You’re Not Right All the Time and That’s OK

There has never been any person on this planet whose thoughts have all been true, except for John Piper, I mean, except for Jesus.

Some people honestly think all their beliefs are true and all their thoughts are 100% true, but these people are delusional.

To know that some of your views are wrong, and you might not even know which ones, may seem unnerving, it bothers many a person. “How can I know anything then?” is the typical overreaction.

Knowing that not everything you think or believe is true is humbling. It keeps you from bashing others into the ground. It keeps you out of the sphere of being like Job’s friends. Knowing you might be wrong keeps you from being a jerk.

We’re all fallible. There is a freedom in that, but mostly there should be humility.
