Bible Doctrine is a site that emphasizes Paul’s “gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20.24), that Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15.1-4). The Corinthian passage is the clearest definition of Paul’s gospel which is the “power of salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1.16-17). The articles have been written to reveal God’s love and His wonderful salvation for all who will believe and to inform, encourage, and strengthen believers in the Christian faith and life.
Three factors are essential for correct biblical interpretation: 1) understanding that the Scriptures are God-breathed (θεόπνευστος, 2 Timothy 3.16) 2) understanding God has progressively revealed the Scriptures within a structural framework, and 3) maintaining a sound, consistent interpretative method (hermeneutic). A normal, non-symbolic or figurative, hermeneutic is essential for sound interpretation in soteriology, Christology, Israelology, ecclesiology, anthropology, pneumatology, angelology, and eschatology.
And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. — 1 Samuel 15:22
