Beware of Wikipedia

This first article (link) and this second article (link) about the first article, which were brought to my attention by Jim West, note that Wikipedia - while useful - should not be considered definitive. On certain matters, for example, one can expect to see the editors of Wikipedia conflicted against presenting the truth. In other instances, the force of the mob (hoi polloi) can have similar detrimental effects. One would not turn, for example, to Wikipedia for theological truth.

There is one infallible source of theological truth: the Word of God contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments.

Thanks be to God for Providing such truth to us!
