The Word of God I think of as a straight edge, which shows up our own crookedness. We can't really tell how crooked our thinking is until we line it up with the straight edge of Scripture.
The only way for you to keep your mind straight is to run from those who would confuse you.
If you can't get to be uncommon through going straight, you'll never get to do it through going crooked. [..] live well and die happy.
