Just because they are a scholar and have doctorates, I included, does not mean we should take their understanding as gospel truth. We have gotten to
a point in that we take scholars at their word and not by God's word.
I like to check what a man teaches by the preserved word of God. I believe that it is the Authorized Version.
Remember Paul applauded the Bereans as being more noble than those of another city because they searched the Scriptures daily to see if what Paul was
teaching is true to the word of God.
Ac 17:11 These 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.
I read very few books any more by so called Biblical Scholars, when I was younger in the Lord, I read a lot of their works with readiness of mind, but
it wasn't until 12 years later that I began to search the scriptures to see whether the things they spoke were so.
I encourage checking them out, see if they are using Biblical terms and not terms some eloquent speaker coins to show how intelligent they are and
lead people astray.
