An anthropocentric observation only allows the Bible to be anthropology rather than theology, but theology is its purpose. What this means is that the scholar who holds to naturalistic assumptions is often prevented from seeing the Bible as it was intended. He can only superimpose his analysis, gained not from the text, but from his own worldview, upon the text. In other words, he is hindered from understanding the object of his study, and often must transform it into a foreign object with a completely different purpose—one more befitting and complementary to his worldview. Hence, it is the naturalist, not the supernaturalist, who is bound, hand and foot, from understanding his supposed area of expertise. As such, he is merely an apologist for his own worldview, not a master of the subject to which he has supposedly devoted himself.
