It can be difficult to swallow new ideas or new ways of doing things, however it’s only choking on ice-cream
The Christian Science Monitor Weekly’s editor poses an interesting opening paragraph in the August 13, 2012 edition, “Where does intelligence come from? Biologists look to organic structures. Psychologists study influences and experiences. Theologians look to the spiritual.”
Quite often, biologists, psychologist, and theologians are inclined to share views and learn from one another since most can admit intelligence needs cultivating. Not surprisingly, the new ideas or ways of doing things are hard to swallow. Even some theologians have a hard time swallowing what other theologians are sharing. They choke. But its like they are only choking on ice-cream. It melts and goes down okay. We can see infinite views.
We can take the time to swallow and digest new ideas before we wave them off.
