Rules - Conclusion

If one skims through the rules without comprehending them, or like Naaman hears the instruction but is insulted at their apparent simplicity [1], the results of exegesis will look like the free-for-all allegory of others that we all reject.

It should not be expected that using the 'Syrian waters' of free-for-all allegory should produce a result any different than before.
The rules must be used rigorously to discern the truth of scripture.
  1. 2Ki 5:11 But Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the LORD his God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper.
