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.

Heart Gathers Iniquity and Cognitive Bias

Heart gathers iniquity on autopilot Ps 41:6 ;
Cessationists and atheists ignore what Pentecostals don't;
Demonizing people we disagree with;
Consequences of demonizing the enemy;
I used to be a New Ager so I understand their perspective;
People we disagree with believe they have valid points;
Winning an argument versus the 'bigger picture';
Seek first to understand and then to be understood;
Ascribing noble intent;
Consider the impact of what you may say;
Be open to new and challenging ideas;
Find common ground and work from there;
