Nietzsche

Nietzsche says ..." Convictions are greater enemies of the Truth than lies"

Does anyone agree with this statement?

I think I have an inkling of what he might be getting at....

If convictions take hold in such a way that one believes them to be the truth....they can "block" out the ability to see beyond to the possibility that the conviction may encase lies.    The black/white with no greys.

During a time in my Christian walk, I took hold of things unexamined because others said they were _____ or ______.  However I wasn't fully convicted, so that left room for truth to come through and me to see beyond.

However, there are things I am convicted on and when I tap into that....I don't want to look beyond it....why?  Because it simply is and that is THAT!!!

Not sure if this is what you are seeking in asking the question. It is a good one and prods us to think & examine :-))))
