There is an irony of sorts with the quote below. Greg Boyd, who mentioned it on his Twitter account, is a pastor and scholar. He holds to Open Theism, a position, I do not. Boyd wrote a terrific book called The Myth of a Christian Nation. I recommend it highly.
Lesson: All of us must be careful to listen and learn from others, even when we are predisposed to write them off.
“You are truly open minded when, instead of looking for what’s wrong in your opponent’s position, you’re looking for what might be right.” (Greg Boyd)
Thanks for the reminder. I especially find this to be true when I converse with my grown sons. Perhaps they, too, find that they learn something from me (though that probably ceased once they hit their thirties 🙂
