The Teaching Spirit
Even now there are all sorts of new doctrines emerging. Each of us must decide whom we will put our trust in: God or men. Paul Penley's training as a Bible scholar, life as a human being, and work as a philanthropic advisor overflows into this blog.
RSS Feed. Book Video Author Reviews B. Does the Holy Spirit teach you the meaning of the Bible? What is the role of the Holy Spirit in personal Bible interpretation? Yep, I'm going there. This question consistently pops up when I teach students how to interpret the Bible. Somewhere between analyzing the literary context and historical context of Bible passages, students wonder if all this work is necessary.
I have found that vague notions about the Spirit's role in guiding you toward truth translates into an excuse for undisciplined and inaccurate Bible study. If you feel the Spirit showed you a special meaning in a verse, you go with it. You excuse the need to use hermeneutical skills or check your conclusion in a community of better-trained Bible users.
And why not? Don't Challenge "My" Truth In response to my recent articles connecting individual authoritative Bible interpretation to church division , commenters derided my warning against unchecked and untrained personal Bible reading. Because it takes the authority to determine truth out of your own hands.
There's actually more to the story than just you. These opinions reflect our cultural sensibilities. The distrust of authorities and existential preference for finding truth on our own is pronounced. If the Bible provides no paradigm for us to follow, then following our cultural sensibilities is fine. I Have the Spirit so I Don't Need Teachers I still remember my first Seminary class where I encountered a lady boldly committed to the individual determination of truth.
In a discussion about the importance of teaching, she said: "I don't need a teacher because the Spirit will teach me everything I need to know. She was serious. Of course, I didn't know why she was paying for the class if she could learn it all on her own. My first thought: how could that make any sense to someone who has read the Bible? Paul and Peter made it quite clear gifted teachers had a special role in bringing the church to maturity.
Paul even appointed key teachers like Timothy and Titus to keep churches from swerving off the right track. Every epistle in the New Testament assumes Spirit-led Christians still needed direction from their spiritual fathers.
So where did she get such an incongruent idea? If the context is irrelevant, the words establish the principle regardless of surrounding material. I do understand how she arrived at her conclusion when the literary and historical context is removed. However, her mistaken doctrine could have been prevented. John was discussing the appropriate response to deceptive teachers contradicting what Christians already knew to be true. John had two problems with these teachers.
In 1 John , John mandates careful testing of the S spirit behind someone's message. It is the right Spirit if the teachers say Jesus is the Messiah sent by God as the disciples taught 1 John , If the message is different, then it is the wrong spirit. Second , John told people not to trust teachers whose life betrayed a corrupt spirituality. The Spirit of righteousness is exhibited in a righteous life.
What we learn from this first Century Jesus follower is: we judge the Spirit's involvement by the outcome and accuracy of one's teaching and character. John did not throw out all teachers because the Spirit would guide Christians into all truth. On the contrary he advocated in his letter for Christians to adhere to the message about Jesus received from trustworthy teachers! He clearly believes in the necessity of teachers to direct Christians toward maturity.
The only kind of teachers he dismisses are those who say Jesus didn't come from God and recommend other paths to experience the divine. Those guys aren't telling the truth and don't deserve your attention. Spirit-led Christians should stick to the Spiritual path they have begun. Assessing the outcomes and accuracy in a teacher's life and message about Jesus helps discern which teachers are leading you down the wrong path. Simple answer: We create a bible in the Bible. Parts of the Bible we use.
Parts we ignore. All of it we extract from its context and wrap in our assumptions. Since we value self-determination and democratic ideals, we embrace Bible extracts that resonate with our values.
We contort the part that appeals to our perspective to justify our cultural preference. Everybody selectively uses Scripture this way. Pentecostals focus on the second part: cast out demons, speak in new tongues, and heal the sick Mark We find what we are looking for. If you think proclamation is important, you find parts of the Bible to back your idea. If miraculous signs are important, you use those parts.
We build a bible within the Bible when we separate the parts from the whole to support our preferences, consciously or subconsciously. Creating your bible in the Bible is a historical Christian epidemic.
He threw out whole books when they didn't fit his perspective. Certain parts have to be contorted to fit or better avoided! Christian hedonists practice the most common form of extraction and contortion. What is the most common extract and contort technique? Take the Bible words you want and leave the rest. He longs for the world to recognize what is right. God's promise is not to give him a big house, a private plane, a Christmas cruise, 2.
But when you only extract a Bible part and wrap your preferences around it, you can make the Bible say anything you want. That's how 1 John becomes a rally cry for individualistic authoritative Bible interpretation. IQ website and free sample quiz are coming in ! The second test requires more personal observation and critical reflection. You can start by asking those around you to see if they have observed the fruit of the Spirit in you. This countercultural task is daunting.
Biblical "Extract and contort" maneuvers are foundation on which we create versions of Christianity we like. But may this reminder move us away from the partial bibles we tame to embracing the whole Bible we were given. Gregg Powers. Enter email address to receive monthly blogs: Delivered by FeedBurner.

No need for man to teach us 1 John 2:27
How do we respond to a Protestant that uses the above verse to then claim that authority is needed for proper interpretation, doctrine, etc.? First thing is that this verse has nothing to do with anything that relates to who has authority to interpret the bible. Again, they fail to take the entire book into account.
