Southern Baptists don’t teach that...they teach that the Holy Spirit imparts to the believer what they need to understand from their readings of the scripture...that scripture isn’t understood from “private interpretation”; that is to say, not from the natural man, but rather by the light of the Holy Ghost that resides in each believer.

All believers are at different levels in their relationship with God. The Holy Spirit understands this and reveals the deep things of God to each child as needed.

Thank you for this explanation.

In my experience, every Scriptural interpretation, no matter how contradictory to competing interpretations, is proffered with the explanation that it is was arrived at by the light of the Holy Ghost that resides in each believer.
