Email Tips: Stop Correcting the Bible

This "tip" was originally delivered on Saturday, July 4th, 2009 .

Bible correcting is not Bible study.

When textual critics and Greek scholars study translation and
the ancient languages they are not involved in doctrinal study.

Your spiritual growth depends not on your study of Bible
translation but on studying the doctrine within the Bible.

When you trust the translation then you have made the
conscience choice that the Bible does not need corrected.

This will force you to study the meaning of the words and
their context instead of looking for a scapegoat through
“mistranslation”. You are free to study without doubt!

The moment you make this decision your love for study
will change; your understanding will increase; and your
life will start to stabilize on a stronger foundation.

Stop correcting and start studying.
