Theological Illusions

"Context is Everything"

 

Bible students consider CONTEXT to be the most important aspect of good research. 

 

However, context has a dimension that most Christians overlook. Preconceived notions. 

 

As you watch this TED Talk, consider how we can look at something that we know for certain - yet we can be completely deceived by the surroundings, or context. 

 

Consider how theological illusions, or preconceived ideas that we all develop during our lifetimes, can keep us from seeing the truth. Or even

worse, unwilling to see. 

 

As you read the BVB's, ask yourself if the surroundings of your conventional bias are keeping you from seeing the truth.
