Interpreting the world around us is a matter of common sense.
All human beings make judgments based on observation and rational testing.
One does not need to understand any hermeneutical model to use his or her powers of observation and logical reasoning.
Throughout our lives we learn by instruction example and inferences.
12 Jesus Hermeneutic
If you ask a good question about GODS will the way to find the answer is to listen to all that the Scriptures reveal on that matter.
Interpreting the Scriptures is a straightforward matter of using our common sense in the same way that we use it throughout life to make decisions.
When you ask an important question you act on the basis of the best evidence you can gather.
The issue then is whether we are asking good questions.
13 It all comes back to Jesus.
And Jesus came up and spoke to them saying
All authority has been given Me
in heaven and on earth.
(Matthew 2818 NASBU)
