Learn to Think for Yourself

We can do this.  We can change our world.  As we stand our ground and get involved we can influence change.  This country (USA) has turned down a road of destruction, but we have an opportunity to bring it back into alignment with destiny.  We must seek truth and not swallow everything that is handed to us. Learning to think critically has been lost.  The news media, social media, acquaintances, or friends and family all regale us with their opinions.  How do we sort through all of the rhetoric?

Learning to think critically is a process of evaluating what we hear or read and finding the truth before we react and make a judgement.  When everyone is sharing their own truth it can be difficult to determine the real truth.  What is our standard and what do we measure truth against?

If we say Jesus, because he is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6) what about those who don’t believe in Jesus?  What is our moral standard?  Is there such a thing as right and wrong?

This is not a political post or a religious post, although we will talk about both.

I want to encourage you to think about some of these things.  Next week I will attempt to answer some of my own questions.
