“Orthodoxy, properly understood, does not shut down further thought, does not stop further discovery. No, orthodoxy actually is what makes deeper thought and further discovery possible. Discovering the first truth means you now have something you can build upon as you look for a second truth. For some reason people tend to think that the way forward—the thoughtful approach to life and doctrine—is to break down boundaries, toss out taboos, do away with doctrines. But that approach shuts down the possibility of deeper thought before it’s had the chance to grow.” — Trevin Wax
