We live in a world filled with LIES! All of us have been influenced by these lies, there is no one who stands immune. That is because we have an adversary who is a liar from the beginning and the author of lies. Please understand, he wants to destroy us with His lies.
Our heavenly Father wrote us a book, but its so much more than a book! It is a love letter - to counteract those lies and teach us the truth. The truth will set us free from those lies and the subsequent bondage that those lies produce. That is why we need to understand how to read this love letter.
We must be very careful when reading the Bible and especially when teaching it, to let the scriptures "speak out" (exegesis) instead of us "speaking in" to them (eisegesis). It is very important to let God say what He says instead of us speaking for Him. He tells it like it is, even if it makes us uncomfortable.
The reality is that for most of us what we need to hear is going to make us uncomfortable because we have become so accustomed to the lies that have been sown into our lives.
