Respect for the right of another to be wrong does not mean that the wrong is right.

Calm and civil debate is almost non-existent in today’s confused society. Allowing someone to voice a contrary opinion is simple courtesy and shows a willingness to learn. However, a willingness to hear an idea for discussion doesn’t mean you acknowledge that it is right. The purpose of discussion is to learn before making judgments.

So where does this leave the philosophers, the scholars, and the world’s brilliant debaters? God has made the wisdom of this world look foolish. (1 Corinthians 1:20)
