I am making an interpretive stance. I say an 'interpretive stance' because I have been told, by many, that their interpretations, of the Bible, conclude with different outcomes. Yet, many agree with me, due to their interpretations.
I feel that intentions are more important than outcomes. Those that disagree with that statement, normally, disagree with one of two parts. The first part deals with basing my statements from what I 'feel.' The second part deals with the importance of intentions.
Feelings are, normally, an outcome of gathered information. As time travel, feelings are constructed without information. I think, and feel, that the connection between feelings and information should be promoted and not assumed that a connection does not exist. For example, their exists a connection between 1+1 and 2. If people always assumed that their is no connection between 1+1 and 2, its connection will eventually be unknown. The proof of this rests in the different beliefs. I feel that one should ask of the source of the information used to create the feelings. Instead, feelings are automatically assumed to be true or false.
There seems ridiculous, to me, to disagree with the statement, 'I feel that intentions are more important than outcomes.' I feel that disagreeing with the statement is ridiculous because God knows your intention no matter what outcome He allows. Your intentions are not greater than God's will. For example, it may be you intention to keep Bob 'out of harm's way,' so you took him to the park. At the park, he gets robbed and stabbed. God may have been teaching him something, it does not say that your intentions were bad.
Many, not all, disagreements can be traced back to someone's desire to always be right. I would be lying if I would not put myself in this human group. Unlearn.
