Open or Closed Minded?

Are you open minded? Most people want to say that they are open minded. Can you imagine someone saying, “I’m closed-minded.” Most people won’t say that. They might say, “I’m not going to change.” A lot of times that means the same thing. What does it mean to be open minded? Open-mindedness is a willingness to believe. It isn’t just listening or giving a hearing. There are those who will listen to what God said, but they have already made up their mind. That is closed mindedness. I do find that most people are closed-minded, and that fits also what I see in the Bible. Broad is the road that leads to destruction, Jesus said (Matthew 7:13-14). Broad is the road and full of closed-minded people. They suppress the truth (Romans 1:18). Hopefully reader, you’re not closed-minded, especially when it comes to what God is telling you. If you will not listen to change, you are closed-minded, in essence ignoring God. God has been good to you and you are not being good to Him. Some will say that they don’t believe in God. I’d like to give them some proof—but no. They can’t even tolerate a short presentation. I’m still waiting for someone to give me something persuasive that shows everything got here by accident. People should be able to do that, but they won’t, well, because they can’t. Accident is not a viable explanation. It’s just being closed-minded.
