Audio Broadcast Description:
In this broadcast, Pastor Alfred talks about people not learning because when they listen to someone teach, they believe they know the subject matter already.
So they listen for what they already know and translate everything that is said into what they already know and they end up only remembering what they already know.
They don’t know that the purpose of listening when somebody is speaking or teaching is to learn something new.
They only listen for what they already know in what is said.
Their pride in proving to themselves that they already know what that person is going to say because they are already familiar with the subject matter makes them miss the new thing that is said.
They don’t know that the point of listening to someone speak on the subject matter they’re ready familiar with is to learn something new to add to what they already know on the subject matter they are familiar with.
So they never learn anything new inspite of how much new information they are exposed to.
They don’t grow.
