    At one point in time it was considered OPEN mindedness to believe that Jesus was the son of God! The Sadducee's and Pharisee's were so closed minded that they never even noticed the old scripture coming to life before their very eyes.

    I voted no. My wife even calls me rigid. Actually, she called me something else but I would get banned for repeating it here.

    Not sure what you're referring to.....but I'm gonna say probably not very. More specifics would help.

    If open minded means I accept everyone no matter what they do, then NO.

    Yes, as long as you agree with me.:cool:
     
  13. Nope, not even a little.
    I believe there is right and wrong and the difference is most decidedly NOT a matter of perspective.
    I believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that it means what it says and is not open for debate.
    I believe that the authors of the constitution knew what they wanted to say, said it, and never intended to create a "living" document, but instead intended a solid rock for the foundation of our country. It doesn't "evolve" it gets amended by a prescribed process only.
    Nope, open minded is just a nice term for the hole in your head that your brain rolled out of.

    My wife say's I am set in my way's, I call it having been raised right and having morals. Opened minded means going against all that.

    I don't believe so. In the immortal words of Aron Tippin " if you don't stand for something then you'll fall for anything"

    By todays standards not one bit. I'm forced to tolerate a lot by my career choice. I just keep to myself.

  18. Everything depends on definitions. Usually when that question is asked whatever has been hiding in wait springs out.

    As to the pure question I would say it depends on the subject, and on a really bad day my attitude! LOL

    I'm probably not very open-minded, being as how I was reprogrammed during military training. At least thats what my wife claims!:fit::fit::fit::razz:

    I like to believe that I am. Being open-minded doesn't mean that you're gulible. It just means that you give equal consideration to thoughts and opinions. You still make your own choices, and have your own convictions.
