I agree that any departure from the plain meaning of Scripture is heresy. But I do not believe that each person has an equal authority to interpret Scripture, and if I did believe such a thing, I couldn't justify disfellowshipping anybody.

I'd bet good money that the disfellowshipped churches claimed very sincerely that their Scriptural interpretations were the fruit of the insight vouchsafed to them by the Holy Spirit. 'Cause people rarely or never say, "Now, this isn't the Holy Spirit, it's just me."

Who interprets Scripture for you, Mrs. Don-o?
