Many today are of the opinion that we have great difficulty understanding the Scriptures because we think with a western mindset and the mindset of the Scriptures is a Hebrew mindset.
I am convinced that it is much more important to consider that we are so indoctrinated by a 'fallen' mindset that we cannot by our own wisdom ever understand the things of God. Whether our mindset is eastern or western, it is fallen and we need to have our minds renewed.
The thoughts of God are so far above our thoughts that the wisdom of man can never reach there, but God has made a way for us to know His mind and purposes.
".....do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." nkjv 12:2.
