Why Christianity can't afford to be aggressive…

To hold to one assumption, to exclude any and all contradictory data, that isn’t science, that’s politics. — Larry Fleinhart, Numbers TV Show

To be willing to listen to contradictory information only enhances the belief you may already hold to. To not listen to what others have to say who might not disagree with you, is a sort of fear wherein we think we might hear something that will pull the rug out from underneath our feet. But, sometimes the rug needs to be pulled out from underneath us to show us what we are really standing on…

This is why it is important to never stop asking questions and sustaining curiosity. Curiosity leads us all to possibility. Fears keep us from them.
