Whose interpretation is this?

“The next time someone says, ‘That’s just your interpretation,’ have the person read the verse and ask him how he might interpret it differently. Ask him to give reasons why he would choose one interpretation over another. Ask him if his interpretation matches what the author intended to say. The question is not, ‘Whose interpretation is this?’ but ‘Is this interpretation correct?’” Todd Friel 

2 Timothy 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    All these things that scare us away from ‘confrontation’ are so easily dealt with using logical thought. Wonderful response to that usually nasty, dismissive or even vindictive comment, Mr. Friel! Thank you Evidence Bible for having that thoughtful quote in it! Praise the Lord
