Why do we insist on things even when we know they are wrong?
Fear of being wrong is a major motivation for injustice in our world.
We fear looking foolish.
We fear losing respect.
We fear losing our position in society or our job.
This was a major motivation for Jesus' crucifixion.
The Pharisees feared losing their position as the Spiritual Shepherds of Israel.
And the Romans feared insurrection because Jesus was being hailed as the Messiah - the King of the Jews.
So do not be afraid of being wrong.
God will still love you.
And you may even earn the respect of society.
