Through ideation we experience naive understandings.
Things which seem true but don't stand the test of time.
This results in disillusionment, resentment, and cynicism.
People are not perfect.
We must understand that others are not perfect, they are only human, even if they are in positions of authority, even spiritual authority, over us.
Forgiveness helps the forgiver as well as the forgiven.
We are free from disillusionment, resentment, and cynicism.
"'be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.'" Matthew 10:16b (NRSV)
Know the world and be like God.
In the end there is only one teacher and that is God.
