I have worked with Christians who want a step-by-step method that can get around Holy Spirit inspiration. Recently I spoke with a Christian who asked about intercession/spiritual warfare. She basically wanted a script she could use in every situation. I told her it was best to pray in spirit and press into the spiritual side to get a feel for what was happening in each situation. As I tried to explain this, I could tell she was put off. She was a task-driven person who was quite willing to follow instructions as long as the instructions were clear. She saw it as a task and not as a discovery.
Many, many Christians want to be spoon-fed the meaning of Bible passages. Even when they use lots of books to do a long process, each step of the process is spoon-fed. They assemble an interpretation the same way they assemble furniture from a box. Follow the checklist, attach Part A to Part B, and keep going until you’re done. No creativity is required. There’s comfort in this because someone else has done most of the thinking for them.
This also shows a very deep problem I have noticed with many over the years .
They don't have a real genuine GOD PUT LOVE for truth on their hearts , ELSE they would simply be LOVING to just READ that bible for themselves .
NOPE , its like with anything of this world , How can I look the wisest with the least amount of effort in the fastest amount of time .
Yet those who LOVEthe LORD , we know it takes time and we simply just LOVE to read our bibles . FOR GOD has put that LOVE on our hearts .
The stem root is the love of self versus the Love of GOD . In the eyes of the world and churches of the world , they will seem ever wise as they inwardly desire the worship and praise of men . But those who are of the LORD , DESIRE ONLY HIM to receive all HONOR even if it means they receive all dishonor from men and seem like big dummies . THEY REJOICE , cause lets face it THE TRUE LAMBS GOT ALL HOPE FOR their HOPE is in CHRIST , not in self and not in men .
This is the main problem I have with hermeneutics. Most of the elements are fine in themselves, but you can’t turn them into a worksheet. The toolbox can’t tell you which tool is best for a job.
Hermeneutics tries to force God to submit to man-made rules of literature, and that is what some proponents of hermeneutics claim God does. I was told that the Bible obeys the laws of literature, which is absurd, plus most proponents of hermeneutics break their own laws when they have to in order to defend their beliefs.
