Disagreements and controversies

I just had to share this from Greg West.

Disagreement is refreshing when two men lovingly desire to compare their views to find out truth. Controversy is wretched when it is only an attempt to prove another wrong. Religious controversy does only harm. It destroys humble inquiry after truth, and throws all the energies into an attempt to prove ourselves right – a spirit in which no man gets at truth.

– Frederick W. Robertson

Today may be the end of the world (wait for it, there’s still time…) but hopefully insights like this can help us avoid the end of either healthy relationships or an honest search for the truth.
