The Bible is not of private interpretation.

(Lori: This means that you can study it and understand it for yourself, with the help of the Holy Spirit.)

    You do not need a preacher or priest to tell you what it means.  Your pastor is there to help you grow, but you are encouraged to always compare what your pastor teaches to what the Bible is actually saying.  If someone contradicts the Word of God, they are wrong.

(Lori: Number 20, what does 2 Peter 1:19 call the Word of God?)

-A more sure word of prophecy-

-A pool of cool water-

-A rock of offense-

-A two-edged sword-
