Quick Quote: Greg Koukl on Narrow-mindedness and Narrow Views

From the guys over at The Poached Egg:

Narrow-mindedness is different than having a narrow view. We have a narrow view. That is, we believe we are right in [our Christians convictions] and therefore other views are wrong. All of the claims of truth are narrow. Narrow-mindedness does not have to do with the view, it has to do with the person. It’s a vice of thinking. A narrow-minded person is a person who is stuck in his view and is not willing to consider alternate views. I have a narrow view, but I am certainly open to considering other people’s points of view and dealing with the evidence for it. – Gregory Koukl
