Hermeneutics is the science of interpretation of the Scriptures. What are the causes of faulty hermeneutics? Things that contribute to faulty hermeneutics are proof-texting, lack of prayerful study, pride, exalting men as infallible teachers, man made tradition doctrinal influences, self-imposed ignorance and dishonesty.

FAULTY HERMENEUTICS dictates that Jesus was a sinner!

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Does this prove that Jesus was a sinner? Absolutely not.

Hebrews 4:14-15 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weakness, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet is without sin.

Jesus was not guilty of sin.----PROPER HERMENEUTICS IS THE ANSWER.

FAULTY HERMENEUTICS dictates that John the Baptist was the reincarnation of Elijah.

Matthew 11:14 And if you are willing to accept it, John himself is Elijah who was to come.

Does that Scripture prove that John the Baptist was Elijah reincarnated? No, it does not.

John 1:19-23 This is the testimony of John....21 They asked him, "What then? Are you Elijah?" And he said, "I am not."...
Luke 1:5-17...It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah....

FAULTY HERMENEUTIC  dictates that men are saved by simply believing that Jesus is the Son of God.

Acts 16:31 They said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.

Does Acts 16:31 prove that men are save by faith only. No, it does not.

The Scriptures teach that Faith  John 3:16, Repentance Acts 3:16, Confession Romans 10:9,10 and Water Baptism Acts 2:38, 1 Peter 3:21 are all essential in order to be saved.   

FAULTY HERMENEUTICS dictates that Jesus was God the Father.

Isaiah 9:6 For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

Would this Scripture prove that Jesus is God the Father? No, it would not.

Mark 13:31-32 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. 32 But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels  in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father alone.

Jesus will not know the end of time until God the Father tells Him. Jesus is not God the Father.

1 Corinthians 15:20-28....23 who are Christ's at His coming, 24 then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to God the Father.....28 When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all.

Is Jesus God? Yes, Jesus is God, but Jesus is not God the Father.-----PROPER HERMENEUTICS IS THE ANSWER.

FAULTY HERMENEUTICS dictates that men can be saved without being baptized because the thief on the cross was saved without being immersed in water. Can men today be saved without baptism. No, they cannot.

Luke 23:39-43 ....42 And he was saying, "Jesus, remember me when You come into your kingdom!" 43 And He said to him, "Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise."

Was the thief saved? Yes, the thief was saved, however, the thief was saved before the New Covenant was in force. Under the New Covenant men have to be baptized in water in order to have their sins forgiven.

Hebrews 9:16-17 For where a covenant is, there must of necessity be a death of the one who made it. 17 For a covenant is valid only when men are dead, for it is never in force while the one who made it lives.

The New Covenant, the New Testament, the New Agreement was only in effect after the death of Jesus. When Jesus was alive He forgave men of their sins for various and sundry reasons; the thief was one of those He forgave.

The terms of pardon under the New Covenant are :
FAITH (John 3:16)
REPENTANCE (Acts 2:38)
CONFESSION (Romans 10:9-10)
BAPTISM (Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16)

Can men today be saved like the thief on the cross? No.---PROPER HERMENEUTICS IS THE ANSWER.

FAULTY HERMENEUTICS=30,000 different denominations and religious groups all claiming the absolute truth? PROPER HERMENEUTICS IS THE ANSWER!

    Sadly, your blog but reveals a soul yet bound in the chains of "strong delusion" that are forged by those of this evil world and it's systems of religion(all of which emanate from the vain "imag"inations of wanna be pharisee's)!
