    As a fundie friend informed me, God grants him
    spiritual insight to discern the truth. While he won't
    admit to being infallible, he's certain that every
    other faith is the work of Satan. Except for Jews.
    They're special.

    Aye, they'd never admit to being perfect.
    But they know they're better than everyone else.

    Why study the Bible?? Let the scripture give us the answer as the scripture is its own best commentator; ''BUT CONTINUE THOU IN THE THINGS WHICH THOU HAST LEARNED AND HAST BEEN ASSURED OF, KNOWING OF WHOM THOU HAST LEARNED THEM ;AND THAT FROM A CHILD THOU HAST KNOWN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, WHICH ARE ABLE TO MAKE THEE WISE UNTO SALVATION THROUGH FAITH WHICH IS IN CHRIST JESUS. ALL SCRIPTURE IS GIVEN BY INSPIRATION OF GOD, AND IS PROFITABLE FOR DOCTRINE,FOR REPROOF, FOR INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS; THAT THE MAN OF GOD MAY BE PERFECT, THROUGHLY ,FURNISHED UNTO ALL GOOD WORKS'' 2 TIM. 3;11-17. This inspired writer gives other like exhortations.

    TO BE DEEP IN SCRIPTURE IS TO CEASE BEING CATHOLIC, PROTESTANT,, JEW AND CALVINIST

    2Tim 3:16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,

    Looks like a good enough reason to me.

    I believe I respect ancient writings for what they are.

    I believe the Bible has the words of Jesus which are the orally spoken words of God and a sure method of hearing those words in the spirit.

    I believe that is true but it is not true of the whole Bible. Certainly the Psalms are poetic.
