I have to wonder how many times we judge others by our own experiences.
I am speaking, of course, of the religious experience. If we have a religious experience (insert you own definition here) in one place, under one doctrine, or one person, or even with one bible, then is it possible that we then judge the experiences of others by our situation.
Examples – the KJVO myth. Some people who hold to this doctrine often times denies the salvation of another if they were saved under the reading of an NIV.
Or charismatics and pentecostals and others.
Just some passing thoughts here, but if we have a religious experience, why is it always assumed that it was the external factors which produced the results – bible, doctrine, ‘move’ – and not us?
The same thing with Atheists. Because they have never had one, of have had one and then justified it, then they assume that all others are equally wrong.
