    Tozer on the Purpose of Bible Exposition

    But exposition may be carried on in such way as to leave the hearers devoid of any true spiritual nourishment whatever. For it is not mere words that nourish the soul, but God Himself, and unless and until the hearers find God in personal experience they are not the better for having heard the truth. The Bible is not an end in itself, but a means to bring men to an intimate and satisfying knowledge of God,

    that they may enter into Him, that they may delight in His Presence, may taste and know the inner sweetness of the very God Himself in the core and center of their hearts.

    Tozer, A.W.. The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer (Special Kindle Enabled Edition with Interactive Table of Contents and Built in Text to Speech Features) (Illustrated) ... | The Writings of Aiden Wilson Tozer of) . Christian Miracle Foundation Press. Kindle Edition.

    The Title should have said the "Limits" of Bible exposition...there is a way deeper objective at stake here.

    I'm sure there's a lot of 'theologians' and people that know the Word of God backwards and forwards, and not even saved. Jesus said to the Pharisees that you search the scriptures and you think you have eternal life in them and here I am standing before you and you don't even recognize me.

    And those that have another Trinity: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Bible.
