OK, color me heretical here. I think that is too restrictive a hermeneutic. I agree that scripture doesn't make authoritative statements about science. But, I believe God can personalize a passage of scripture for an individual, and possibly even a group—as long as it is in doctrinal agreement with the remainder of scripture. Maybe it's my Wesleyan/Charismatic background speaking here versus the Reformed, more cerebral background of the authors, but the Holy Spirit has used passages of scripture in my life to convict and direct me in ways that definitely go beyond what was intended by the OT author. Way beyond!
