Hi,
Greetings from Oregon, USA. My name is Stephen. I am an upholsterer by trade (for 40 plus years). I work out of my house. My wife helps me with the customers and also homeschools our 13 year old son and has finished homeschooling our 19 year old daughter.

I am also the webmaster for several website, one for my upholstery business, one where I write articles for people who want to learn upholstery, and other website about faith and life principles.

I was doing some research on the Internet and found your article titled "Does the Bible apply to us today?" I appreciated your approach to the Bible, of not accepting everything blindly, but thinking, studying and reasoning:

Zerich wrote:How can we know what parts of the Bible apply to us today?"

Proper biblical interpretation is built on the following principles:

1. Context. To understand fully, start small and extend outward: verse, passage, chapter, book, author and testament/covenant.
2. Try to come to grips with how the original audience would have understood the text.
3. Consider the width of the chasm between us and the original audience.
4. It’s a safe bet that any moral command from the Old Testament that is
repeated in the New Testament is an example of a ‘timeless truth.’
5. Remember that each passage has one and only one correct interpretation,
but can have many applications (some better than others).
6. Always be humble and don’t forget the role of the Holy Spirit in
interpretation. He has promised to lead us into all truth (John 16:13).

As mentioned earlier, biblical interpretation is as much an art as it is
science. There are rules and principles, but some of the more difficult
or controversial passages require more effort than others. We should
always be open to changing an interpretation if the Spirit convicts and
the evidence supports.

Looking forward to reading and seeing more of what this forum is about.

Best Wishes,
Stephen

Stephen
