Thinking from ideology rather than from understanding

When we think of people who think from ideology rather than from understanding we tend to think of people in a political/social context but never in a theological context.

Pretty much all major institutions of higher learning in the western world have been infiltrated, subverted and downgraded by Marxism for many decades now. Even if it's low level cultural Marxism at this point it is still that Devil ideology permeating entire institutions. Some individuals can see it, feel it, and know that that way lies death; and thus they don't go that way. The less developed among us naively saunter into the Devil's den and swallow everything whole not having a clue what they are being fed. Then they walk out almost zombie-like in their inability to get real understanding of themselves and the world around them, not to mention getting understanding of the spiritual battlefield.

When you think from ideology rather than from understanding then facts, reality, truth itself have no effect on what you think or believe if those things contradict your ideology. If you have adopted a position, for instance, that the Christian faith is absolutely objective (i.e. not subjective in any way), that it doesn't effect individuals but only a collective, and that it involves doing nothing, only recognizing what has been done for you, and you hold to these ideas against any experience or teaching or insight disabusing you to the contrary then you are thinking from ideology rather than from understanding.

Consider this a note for whomever the shoe fits, but also more directly to the faculty of Westminster Seminary California and any they have influenced over recent years.
