Deciding What Is True
How much of what we believe about God is based on what we read in the Bible, and how much is based on our own personal experiences?
In other words, how much faith do we choose to place in things external and how much in things internal?
If the Bible tells us something that runs perpendicular to our own encounters with the Divine, how do we choose which path to follow? Do we trust the writings of those who have gone before, or do we trust the answers we receive when we ask for wisdom and insight?
How do we choose what to believe is true?
