Checks and Balances

I was studying Romans 6 this afternoon.  I was deeply impressed by something there.  I wrote out a short paragraph about what I saw.  I then called a close friend and read it to him.

Why?
How can we keep from error in our understanding of the Word?  Thoughts at DTTB.

I wanted him to think through the passage with me.  I wanted him to question me on what I wrote.  I need the examination.  I need someone to challenge what I see in the Scripture.  I do not have all of the gifts.  I do not have a corner on truth.  I need others in the Body to listen critically to what I find and process my conclusions through their understanding of the Word.

Not doing that, not seeking that, is what breeds error.
