Man's intolerance towards that which he does not understand breeds criticism, judgement and condemnation.
In the wagging of the tongue...when it comes to interpretation of scripture...that misunderstanding response causes people to wrongly understand the purpose and the role of the Church in the community of humanity.
I have found out that listening to understand brings much contentment when my misunderstood understanding is finally understood. In that moment of understanding I am set free from my misunderstood understanding prison to the freedom and pleasure that the joy of understanding brings.
Contentment is accepting that which I do not understand without getting angry or casting judgement and condemnation on the person whom I think is misunderstood in his understanding.
Don't despair, if we are in the shadow of misunderstanding that means that the light of understanding is shining somewhere. Eventually you will move out of the shadow of misunderstanding to the bask in the light of understanding.
