Scripture, lets take the Bible as an example since everyone has an opinion on it. a) Is it the exact word of God, word for word? Even the translations? Everyone of them? OR is it the inspired word of God? If so, does the individual person reading it read what the person needs to read? Always? b) Did the authors have a specific message in their texts they wanted to spread? Is it relevant to know this? Is it possible to know this? c) Are reading the analysis of others relevant to coming to an understanding and/or opinion on a topic? Yes, no, why?
