There are different ways of keeping you from finding out the truth. One method that has been used is the banning of books. Another method that has been used to keep people from the truth is discouraging them from studying. These methods don’t work that well. Many people immediately see the motivation behind the book-banning and the words against studying. But there is a different method, a more insidious method of keeping people from the truth.
By calling your theological opponents “blind” you will successfully keep your flock from the truth. It will not even occur to them that there is another way of looking at things. Your followers will already “know” why others don’t agree with you.
If your teachers are telling you that those who don’t see the Bible as they do are “spiritually blinded”, then you are probably being kept from the truth.
Watch out! And don’t say that you weren’t warned.
