Do you believe everything?

Do you believe every things your leader tells you? We should be wise in validating on whether what they say is true, morally acceptable, biblical, etc. How do you decide whether what they said is true or acceptable? Do leaders have the final or total authority?

No matter who this person is be it business, work, religious or political leader, you should not give your 100% trust. I made that mistake once in believing a friend who I trusted with my whole life and almost lost it in an instant. I will never put that huge amount of trust with anyone anymore.

When I was a child, the minister at the church I attended told the congregation not to take his word on anything, but to do the research to be sure it was the truth. In Scripture we're told to "test the spirit." Since Satan is very clever, the smart person should never automatically believe, but should verify first.

Nope. My brain is inside my own skull for me to decide (maybe not completely on my own as we sometimes listen to advices) on my own or at least decide whom I should listen and follow at.

There are many things a boss may think is right but is not necessary right so that's why there are board meetings to decide which idea is the best. And I wish even in homes there were board meeting with the parents as the head and the children too so that they can decide with full understanding and maturity.

I will see with my own eyes before believing in something before someone said it. It may be true but I have to verify it by finding out the truth.

what kinda leader?religious ones? I'm Bahai and my leader says "believe what logic also accpets" I'd ratehr experience something if I can't decide wether or not it's true. If I can't do that, I'd play it safe and do what others do.

I just decide when it's true if I've thought about the subject. For instance someone told me something about what's hot regarding job hiring. I'll see to it first if what he/she said was true by searching for facts. I don't immediately take their word for it.
