1. A student interested in truth must view entire texts and not selected pieces. Refusing to consider this rule necessary will engender many errors. Devotionals teach devoted students to err in this way.
2. Texts often ‘presuppose’ other texts that pertain to the same topic. It is a great error to assume that a text stands alone and can be disconnected. (Many texts ‘assume’ that readers have already read and understood the basics found in the first books of the Bible.)
3. No matter what one may already doctrinally believe, the Scriptures are not intended to be a volume for proving one’s own point! (Rather, one’s doctrines must always be subject to the Scripture’s correction.)
“Yet I am certain that Yehovah designed the Bible so that folks who love error and will not believe the Truth can construct their error from the Bible”.
