The more one knows God through Scripture, the better he or she can discern how Scripture applies to modern belief and practice. In other words, God’s characteristics are the principles that must be applied to rightly inform modern belief and practice. This paper seeks to define a basic hermeneutic of application. Ever wonder who to vote for, if stem-cell research is morally acceptable, if you should baptize your newborns, or why the doctrine of the Trinity can be so well defined even though he Bible does not use the word “Trinity”? This paper explains different viewpoints concerning how God’s word applies to life here and now. In it, Andrew observes Jesus’s hermeneutic of application so that we might better understand how Scripture actually applies today.
