The standard interpretation of the bible isn't that much based on the book itself but its surrounding culture. It doesn't contain a "how to read" section (atleast not that explictly). The parent posts seem like you are trying to emphasise the text over the interpretation culture and here doing the reverse. I have trouble reconciling how both descriptions apply to a single stance on the issue or whether the issue is that your stance is inconsistent.

My point is to avoid stupid straw positions like attempting to take the parables literally.
