Your Opinion Does Not Matter – Neither Does Mine

Opinions do not matter, facts do.  Truth is not relative unless your definition of truth is that of Lenin and Stalin which is, “Truth is that which moves our agenda forward.”
We should not fight for opinion, but rather for truth.
As apprentices of Christ we are not, or should not be interested neither in our or anyone else’s opinion.  We should work hard at determining what is God’s truth.  This is not a politically correct position.  Our culture demands tolerance, coexistence of world views that are completely at odds.  That demand is irrational and destructive.  That demand denies that there is truth.

This is critically important when it comes to the pursuit of God.  By His grace – and Peter says by His divine power (2 Peter 1:3 – 4) – He has left us with His Word.  It matters what the Bible says, not what we want it to say or wish it did.  There is ample, sufficient data the text for us to find the truth and the promise of the Holy Spirit’s guidance (John 16:13).  We court significant in many cases fatal error when we try to speak where the Lord has not; when we try to close what we perceive as holes in what the Lord has revealed to us.  It is the best – no the only course to stay as close to what the Word says for when we do not, we tend to develop constructs that elevate man and not God.
