’t need anybody to interpret it for you, just as we don't need anyone to interpret life for us!  Every interpretation will be colored by the prejudices of the interpreter.  I don't think there is a person alive who can claim to have an objective perspective on the matter.

If the path to God lies in the heart then we must read spiritual literature with an open heart and allow our heart wisdom to do the interpreting for us!
