Opinions! Opinions! Opinions!

"The truly wise man is he who believes the Bible against the opinion of any man." — R. A. Torrey.

Anyone can give his or her opinion on any matter, even the ones they have no clue on. Guess all you need to have an opinion on any subject? You are right. 

All you need is instinct and emotions. Period! You don't even need to have a clue on the subject matter. And, probably the worst of places where these thrive is in the third world.

It appears poverty has a way of doing us in. Or, maybe it is something else, but it is so pitiful. We are so gullible as a people. Yet all it takes to get the facts on any issue is right in our hands.

Just a few clicks on our smartphone and we can get the facts on about any issue we want. How simple is that? Yet lazy minds and hands will not yield. 

Insecure people who want to create a quick, cheap impression on Facebook jump on topics they have no clue about and try to stir up arguments. Yet when asked simple questions they cannot answer, nor admit ignorance.

Who has done us? Empty barrels, all about making noise. All about motion, but no movement. As it were accursed not to progress, in an environment where all that is required is made available.
Who will deliver us from this rut? O God save your people.

Remember, Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. You can rest your life on Him.

You are wiser than to just base your life on someone’s opinion. Your life is too precious to rest upon any “Tom, Dick and Harry’s” opinion. The questions always should include,

Is it a fact, or a truth?
If a fact, is it a useful fact, or a mere one?
If a useful fact, is it in line with truth?
If inline with truth, how do I run with it?
If not in line with truth, how do I take the truth to change the false, useful fact?

How difficult is this? The Father made us a LIVING Soul for a reason. When will we start living that reason?
