NO BRAINS ALLOWED ONLY STRINGS
Critical thinking is the ability to think clearly and rationally about what to do or what to believe. It includes the ability to engage in reflective and independent thinking. Someone with critical thinking skills is able to do the following : ... reflect on the justification of one's own beliefs and values. But when it comes to church the God given mind is shutoff at the chapel doors and replaced with strings that are distributed like tithing envelopes only subliminal.
Critical thinking becomes an abomination to the church. Abomination is used in the Bible to describe things that are offensive or opposing to the things of God. But isn't being taught without a rebuttal to what is being said an abomination. Let's call it the puppet ministry that is in the hands of dedicated puppeteers, that pulls scriptures and strings to make you laugh, cry, and embrace the Biblical messages.
Let's dispel a myth right at the start: Critical thinking doesn't involve being argumentative, disrespectful of leadership, or actually being critical. It is members who aren't simply being critical, but who are evaluating what's going on and offering new ideas and theories to Biblical issues and events?
The objective is to do an analysis and an evaluation of any sermon in order to form a judgment.
