    7 Excellent Rules for Knowledgeable Bible study!:

    1) Let ALL things be done Decently and In Order! 1 Co 14:40

    2) Study ALL Scripture Rightly Divided!:

    "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, Rightly Dividing The Word Of Truth!" ( 2 Timothy 2:15)

    3) Never add to or take away From God's Holy Word! Deu 4:2, Deu 12:32; Rev 22:18,19

    4) Be noble students: These (in Berea) were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received The Word with all readiness of mind, and searched The Scriptures daily, Whether Those Things Were So! Acts 17:11

    5) Build Sound Doctrine, God's Way!:

    a) For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little! Isa 28:10

    b) Find ALL Related Scriptures For A Specific doctrine!: ALL Scripture Is Given By Inspiration Of God, And Is Profitable For Doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto ALL good works! 2 Ti 3:16-17

    c) Compare ALL Related Scriptures to learn and know a specific doctrine!: Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but Which The Holy Ghost Teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual! 1 Co 2:13 {Comparing Scripture With Scripture!}

    6) The Best 'Interpretive' Commentary On The Bible Is: The BIBLE Itself! Never interpret the Plain Scriptures by the few difficult verses, but ALWAYS interpret the few obscure and difficult verses by ALL Of The Many Plain and Clear Passages Of God's Holy Word!

    + 1 Final Excellent Rule for Knowledgeable BIBLE study!:

    7) In order to Honor The Father And The SON John 5:22-23, in Preparation For Judgment, Always keep in mind: Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do ALL to The Glory Of God! 1 Cor 10:31

    And then we can ALL, in UNITY Of The Spirit... Eph 4:3: ...speak the things which become sound doctrine Tit 2:1 cp SAME mind And judgment 1 Co 1:9-10
  • Chris - in Reply on 2 Timothy 2
    Excellent points, brother ChrisE. Many fail because we approach the Word with preconceived notions & beliefs & then make the Word fit our beliefs. I'm often left in amazement & horror by what people can do with God's Word. But, in the end, all will be revealed as we may all have to humble ourselves before the Giver of Truth.
