If you’ve ever sought higher education, there can be requirements for critical thinking. Being a woman of logic, I understand this concept. Being a woman of faith however challenges me to understand I can’t critically think my way into heaven. My intellectual prowess isn’t always helpful for walking in my faith. Truth be told, I find it a great hindrance.
I can pretty much bend my thinking to anything I want it to be as long as I avoid truth. Once truth comes into the picture I have to relieve myself of idols and distractions.
It’s easy to understand why history is replete with stories of the peoples who served idols. They were semi-critical in thinking. They understood logic to mean they should serve a god who could be seen and touched. What easier way to come to grips with this dilemma than to create one?
