“Such counterfeits [to faith] should be removed, not out of a love of destruction, but in order to leave room for the pure gold…” -J. Gresham Machen, Christianity and Liberalism
BTW NOTE: How many criticisms of theologians, traditions, or Christians have you seen that have matched this level of criteria–to see ‘pure gold’ come forth in some one else’s spiritual life? Often enough, it seems to be a love of destruction that motivates our critiques. In that, we do the devil’s work for him (while imagining ourselves to be faithful servants of Christ!).
