Assumptions.

Assumptions not only influence how we read things they also influence the conclusions we draw by making what we read agree with what we think or want it to mean. Is it possible that our presuppositions can lead us down a different path than the text we read was meant to take us?

For instance, practically everyone is told what “Christianity” is and what the “Bible” says and means before reading it carefully for themselves. The problem with that is; what you have heard may be from people who have interpreted the Bible in light of what they believe instead of letting the Bible formulated what they believe.

Interpreting the Bible in light of what we believe is one reason there are so many different doctrines and denominations in existence.
