For Christians who believe only God can help you to understand the true meanings in the Bible.. How do you account for other Christians who share that view but who disagree about other important understandings in the scriptures?
Some devout Christians believe that only God can help you to understand His word, the Bible. We’ll call this group of devout believers Group A.
Not all the Christians in Group A have come to the same conclusions about what the Bible’s word means. Some differences between believers in Group A include topics like:
– Who will or won’t make it to a positive afterlife
– What is God’s true plan for humanity (and/or life in general)
– Whether Jesus was God himself
– Whether the creation story was literal or not
– Whether to participate in politics
– How many wives a man can have
– the list goes on..
Regardless of who you ask, the most scholarly of the representatives within Group A will have bible scriptures and other historical references to pit against one another’s views to support why it is that one set of conclusions is more evidently God’s true meaning or not.
Many disagreeing parties within Group A will say that the other views in the group are lacking God’s true blessing to help them understand the Bible more accurately.
How do you personally account for the differences in belief between Group A Christians?
