It's en vogue to allow ourselves and other Christians to interpret Scripture whichever way we see best -- or even to say that we just "can't know" God's view on hard subjects. However, we are commanded to rightly handle the word of truth -- suggesting there are right and wrong ways to interpret the Bible.
I appreciate conversations with other believers that remind me we have a responsibility to correctly read and apply the Scripture. This verse always makes me ask God for grace to address all errors in interpretation -- my own and others':
"Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth." - II Timothy 2:1
