I was taught from an early age that we don’t interpret scripture, but “scripture interprets itself”. Years later I finally learned that the phrase being preached should really have been “scripture interprets itself, but only if it agrees with what we believe”. There is a lens we are born into and lens we create for ourself. I love that you used the phrase “by their fruit you shall know them”, and to add on, what a person ignores is sometimes more telling than what a person expends energy on.
