The other day I caught myself saying, “That’s what they say.” Then, I got to thinking. Who are ‘they?’ Why are ‘they’ the be all and end all? Are ‘they’ the experts on whatever we are talking about?
I guess it’s easier to say ‘that’s what they say’ than to have concrete evidence of what we are trying to prove. But is it okay to say that? Maybe it depends on the context or the subject being discussed. But then again maybe we need proof that what we are saying is fact.
The Bible says let our yes be yes and our no be no. That’s pretty straightforward. If we don’t know all the facts, maybe we should keep our mouths shut.
