Is the Instruction in the Bible for Us to Interpret as We Choose?

More than half of all Americans believe that the Bible was written for each person to interpret as he or she chooses. This finding comes from a study by LifeWay Research to assess the state of American theology.1

The apostle Peter, however, tells us in 2 Peter 1:20–21 that “no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”

People are uncertain when it comes to the truth of God’s Word.

This is why it’s so important for Truth For Life to have a bold voice into our theologically uncertain culture, and why Truth For Life invests in delivering Alistair’s teaching through every popular channel possible—channels like radio, YouTube, Instagram, Amazon Alexa, Spotify, and Apple TV.

The cost to keep pace, however, is substantial. It’s your financial and prayerful partnership that enables God’s Word to reach millions each day in a lifesaving way.

As we anticipate pressing on in 2020, will you make a generous year-end investment in Truth For Life so that those seeking truth can come to know exactly what the Bible says and what it means—through whatever device they choose?

Thank you.
