Christian literature is open to interpretation and has been subjected to exactly that, intensively and passionately so, for about 2,000 years.
Yes, it has come from interpretation by imperfect men.
Is not God's Word superior and preferable?
(2 Peter 1:20, 21) For you know this first, that no prophecy of Scripture springs from any private interpretation. 21 For prophecy was at no time brought by man’s will, but men spoke from God as they were moved by holy spirit.
So maybe we should see what He says.
We no doubt would find more sucess as individuals and Nations.
(Isaiah 48:17) This is what Jehovah says, your Repurchaser, the Holy One of Israel: “I, Jehovah, am your God, The One teaching you to benefit yourself, The One guiding you in the way you should walk.
