To what should the Bible be applied?

The Bible should be applied to whatever it applies itself.

This may or may not mean our personal lives or something in them at any given time. Not everything in the Bible is about us or the Church. Some things are about things larger than us—like nations—and some not dealing directly with people at all—like nature.

If we limit our interpretation and application of the Bible to only our personal lives, this leaves room for ideologies like the militant exclusion of church from state to take hold.
