Analytic meditation, as defined:
Our minds are filled with confused thoughts and beliefs; often, even when we recognize logically that our beliefs are wrong, they are so embedded that they are virtually impossible to shed. By employing vigorous analytical methods and reasoning, we can deconstruct these beliefs, actively examining the concepts we cling to and questioning whether they really exist. With practice, logic becomes more sustainable, and understanding gains force, leading to wisdom.
Is there any equivalent of analytic meditation in any Christian tradition/denomination/sect, specifically in Protestant tradition? If yes, what are the supporting scriptures?
