Do not treat prophecies with contempt 21 but test them all; hold on to what is good, 22 reject every kind of evil. 1 THESSALONIANS 5If you consider the word "prophecy" in a more scientific way you might see that its closest to the word "hyposthesis" since it deals with predictions of the future.
The reason I make this comparison is because there is a 'testing' to be done with each.
Then a very "Bruce Lee" type of suggestion is made. "hold on to what is good, 22 reject every kind of evil." or in Bruce's words "Keep what workds and discard the rest".
If you don't like my reinterpretation then fuck off. I will make sense of the bronze age of understanding (the bible writer's perception) with actual knowledge of today.
