  Common Pitfalls of Youth Studying
  the Bible
  • Looking past the obvious for the
     hidden.
  • Failure to consider the historical in
     rushing to application.
  • Narrow vision. (All scripture is true
     all the time.)
  • Lack of discernment as to what is
     cultural and what is eternal.
  • Lack of respect for God’s Word.
     (God’s Word means what it
     means, regardless of our beliefs or
     opinions.)
  • Superstitious approach to God’s
     Word.
