It would make every man's ruler right in his own eyes. There would be confusion, commentaries written on whose inch to use, and no such thing as an "inerrant" inch, since who could say what the standard was?

But when it comes to his work, we usually agree on how long a 2-foot measurement should be. And if there's any question whether he's measured only 1-1/2 feet we have an easy way to check: get a ruler.
I have found that most problems stem from the fact that some don't know how to read a ruler or don't use one often enough to read it that well.

For example my Dad was a carpenter. I grew up with a ruler in my hand (the old wooden fold-out 6' ruler). Of course I could open and close it with out breaking it (a thing most people can't do) I know what the metal slide is for. I can read it down to the 1/16" of course. I even know what the markings are for in relation to laying off a house wall.

Now for my son (when he was very small) I bought him a 16' "tape measure." It had all of the 1/16" and 1/8" and 1/4" and ect. printed right on the tape rather than the hash marks. He used it for a year or so and then said he wanted a real tape measure not a "baby" tape measure. So we bought him one.

The problem I see in so called Bible Interpretation... is that many people are still using "baby tape measures." Oh they can go to some verse (that someone else told them about) and try to explain their point of view.

It is like studying the pre-adamite world with someone starting out by saying: "That's crazy - I never heard of that!"

Thats right - they never heard of that - and that is the problem! They only have a baby tape measure.

And because of all the "baby tape measure" users of the Christian world you get all these strange interpretations!

Yes my Dad was a carpenter.

My elder brother was also a carpenter before he went into the ministry!

And I have a great uncle way back whose whole family was in the ship building business. But they did not stay in it for long - things sort of dried up for them.

And I have a great uncle way back that was in the demolition business. Unfortunately the last building he demolished he was killed.

But I still do a little carpentry work myself - just for the fun of it. I do however have ONE worker still who is now on assignment building me a new house - but it is not located in South Carolina - so I may be moving.

The fault in Bible complications is not with God or the Bible, but with men who refuse to believe what God says and think we have to interpret what He says in order to get the meaning. Dake Bible -Mark 11:17 note
