Elizabeth Prata: The popular definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.” For Christians with discernment, insanity is ‘being sure by the Spirit and the Bible, after research and prayer, that so-and-so is false, but literally NO ONE ELSE around you believes it or even entertains the notion for a second.’ After a while you begin to question yourself, or you question why others can’t see it, or you question God with pleading, upraised hands, ‘why, WHY can’t they see?’ All that. The definition of discernment is also often “Agony.” It was like that for me, anyway, back in 2011-2012 when I started to question Beth Moore’s teaching.
Greg Koukl: The Bible never teaches the subjective, individualized interpretation approach….If you think God is telling you something through Scripture that is not connected to the meaning of the words in their context, it can’t be God, because he chose to communicate through language, not around it. God will not twist, distort, or redefine his own Word for our private consumption. “We cannot make [the Bible] mean anything that pleases us and then give the Holy Spirit ‘credit’ for it,” Gordon Fee and Douglas Stuart write in How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth. “The Holy Spirit cannot be called in to contradict himself, and he is the one who inspired the original intent.”
