Well Sean, how to answer you…keep in mind that I MIGHT be the most simple minded in comparison with most on this forum.
Useful methods to reveal my blind spots is first recognize my tendency/desire/temptation for THE BIBLE TO AGREE WITH ME and what I want it to say. Then put that away.
Start again. Put myself in the position of prayer and submission to the Lord and for me to agree with what the bible really does say. Look at other perspectives without fear and without knee jerk responses to defend MY cause.
Listen to those who are teachers and love the Lord Jesus and look closely to what the bible is actually saying. Giving much thought and asking for the Lord’s enlightenment to my understanding. How we build matters, and how we guard our hearts is hugely important.
