Hermeneutics - Pitfall of Generalizing - Nov 24, 2014

One of the most common mistakes people make in biblical hermeneutics is to assume that an event or promise recorded in Scripture is to be considered normative for Christians today. The Apostle Paul went to Heaven so why can't we? People were being healed in the New Testament and even the dead were being raised so why shouldn't we expect these things today? Many have made Jeremiah 29:11 their life verse and churches put this verse on their signs outside so this promise applies to us, right? Well, not so much. In today's program we will discuss the pitfall of Generalizing so that we can steer clear of this common trap and, thereby, have a better understanding and appropriation of God's Word in our lives.
