The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.
– Psalm 119:130 (NIV)

You don’t have to be a scholar to understand the Bible, for the Scripture is a portal that reveals itself to us. This is not to diminish the need for scholarship, but that is not where wisdom starts. It starts when we approach the Bible with faith that God will use His words to open our mind. When we do, God answers with amazing insight that can cause the simplicity of the gospel to confound the wisdom of this earth.
