aurora_nebulosa: Christians with Synesthesia

How are Christians to understand their synesthesia in the context of their Christianity? Is there any biblical example of people (not necessarily with synesthesia) but with other unusual perceptions (un-related to spiritual ones? If so, were these approved of, disapproved of, or reacted to indifferently either th bye writer of a given book or by the "characters" within it? Should Christians understand their perceptual situation as a "disability" or as a "blessing"?

I'm not sure Christians necessarily feel any different about their syn than anyone else. I enjoy my syn and would definitely lean toward calling it a blessing rather than a disability. But the term disability in itself is questionable, hence the sometimes debate of calling it "differently abled". A different experience in itself can be a contribution to the world.

Mentioned in the Bible or not..God created us all for our special purposes and our individual paths.

Good point there about us all having a purpose, whatever our abilities or disabilities (or simply, differences).
