16. But the same feelings
without the use of critical thinking can and does lead people to horrible actions for themselves and others.
Don't you think people who abandon medicine for faith healing, or give all their money to a church charlatan or become a suicide bomber and not following trust and obedience.
Trust and obedience to me means you are allowing another (a person or God) to make your decision for you.
Or are you talking following some inner inspiration or divine revelation, which is an entirely different conversation.
