Christadelphians accept the Scriptures as God's written word, but believe that they need to be read correctly, interpreting their message according to their original contexts. Views about exactly what constitutes correct interpretation vary, of course; sometimes it is possible to identify general approaches to interpreting the Bible associated with different beliefs about Origins.
