Why Listen or Read People Who Believe Differently?

Here is an excerpt from Ed Stetzer’s blog: http://www.edstetzer.com/2012/09/cooperation-ecumenism-and-elit.html

“Yet, my view is that this impulse to only learn from people just like you often means you will never learn anything new– your presuppositions will not be challenged. You will never be challenged to consider opposing views or differing ideas. Furthermore, it fosters the belief that only members of your denomination are the real Christians. This can, and often does, lead to theological inbreeding and elitism. As a result, theological shallowness is all but guaranteed.”
