Confirmation Bias

Karen Siggins speaks about our tendency towards Confirmation Bias to prove a point. A continuation in our series on the church in Ephesus. Karen is the Interim Director of Ministries at the Baptist Ministry Centre. We all have a tendency to over-read or under-read a situation when we try to prove a point. This is called Confirmation Bias. Karen unpacks this in the context of us making choices about the path we follow and the judgements we make in life. Key points; - The wrong pathway is a dangerous place. Anyone can make a wrong choice. - God and the devil are not virtual equals wrestling over humanity. - The devil does not represent a threat to God’s purposes. - The fear, the devil can ‘make us’ do stuff, is NOT biblical. You and I have been lured by the power of evil, which clearly exists. - When God gets angry its because of His love. - God is NOT angry with you. He is angry with evil. - For we are God’s masterpiece. Ephesians 2:10 - The Holy Spirit empowers in us the gift of Grace. - We should be like Jesus and lean in with Grace. Questions to ponder; - What pathway are you on? - Where might God be leading you to join him in deploying Grace - internally and externally? New? Have questions?
