“A wise man will hear and increase in learning, and a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel” (Pr 1:5)
Never, ever stop learning. Surround yourself with wise people that will challenge you, challenge your views, and force you to articulate why you are who you are. Reasonable people reason over things and are noble-minded enough to examine evidence that threatens their current lifestyle.
False teachers and corrupt leaders cannot strong-arm churches that are full of reasoning Christians thinking through their faith. Satan cannot overthrow faith that has been pinioned deeply into the Scriptures by free-thinking saints.
“Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of the mind, examining the Scriptures daily, whether these things were so.” (Acts 17:11)
