What is it:
With my channel becoming more structured, I have started a new series called learning from the Bible. In this series, we would be approaching the Biblical stories in a positive lens, looking at what is valuable and what is helpful from these texts.
A Positive Lens:
What does a positive lens mean?
The use of “positive” is very similar to the usage of “positive” by anthropologist Feuerbach in his critique of Christianity The Essence of Christianity. I want to use “positive” as I want to make it clear that this is not made only for Christians, this series is made for everyone: agnostics, atheists, Buddhists, Christians you name it!
Why a “Positive” Lens?
I fundamentally decided to use a “positive lens” to counter a lot of the actions of the New Atheists. A lot of people like Hermat Mehta and others like to pick on the Bible and try to find “Everything Wrong” with it.
This is a dangerous way to read a book. If you are reading something with the sole intent of finding flaws, this would easily change what you get out of it and make your reading of events very biased.
Instead, I want to take these texts for what they are and approach them with the least bias as possible to provide you with a thought-provoking approach to these important texts as I think that there are a lot of things that we can learn from them.
