How one has studied - or not studied, valued or not valued the tested and proven Truths of God, will shape their perspectives. There are perspectives of authority and perspectives of half-baked opinions.
How one handles Scripture such as: 1). Keeping in context, or not 2). Understanding who the original text was written to 3). What the message is and 4). How we need to apply it today, will determine "perspectives." Perspectives come in all shapes and sizes, strengths and weaknesses, and like night and day. But, reliability of strength is what a serious student - verses casual inquirer, of The Word of God strives to embrace. And whose voice ultimately carries the greater value of weight? Whose voice is valued as reliable to learn from, to be taught from? Not the half-baked opinionated casual inquirer, but the well-studied.
I value the Holy Scriptures like a treasure to unfold. They are applicable for real life matters, as well as strengthening the inner man with power. They my Bread of Life, feeding my spirit while transforming me day by day. Anyone who knew my past would hardly recognize me now. The Word of God has made me "wiser than my enemies (Ps. 119:98)" and I expect even more of the same as I continue to embrace the riches of God's Word.
