Opinions??

The natural heart has issues with believing some things. The natural heart will reject a belief that will condemn it.

The natural heart doesn’t want to believe that hell is real.

The natural heart seems to have its problems with living a holiness lifestyle also.

So we have a tendency to opine and move in response to emotions or feelings rather than fact.

You know, “Well I think Jesus would allow this” or I feel like Jesus would be OK with this”.

Opinions are important only if they agree with the facts.

That’s just my opinion.

In the Bonds of Calvary,

    Interesting thought Bro Bob. The previous comment quotes an unnames source stating that “Opinions are important only if they agree with the facts.” Will all respect to Paul, this quote is not historically supported by the facts. “Power” makes an opinion important, whether it is supported by facts or not. Consider the opinions of Stalin, Hitler, Mao, and a host of others, others who imposed their will and slaughtered millions based upon power, rather than fact. Granted, by using circular logic, it could be alleged that the “fact” was that the ruler had “power.” Again, with respect, my opinion is that the quote borders on deception. Finally, my opinion is based upon my understanding of the word “important”. Lucifer, et.al. has set forth many opinions that are endangering the entire world and all of mankind, are these important or not? I think yes, and we must treat them accordingly. This produces an interesting discussion among friends who had best know and teach truth. Thanki you. Blessings.
