The first place we must look for rules of interpretation is the text itself. We do this with every literary work. For instance, if we want to properly appreciate a poetic composition we make an effort to discover the rhythm, recognize the symbolism and so on. If we seek to interpret a work of prose we search the text to determine the philosophical assumptions of the writer and uncover clues to his intent.

The point is, we always look to the text first in order to understand the work. Just so with the Bible.Benedict XVI – The Eighth German Pope in History

In my city, the secret code is that counselor = case manager. Several years and a lot of loose change spent at Northeastern Illinois University to the contrary, most of my life is spent managing special education cases, and the people thereof.Laws of Science Vs Laws of Faith
Assume, just for a moment, that there is such an omnipotent, all knowing, creator, who can hear every word you say even if you only think it. How do you suppose would be the best way to contact Him. The laws of science do not apply to the laws of faith and vice versa. Science is based on testable repeatable experiments that can be proven over and over again.
