Spirit-led or Sound Exegesis?

22 10 2007

I’ve been helping my pastor for the last week to look through a text submitted by one of the church members, and it wasn’t an easy task. There were numerous if not the entire book, poor structure of flow in the presentation of information, plenty of grammatical errors, lack of expository notes and explanations, many examples without relevant references or probably without any references at all, and last but not least, a book that borders on personal grandeur that borders on arrogance. At the end of the exercise, I came to a few conclusions – many are not equipped with sound exegesis and hermeneutics knowledge and techniques, and even more, ill-equipped to handle such.
