all three members share co-equally and co-eternally without diminished or enhanced variance from eternity past. Subsequently, they speak in unison without confusion, without dissent, in COMPLETE HARMONY, as reflected in the text.
And so we observe the curse upon whole animal populations, but we suffer natural catastrophes as well, sometimes at great loss of life. Subsequently mankind is resentful over the curse of the earth, his own curse, and blames God when in fact man sins against God in complete compliance with his nature to do so. In effect, man wishes to sin against God and God simply allows him the opportunity to do so - and suffer the consequences. LOL…essentially fallen man learns to hate sin as much as God does, whether he likes his Creator or not!
By Way of a Brief Introduction.....
The Bible isn't about the pastor's 'theology', it's about how God demonstrates Himself first to the pastor and then to his congregation. The question is when 'the workman' opens a Bible, is he there to dictate to God his beliefs and "prove" something to someone else or is he there to learn and let God demonstrate himself to him? Apostasy attempts to prove itself to man and God, but never succeeds to validate itself.
To be sure, "A workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth", needs to work. Hermeneutics is not play, it's not entertainment, it's more work than swinging an ax or prescribing medication. It's the mindset of one who wishes to exegete the Bible to learn God's Word. There are hazards of hacking to pieces with gnostic nonsense, rationalism and presupposition. This commits the hearers to error through a poor presentation of the Word and a poor understanding of the text. Ultimately theological agendas will introduce error rendering the workman one who needs to be ashamed.
Hermeneutics protects one's scholarship and provides the academic and mental discipline to address this downside. Indeed there have been many books written on Hermeneutics, some fairly comprehensive as Milton Terry's "Biblical Hermeneutics", some fairly weak. This website is designed to build and clarify those concepts for the student of the Scriptures based upon the grammar in which the original text is found.
