“Better to trust the man who is frequently in error than the one who is never in doubt.

Eric Sevareid

In him we were also chosen,[e] having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.

Ephesians 1:11-12 NIV
