    Hmm. I looked up John 9:41, and I’m not sure I agree with the above interpretation/paraphrase.

    I’m an “unsurety junkie” sometimes, so I found myself a bit excited by your reference there, but looking it up (, the verse says more that blindness brings innocence, and sight brings guilt — i.e. we’re accountable for what we see and know.

    Perhaps you were reading more into my interpretation than I put there. I believe that Jesus is saying that if we admit our faults and weaknesses, then we are ready to repent and so we see ourselves clearly. The Pharisees speaking to Jesus were only looking for blame outside of themselves, not within themselves, and so they were blind.
