Mike and John talk about thoughts and questions from Sunday’s message on Hebrews 5:11-6:20.
– In meditating on scripture, how does one avoid confirmation bias, even in your own mind? If you are rooted in a particular belief system outside of the Bible (ie political beliefs) how do you avoid interpreting the scripture through that lens? And please don’t say “because Holy Spirit” like it’s just magic. I’d like to know practical application. Obviously people have to have an open heart and willingness to grow and learn and even be wrong, but what practical way can someone facilitate such growth?
– For instance, when you talk about how we need to love other people, how many people subconsciously interpret that as “other Americans”? Or more drastically, “other white people” (although I don’t think that is the mindset of anyone at Westway, just an example).
– Maybe this is an unfair question as I have to acknowledge, in asking, I’m part of the problem. I’m not asking as someone who feels the issue applies to me personally, but as someone who is bothered by the way I see other Christians behave.
