Bible Interpretation and Little Bo Peep

One of the most dangerous things that Christian teachers can do is to force symbolic meanings onto biblical passages. Forcing allegorical meanings onto texts that are not supposed to be allegory is simply taking license to make the text say whatever the interpreter wants.

John MacArthur illustrates this idea with a few laughs by offering an exegesis of Little Bo Peep.
