The problem is (according to the Bible) “spiritual things” are taught by the Holy Ghost and NOT by man, and so, although students who attend Bible schools may acquire a lot of KNOWLEDGE about the Bible; church history; etc.; - they CANNOT acquire spiritual DISCERNMENT, UNDERSTANDING, or WISDOM, from a school (or those who teach) since these “spiritual things” CANNOT be taught by men!
That hit me hard. Not because I believe I have so much knowledge about the Bible, but because I actually have been praying for wisdom, understanding, and especially DISCERNMENT from God. I really do not want to be "tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine".
Thank you for explaining the important keys simply, brother George. It makes my heart bit lighter in question to what should I do to study the Bible.
