We Agnostics Page 51 from start of first paragraph: ‘This world of ours has made more material progress in the last century…’ until page 52 end of first paragraph ‘…which does not work for something new which does?’
Look up: millennium, fettered, superstition, biased, Wright Brothers, Professor Langley
In the realm of the material, men’s minds were fettered by superstition, tradition, and all sorts of fixed ideas.
1. What are you fettered by, is it superstition or is it fixed ideas?
Are not some of us just as biased and unreasonable about the realm of the spirit as were the ancients about the realm of the material?
2. Are you that way?
3. What have you tried once or twice and you are now prejudiced against?
4a. Who are you going to ask for help when your addiction is calling upon you?
4b. How do you handle that?
We asked ourselves this: Are not some of us just as biased and unreasonable about the realm of the spirit as were the ancients about the realm of the material?
5a. Are you biased and unreasonable about the realm of the spirit/religion as opposed to the modern scientific research and inventions?
5b. Where are you today?
After We Agnostics we will go to 12 x 12 for Step Two and Tradition Two.
6. Are you excited to learn about the traditions? Maybe you are biased and unreasonable about them? Where are you with that?
But in most fields our generation has witnessed complete liberation of our thinking.
7a. Have you in most fields witnessed a complete liberation of your thinking?
7b. Where is there bias and unreasonable prejudice in your step one fellowship?
7c. What about God? Have you witnessed a liberation of your thinking about God since you have been doing this Big Book study process and doing your daily Quiet Time?
7d. Where has your liberation been in other areas of your life e.g. have you witnessed a liberation in your thinking about someone in your neighborhood?
8. Are you willing to allow the Big Book process to help you discard old ideas for new and God’s will for you?
