Allegory Avoids The Literal Meaning Of Scripture

Resorting to allegory to interpret the bible is a way of avoiding its literal meaning. [paraphrased] Robert Bradshaw

Is there any scripture offered to support this? No. What does the Bible say?

But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.

Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. Galatians 4:23-24

Here the bible tells us that certain historical events are to be understood as allegories. But there is no attempt to deny the reality of the original events. Secondly one does not 'resort' to allegory. God reveals the allegory to the reader who seeks after Him, as He sees fit.
