Kierkegaard on Understanding the Bible

Vanhoozer quotes Kierkegaard as saying “We pretend to be unable to understand [the Bible] because we know very well that the minute we understand we are obliged to act accordingly." Wow. How true is that and especially so of certain doctrines and Biblical teachings we don't like.
