Yes but, that is why I am asking who he was. There is rarely a speaker without an opinion on what he reads from scripture. Why that is is because they have to make scripture fit their ideas/agenda; the context in which they place their confidence. None escape this who are without Holy Spirit insight and relying solely upon seminary credentials or otherwise popular recognition for credibility. Baptists come easily to mind.
Yes, this is so very true. Sadly to say, I never held in great regard most preachers. Bible study teachers are easier to get a handle on, since it usually takes some time to get the gist of their personal agenda, if they have one. Many bible study courses are also greatly slanted and I find that so frustrating, I do not return. :wazzup:
