In a world that tells us that we need to be tolerant, standing firm in your convictions is difficult. By voicing your opinion on a matter, you’ll face public criticism.
You’ll hear people cry out against you. You’ll be called a bigot or they’ll say you’re intolerant. Maybe even worse.
Convictions Are Crucial
I’ve had many friends over the years who claim to believe one thing only to completely change their opinions the next day.
It’s confusing. It’s frustrating. It’s hard to tell where they stand.
Over time, I began to wonder about these friends. They seemed to have strong convictions. Until they didn’t.
My opinion of them began to shift. Whenever I’d hear them spout off their beliefs, I secretly waited to hear them switch beliefs tomorrow.
