Being right isn't everything.
I'd rather be WRONG for a good reason (distrusting the MSM, using my brain, etc.) than right for a bad reason (always trusting the MSM).
Sure, Ggreg was right about RBG and I was wrong. But what about next time the MSM narrative seems to oppose the truth? Who is he going to side with then?
I still think it's quite strange that she disappeared for SO LONG and they didn't lift a finger to quell all the (well founded, understandable) rumors about her death.
But let's take it a level higher: we all want to be right, and we all want to be on THE WINNING SIDE, right? But how badly do you want to be on the winning side? Enough to join the Broad Path, the World, the team of satan? Because if you become a worldling, you will be on "the winning" side, and you can look down on the "losers" who live for Christ.
I think this RBG argument between Ggreg and I is a microcosm of the broader disagreement between us -- his embrace of the World and my rejection of it.
Following God and the truth will not always lead to *worldly success* or even the esteem of men. If you're after worldly acceptance, fame, and fortune, you have to make all kinds of compromises with the truth.
You're either after the truth FIRST, or being accepted by the world FIRST. Many times they conflict, so you have to choose which is your higher priority. I'd rather be wrong a few times while I seek the truth for its own sake, than always cling to the "majority opinion" so I'm considered "right" by the greatest number of people -- even though that position is often wrong in God's eyes.
