4 Errors to avoid when reading the Bible

1) Jumping from reading the Bible to personal application with finding the original meaning.
2) Opening the Bible at random and taking that as God's word for you today.
3) Failing to understand the context.
4) Failing to understand the type of literature (e.g., poetry, prophecy, epistle, etc.).

(George Guthrie in ch 1 of "Read the Bible for Life")
