Into Thy Word -
What is the Into Thy Word Method?
Into Thy Word is geared toward challenging you to learn how to better study the Bible! We seek to teach people to use logic induction, reasoning and good inductive and deductive principles by examining the particulars, facts and essence of a text first before making any conclusions. Thus, to lead a mature, meaningful, fruitful, character driven life for Christs glory!
We are dedicated to teach you how to study the Bible in a simple, clear, and concise way!
We feel that the improper use of exegetical methodologies will skew our understanding of God and His precepts leading us to an improper life and false teachings. One should always seek the meaning from the actual original languages (and/or use multiple Bible translations and compare to other passages, do some research) and context and also what it meant to the intended audience then compare it to other passages to find the authentic meaning. This is proper exegesis. What we do not want to do is seek a meaning from our agendas, preconceived theories or our modern vernaculars, theological agendas or hearsays¾because you will skew the intent that God has for us¾that is reading into the text what God is not saying to us!
Many misguided interpreters read into a Bible text, stringing together other passages out of context to create a grand theology out of injudicious reading and insert ideas that are not in the passages. What could be the causes and motivations for this? Why are we called to read His Word with exegesis, or a right explanation and analysis of the text from what is actually in it? We believe many people seek what they want and not what He has for us!
Reading into a text what isnt there. Interpreting it by different rules than a consistent understanding from the Bible is irreverence and heresy at best blasphemy at worst. Using a presupposition to arrive at the meaning, by ignoring the language and culture it was used in just makes false teaching and weak ineffective Christians that leads to a dead church.
Check out: Acts ; 2 Corinthians 4:2; 2 Timothy and see how God wants us to study His Word!
