An insightful friend of mine, Fr. Robert, said, “Being able to change is simply part of being a Christian!”
True, and too bad the vast majority of “Christians” don’t see it that way. They simply believe either what they are taught or what naturally fits their personal predisposition; no questions asked, no putting their beliefs on the shelf until scripture either proves or disproves their most closely held belief, no bowing prostrate before God and crying out, “LORD teach my mind and my heart what is True so that I may throw away these erroneous beliefs that contradict you.”
Why, in the name of Christ, do we not learn from Jesus’ summary rebuke of the Pharisees and say, “Teach me LORD. Send your Holy Spirit to teach me what I need to know, what I need to believe; empower me to revile even these subtle beliefs that contradict the Truth of You, the Truth of Your plan for me! I am your created human and you are my God. Teach me what You want me to believe.”
Why? Because we don’t want to.
We love the familiar and hate what is not. If Truth does not change your mind on a regular basis, God is not your God. Your god is the convenience of belief.
