Thomas Adams on Error

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , , | Posted On Monday, September 12, 2011 at 8:00 AM

"There is difference betwixt error, schism, and heresy.  Error is when one holds a strong opinion alone; schism when many consent in their opinion; heresy runs further, and contends to root out the truth.  Error offends, but separates not; schism offends and separates; heresy offends, separates, and rageth.....
Error is weak, schism strong, heresy obstinate.  Error goes out, and often comes in again; schism comes not in, but makes a new church; heresy makes not a new church, but no church......Error is reproved and pitied, schism is reproved and punished, heresy is reproved and excommunicated.  Schism is in the same faith, heresy makes another faith.  Though they be thus distinguished, yet without God's preventing grace, one will run into another."


~Thomas Adams~

Posted by Miss Antoinette K. | Labels: , | Posted On Wednesday, September 7, 2011 at 8:00 AM

"The test of wisdom in the final analysis is to establish our life, thought, and action on the Rock Jesus Christ.  To do otherwise is to build on sand.  Gaining wisdom is in the daily act of changing and growing as we try to conform ourselves increasingly to His Word."

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , , | Posted On Friday, September 2, 2011 at 9:00 AM


"And, whilst I see the dangers that threaten ours from her intrigues and her arms, I am not so much alarmed as at the apprehension of her destroying the great pillars of all government and of social life, — I mean virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible. These are the tactics we should study. If we lose these, we are conquered, fallen indeed.
Patrick Henry

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, September 1, 2011 at 9:00 AM


"Are we at last brought to such a humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defence?  There is a wide difference between having our arms in our own possession and under our own direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defence be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own?"
Patrick Henry
