We should be careful that our loyalty to a person or an idea does not obstruct our view of reality and truth.
No matter the source, measure every endeavor proposed and planned, every person’s words and wisdom, every idea conceived and every answer postulated against the Holy Spirit’s desire to lead us into the heart of the Master’s message.
See 1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 (MSG):
Don’t suppress the Spirit, and don’t stifle those who have a word from the Master. On the other hand, don’t be gullible. Check out everything, and keep only what’s good. Throw out anything tainted with evil.
