The Christian Bible is the basis for over 25,000 organized interpretations all made in the name of Christianity.  None are more wrong than another nor more right than another.  

I believe Bible passages are interpreted in four major categories:

Physical: Literal into action

Mental: Literal into thought

Spiritual: Literal into metaphysical (example parable)

Ethereal: Personal relationship

I have been  taught and studied  in religion, and religions all four interpretations beginning as a youngster in Sunday school, continuing through confirmation, church, college, books, and classes.  Each was correct at the time.  As life changes so does what is seen.

1 Corinthians 13:11
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.


Passages of the Christian Bible are presented here using the four modes of interpretation, Physical, Mental, Spiritual and Ethereal.  Care is taken not to mix the interpretation categories within the passage.  Mixing interpretive categories when referring to God’s message only confuses the reader and does not allow for understanding.

“I can only understand based on my own perception.  My perception is based upon my belief.  Even though I have knowledge I only accept that which I perceive. Therefore, what I see (perception) is the key to who I am.  Changing the way I “see”, changes who I am.”                                                                 Ronald O. Masters II


One of Life’s Bonuses

One of my life’s bonuses is the Big Sky Retreat, in Big Sky Montana.  It is a spirit filled retreat without a religion base.  All faiths are welcome. “At the Retreat you spend almost a week, over the labor Day weekend, with globally respected teachers, in the wonderful environment of incomparable personal renewal and spiritual growth.  You will be thrilled by the music and get caught up in the humor that lightens every day of this remarkable event.  It is truly a profound experience.”  

This was paraphrased from the Big Sky Retreat brochure because I could not have expressed it better.  Visit the web-site at
