The Benefits of Heresy

July 10th, 2008 | 1 Comment | Quotes The Benefits of Heresy |  Facebook

“Though heresy in and of itself is a disfigurement and distortion and corruption of the truth and leads people into perilous error from which we may have eternal consequences and so therefore it’s a bad thing, yet within the providence of God, God will often use the wickedness of the heretic to call his church to a greater care and scrutiny of the truth. It’s like iron sharpens iron. It’s in the context of controversy. It’s in the context of conflict that positions are forced to be clarified and the church is forced to define her faith with even greater precision in order to avoid the distortions of the counterfeit.”
- R.C. Sproul
