It seems to me that if your going to affirm what the Bible says, you should affirm what the Bible says. Let scripture interpret scripture and instead of trying to change the Bible to support your views, change your views to what the Bible supports. But that might just be my high view of scripture talking.
“To hear what the Bible says, set it carefully on your desk and listen quietly. After a long enough silence has passed it may hit you that it does not talk; you have to read and interpret it.”—John D. Caputo, What Would Jesus Deconstruct?: The Good News of Postmodernism for the Church, 94
