There's only one valid biblical interpretation upon reading the *words* of the biblical scriptures.

That's biblically valid, that's according to biblical words of book chapter and verse.

Any questions, please leave a comment. That includes the critics as well.

What is the only biblically valid interpretation?

The only one where you're not found in a lie of the Bible. If you're in a lie, you're not correct, you're not in truth. If I have an invalid password, it's an incorrect password. To say my password is billy bob when it's really swordfish is not true.

Proverbs 30
"5 Every word of God is purified;[t]
he is like[u] a shield for those who take refuge in him.[v]
6 Do not add to his words,
lest he reprove you, and prove you to be a liar.[w]"

You add to the words by your own interpretation, it's invalid. The interpretation that you have can go no further than His words . 

Out of the mouth of two or three witnesses, we have another in Deuteronomy 4:2

"Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the Lord your God that I give you."

Any time you have thoughts of reason, logic, common sense, any personal interpretation, throw it out.

This was heavily demonstrated by the biblical contradictions debates. People think they understand one thing and find something that doesn't seem to be logical, their minds fill in the blanks and assume things into the context.

You may do that with secular books. Our minds are configured to plug in missing information. The bible is of a different read.

It's really that secular empirical approach that non believers in the bible take. I can show more scripture in regards to this but it more so applies to believers.

I'm trying to be objective in this topic. When anybody comes to read this book, don't calculate, don't add so that you get a trinity. Don't add or assume what makes sense . Don't apply your own definition of words. The context is in place for all of that.
