Heart Gathers Iniquity on AutoPilot!


The Bible talks about how the heart 'gathers iniquity to itself'. 

 I found a parallel with the heart gathering iniquity to itself on autopilot and cognitive bias. This is where we automatically filter out information that challenges our presuppositions. I explore finding cognitive bias in ourselves and how we can have fruitful conversations with people that may have cognitive bias.
