Biblical Perspicuity and Linguistic Under-Determination

This is a good article about why the Bible is hard to interpret. I have my own opinion as to why God made the Bible difficult. I believe that studying the Bible is part of the reward. The same thought processes that are useful for making sense of the Bible are useful for making sense of the world. It is part of how Jesus brings the abundant life. Besides that God knows that no matter how clear things are written we will misinterpret them if we want to. Our Canadian constitution is barely a generation old and our Supreme Court has felt free to interpret in counter to what it actually says.
