“Believing, therefore that there is such a thing as truth, and such a thing as falsehood, that there are truths in the Bible, and that the Gospel consists in something definite which is to be believed by men, it becomes us to be decided as to what we teach, and to teach it in a decided manner. We have to deal with men who will be either lost or saved, and they certainly will not be saved by erroneous doctrine. We have to deal with God, whose servants we are, and he will not be honored by our delivering falsehoods; neither will he give us a reward and say, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant, thou hast mangled the gospel as judiciously as any man that lived before thee’.”
