Somehow, our western culture has become completely enamored with “experts”.  Have a medical situation? Consult a doctor. Have a financial question? Consult an investment professional. Have a theological question? Consult a pastor.

In the midst of this progression over the last couple of centuries, we have gotten to the point where we seldom even give ourselves the opportunity to think things through for ourselves. We doubt our own ability to learn or find answers for ourselves.
