Denying Facts

Maybe if the church had spent more time approving science over the years, we wouldn’t have created this conundrum where Christians are welcome to believe whatever they want regardless of statistics, facts, research, etc.

I grow frustrated that conspiracy has taken over so many minds so deeply that we can no longer have a simple conversation. Debate has become nothing more than, “Well, I don’t like that fact or narrative so it’s wrong and someone else agrees with me regardless of your facts so I’m right.”

If an actual true fact does not fit your worldview, it is your worldview that must be tested, not the opposite. You don’t even need to give up your worldview—you just need to readjust it and tweak it to make space. It takes courage sometimes to do so, but if we want to love God with our minds, we must offer them over to him first.
