I don't think that directive is limited to Religion. Look at politics. Look at Football. Seattle fans will never forget thejr first Superbowl loss to the Pittsburg Steelers, because of a play that every Seahawks fan says was a bad call by a referee and every Steeler fans see as excellent defense. They all see the same video. They all see the same evidence and come to completely opposite conclusions.
Same thing with OJ Simpson.
The majority of White people thought the verdict was racially motivated.
The majority of Black people believed justice had been served.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O._J._Simpson_murder_case#Reaction_to_the_verdict
Why is that?
They all saw the same evidence and drew completely opposite conclusions.
From the Wikipedia Article:
After the verdict in favor of Simpson, most black people surveyed said they believed justice had been served, with most claiming that Simpson had been framed and some even suggesting that Mark Fuhrman was the actual killer. Most whites (75%) disagreed with the verdict and believed that it was racially motivated. Discussion of the racial elements of the case continued long after the trial's end. An NBC poll taken in 2004 reported that, although 77% of 1,186 people sampled thought Simpson was guilty, only 27% of black people in the sample believed so, compared to 87% of whites. In 2016, FiveThirtyEight reported that most black people now think Simpson committed the murders. According to a 2016 poll, 83% of white Americans and 57% of black Americans believe that Simpson committed the murders.
Shapiro admitted the defense played the "race card," "from the bottom of the deck".
So we're all biased, to one degree or another.
But at what point does a blind spot become 'delusion'?
