Our Opinions

In a sense, we live in a controversial world. Some agree with this, some don’t. Some like this, some don’t. While we have our different opinions about different situations there are some that, albeit controversial, need to be addressed head-on. These situations do not favor our opinions. They’re either right or wrong. We can have an opinion about something that we don’t have enough information about, but once that info is obtained our opinions should no longer be an option. However, there are some that no matter how much information they receive, they still want to hold to their opinions. These people are programmed to believe a certain way be it right or wrong. Some really believe their opinion to be truth, while others could care less; they still want to hold to their opinions. What they don’t realize is one’s opinion could be right or wrong, so when truth is revealed our opinions should go out the door. Some people want to hold to their beloved opinions so much that if one were to disagree with them, then that disagreement becomes subject to insults, ridicule, and character assassinations. Their thought processes cease and they refuse to analyze the situation any further. One who seeks the truth will investigate any subject to find out if they are right or wrong. Pride is no object and that is the the problem with the opinion-huggers. They have been programmed to believe a certain way for so long their pride gets in the way. It’s like they know all they need to know and don’t need to know any more and if you don’t agree with them, well, something is wrong with you. One must always analyze every situation to find what truth lies beneath, not form an opinion and leave it at that without corresponding scrutiny.

Have a good day and I’ll see you on the rebound.


Author: V. E. Brown

I was born in Roanoke, VA on October 16, 1968. A few years later, my family settled in the Washington, DC area where I grew up. I graduated from Friendly Senior High School in 1986. I attended North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC as a geography major. Looking for a change of environment, I made Durham my permanent home in 1988. In October of 1986, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and began attending Mt Zion Christian Church. In 2003, I met a lovely young lady from Liberia named Autherine and we were married a year later. I believe in the deity of Jesus Christ and the inerrancy of God's Holy Word, the Bible. I follow a Christian/conservative worldview. I enjoy reading, writing, movies, badminton, football (Dolphins, baby!!!), bowling, board, video, and computer games, and traveling.
