Guess I learned to think for myself from all the reading I have done since learning how to. I learned to decide for myself what was right and wrong. Grew up going to church 3 times a week. When I was in 5th grade, we could memorize verses or chapters of the Bible. If we did so many, we got a Bible. In high school, the students led a devotional and said a prayer. People today do not read like I did, so they hae no idea what is true and what isn’t. They just take the word of some character on a power kick. Is that why there are dems? It seems they have no idea of how to decide the truth. They want to be spoon fed. Am I making any sense? It is 4 here.

You’re making plenty of sense.

“Faith cometh by hearing” so whatever you’re hearing the most you’ll trust the most.It’s why propaganda works.

It amazes me as well that people seem to be happy to be spoon fed rather than buy that field and get to digging.

It was when I started reading the Bible I started to question everything AND everyone.In particular the numbskull in the mirror!

‘Belonging’ seems to be a powerfull motivator amongst humans but it also shows our ‘un-wholeness’ for ourselves and all to see.No doubt satan plays this to great advantage over people.Killing,stealing and destroying that which someone else deemed precious enough to lay down His very life for!
