Jeremiah 8:8

Jeremiah 8:8 How can you say, 'We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us'? But behold, the lying pen of the scribes has made it into a lie.

How has the research, writing and teaching of professionals changed the word of the Lord in our eyes? Do we read it for what it is - God's word - or do we filter it through various streams of tradition and commentators so that it is no longer the word of the Lord?

Now that is an interesting and challenging question. I know for myself that I can tend to lean towards teaching that fits my personal view point so try hard to keep a balanced view and diet of teaching. Here is where the Anglican church system can lead people into trouble as they often only hear the vicar and occasionally a.n.other. I know from personal experience that being too long in a church where 'everyone gets to heaven' and 'you can choose Jesus after you die' teaching is ripe has had a serious effect on my own zeal and drive to evangelistic activities, after all what's the point if we're all going to make it. The 'outrageous grace' concept has similar dangers to it. I think we need to remember Jesus who originally taught us what we know about hell and our need of salvation and who he was preaching it to at the time, HIS disciples. Surely that means it is as relevant to us today?
