You have just proven that you do not go by the Word of God, but instead Scofield's opinion.
I presented the Scriptures that tell us how we get understanding of the Scriptures. It doesn't need anyone else's outline or "panoramic" opinion. One merely needs to seek understanding with prayer and comes from the Holy Spirit who indwells all believers aka Those who believe Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh, died for our sins, rose and is sitting at the right hand of the Father.
What you have done by agreeing with Scofield is made it a required concept instead of the truth of the Scriptures such as were quoted to you.
I suspect you can't answer otherwise, because you don't understand why it is overturning the Scriptures given.
When we study it is important to take into account the passage and context..and also other verses on the same topic....but that is simply part of Studying to show yourself approved.
What you are doing is saying Scofield alone had the answer on how to understand correctly...and guess what....there is no Scripture to support that. None.
Isaiah 28:9-10 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 10. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
It is fully about what the Scriptures have to say...not someone's ideas about what the Scriptures have to say. Especially when they do not line up with the Scriptures. And again, you avoided the questions and possible Scriptures that were asked of you concerning Scofield. We are called to prove all things, not pretend they don't exist because we have chosen to follow a man's teaching.
There is absolutely nothing that can be said in defense of anyone who accepted or promoted him as a pastor, or teacher or his writings, when one views the requirements of someone who is presented as leadership, IN THE Scriptures. Since we cannot be respectors of person's that means it does not matter who promoted him..it was in disobedience to the Scriptures.
Titus 1:6-9 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. 7. For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; 8. But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; 9. Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
1 Thessalonians 5:21-22 21. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22. Abstain from all appearance of evil.
1 Timothy 3:1-11 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. 2. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; 3. Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; 4. One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5. (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) 6. Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. 7. Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. .
3John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
