Yes, that is definitely useful. For me, it’s very hard to get anything new from christianity, or to even look at it anymore because of all the damage it attempted to do to me. But, there is good in all religions. So I don’t want someone else to look at my opinions and issues and then say Christianity is bad. That’s not my intent ever. However, I try to explain myself with a bit of background so there is context for my beliefs.
And there is not better teacher than disagreement. It doesn’t take much thought to agree with something. But when you disagree, how much time to you spend thinking about it? It can be quite a lot. So we shouldn’t shy away from things we disagree with. Come to them with the right mindset and you can come out with the greatest awakening of your life!
