A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices. (William James, 19th-20th century psychologist)

One of the dangers in talking with, reading after, or watching the news from people you mostly agree with is that you may not be challenged to think “outside the box.” Contrary opinions force us to reflect a little more on the concerns we’re facing. We grow by comparing ideas and reasoning through the arguments. Set prejudices aside and research the issues to think clearly.

Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking. (Colossians 2:8)

Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. (Philippians 4:8)
