I want my children to understand our scriptures intellectually, but I am more concerned that they feel their power and recognize their source. I like the individual focus of scriptural understanding in the Church - the lack of formal, official interpretation - the fluidity inherent in our "as far as it is translated correctly" mentality. I love to learn from many in the Bloggernacle, but I also love that, in the end, I can't cede my understanding to them - that it is left to me to construct my own, unique perspective.
In the end, I am responsible for my own understanding and feeling regarding the scriptures.
