I was taken by surprise a couple weeks ago when conversing with a new friend of mine in just how compartmentalized we have become, and that there's no singular thing that guides our lives or thinking. Or to put it another way, there is no thread that binds our thinking, towards the realities of life. The conversation was, why people have predigests and dislikes toward others as in the Ferguson, Mo., incident. My friend mentioned the need of better education, self esteem classes, even passing different laws would help. He said this was part of a recent conversation before a church meeting he attended. I mentioned God's working in the heart of each of us is where this must start, because we all have likes and dislikes of people, but we must allow God to deal with our own predigests before we can heal the predigests people have again us. He looked a bit confused over the issue and said that he wasn't sure how to help resolve this but maybe working out issues that liberals and conservatives have. He had no clue what I was trying to get across. I was talking apples and he was thinking oranges.
