Ideas [can] stand on their own. (Dietrich Bonhoeffer, 20th century pastor and martyr)

Great minds discuss ideas. But to support our personal opinions, we often look for analogies or axioms that will win the argument of ideas. As Bonhoeffer suggests, however, ideas that reflect truth do not need to be propped up. We must search diligently for what is really true. Abe Tannenbaum argues that we “can afford to wait for the right ideas.”

Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge. (1 Timothy 6:20)
