Andree Seu of World Magazine reminds us why we should hold opinions, but we should do it “loosely.”

In The Great Divorce, the shining Spirit divulges one of heaven’s secrets to an earthling still stuck on loveless opinionism: “That’s what we all find when we reach this country. We’ve all been wrong! That’s the great joke. There’s no need to go on pretending one was right! After that we begin living.”

The Lord “knows the secrets of the heart” (Psalm 44:21) and that’s what He cares about. Doctrine is good and love is better. How about a little kindness, please?

Us opinionated bloggers and blog readers would do well, regardless of our political or religious positions, to remember this. On this issue, I am “the chief of sinners.”
