The Abuse of Lexicons and Dictionaries
Nevertheless, a much easier path is available! One that doesn't include a hasty submersion of the mind into Hebrew and Greek, as this can cause men to lose sight of what is known or can be certainly determined by the English that is provided. Just read the English, memorize it, and live it! Only then will you be able to discern what advantages are to be gained through understanding the original languages. On the contrary, many overly righteous Christians of the 21st century aspire to shoulder the burden of a scholar because they feverishly idolize intelligence (Eccl. 7:16). This is a different path. The whole process defers the hope of earnest new believers who are hungry for the truth, and over time, it produces doubt in them on whether they will ever come to understand what is certainly meant by any Scripture in question! Instead, they should be basking in the light of a sufficient translation of the Bible in English with childlike faith and sincerity.
