Remember, knowledge puffs up, so you need to have as little of it as possible (1 Cor. 8:1). In addition, many of these â€œscholarsâ€ use un-American languages like Greek and Hebrew to make their points, so itâ€™s not wise to trust them. A lot of them are also Democrats.
You donâ€™t want anything standing between the pure Word of God and your brain. These various â€œscholarlyâ€ works tend to overly complicate things, when interpreting a document over 2,000 years old should be extremely simple. The Bible, written in itâ€™s unadulterated English form, should be all you need. Preferably the King James Version.
