The Superiority Of God's Truth Over Man's Opinions

The above titled Montana Street bulletin article was written by Brother Charles Pogue in June, 1996. The article‘s content is much needed in the church today, because it stresses our need to critically “think” about God’s truth rather than merely offer our “opinion” in spiritual matters (cf. Matthew 22:23-33; Mark 12:18-27 ASV).

In his autobiography, The Education of a Wandering Man, well-known western novelist, Louis L’Amour, wrote:

We do not at present educate people to think, but rather, to have opinions, and that is something altogether different.

It certainly is! All that is necessary to have an opinion, is an internal belief with little or inadequate reason for holding it. Or, it could be the case that one is not only taught to have opinion, but even told what opinion he is to hold. That is very common today as well. One thing is certain, holding an opinion is easy and does not demand the presence of a body of overwhelming evidence, and it disregards, even rejects, absolute truth.
