I find it amusing (because I’m an evil Calvinist of course) that Calvinists are the “only” ones who think they are right and everyone else is wrong. This of course is a lie – everyone thinks they are right and unless you agree with them you are wrong. This is just the way humanity is.
If you did not think you were right, then wouldn’t you look for the truth? I think typically you would or you would make up your own truth. The idea that YOU do not think YOU are right is a lie. YOU do think YOU are right and everyone else is wrong.
Do you get points for questioning things? I read a scholar who said God did not love everyone. I talked to people, read my Bible, prayed about it, and determined based upon scripture that God does love everyone. I read about grace and how we are saved by grace alone. I seek answers. I read about making disciples. I seek answers. I read about sola scriptura. I seek answers. I read books about converting to Catholicism. I read books by atheists. I read books by Mormons. I read books by Church of Christ. I seek answers.
If someone is seeking answers then they probably think they are right but are open to finding the truth. Of course who cares if I want to find the truth? I am right. You are wrong so the truth has no validity here. By merely telling you that you think you are right and you think I am wrong – I am stating that I am right and you are wrong. The irony is not lost.
If someone is not seeking answers then they probably think they are right but are not open to finding the truth.
So if they are Greek or Jew, slave or free, man or woman, seeking truth or not seeking truth, they probably think they are right.
Are you open to finding the truth? What are you seeking?
