Beliefs matter.

Suppose we’re riding in a car together.  The GPS messes up, your cell phone dies and I forgot mine at home, and we find ourselves traveling down an abandoned country road.

Then the car breaks down.

We get of the car and walk down the road looking for help.

We walk a long ways and about midnight we see somebody walking towards us.

Is it politically correct for us to care what this person believes?  Maybe not.  Do we care about political correctness at this moment?  Not a bit.

Beliefs are not abstract, pie-in-the-sky, accessorizing gimmicks.

Beliefs matter.

Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ.  (Colossians 2:8, NLT)
