Biblical Interpretation

There are many techniques that can be used to open/reveal a text in pursuit of interpretation. The meanings of words are not fixed but can vary depending on their relationship to time, place, author, paragraph, sentence, word, and intentional mis-spelling. Micro/Macro context can also vary in their immediate context.
So, what if interpretation used the wisper of spirit as context?
If this technique could work, what are the implications. What is the future of Church authority and its strangle hold on biblical meaning? What is the future of biblical text?
"How should we then live?"

and on the same vane:
Is it possible to be biblically "Literal"?
Coming from the evangelical crowd, this is a proud badge to wear.

Is the church there to teach you and the Holy Spirit? Is the church there to teach you how to interpret the Holy Spirit's interpretation of the Bible? As the church exists today, nothing is taught that encourages one to listen to the Holy Spirit unless it is sanctioned by "The Organization" or "The Business". So why do you think the church operates this way? It almost appears they (the church) want to control how the Holy Spirit guides each person. If this is the case, the church is evil.

Without the Holy Spirit, many things won't be understood in church. If you get info from the church, The Holy Spirit is the translator of what it means, and whether it is sound or not.
