Author's Note:

     The MAIN cause of misunderstandings concerning the Bible and its interpretation:

The proud but finite human mind thinking that it is capable of comprehending the

profundity of the Bible- which is an explanation of the infinite God. Also, bear in mind that nothing should be interpreted by itself: out of context. Every verse is a part of a cohesive whole- the Bible in its entirety.

     Applied practically there are fundamental mistakes made with respect to interpretation due to the following: Some sentences and passages are allegorical, some are literal only, and some are both. If you mistakenly interpret an allegorical part as literal, then you misinterpret it.

     For instance: "Behold the lamb of God" does not mean that the person spoken of (Jesus) is literally a young offspring of a sheep. This phrase is allegorical- with a meaning which is voluminous in content.

     The 6-day account in Genesis chapters1-2 is NOT a literal account of creation. It is an allegorical account depicting the relationship between the spirit of God, light, and life. If you erroneously take it as being literal, the order of formation of the six different categories of life described in it are NOT in the same chronological order as their sequence in the fossil record. Square peg, round hole.
