Brother, I can't tell whether you understood what I said about the word "study" meaning to endeavour, not to study like one studies in school. It is SUCH an important thing to understand and let it correct our wrong understanding of that.
When you don't look to the text in context as the final word, personal biases will be thought to be the Spirit. Strange and false doctrines come from not studying the Bible but going only by feelings and personal revelations.
Yes we can look at context as we are seeking the Lord for His mind/understanding. We are to read the bible, the whole of it, and let the Lord GIVE the understanding. Not leaning on our own understanding, but allowing Him to give light to our understanding. We just have it not of our own but RECEIVE understanding by FAITH....faith is in spirit, of His Spirit, it is not of our own.
