Do You Have an Opinion?

Today I spent some time in Plato and I loved what he had to say about Opinions vs. Truth. Several years ago I wrote an article called "From Opinions to Principles" that's available for free at the Ten Boom Institute because I have been concerned for a long time that we are all full of opinions, but how much truth do we have? When you ask someone the question, "Do you have an opinion?" the answer is always, "Yes!" But when you look deeper to see if they have the truth, often it's missing. Next time you're tempted to share your opinion before being sure you also have the truth, consider Plato's advice:

"Do you not know that all mere opinions are bad, and the the best of them blind?"
