Allison: our vulnerability to heresy

Saturday, November 4, 2017
    And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
    —2 Corinthians 4:3-4 (NIV)
    We are susceptible to heretical teachings because, in one form or another, they nurture and reflect the way that we would have it be, rather than the way God has provided, which is infinitely better for us. As they lead us into the blind alleys of self-indulgence and escape from life, heresies pander to the most unworthy tendencies of the human heart.
    ... C. FitzSimons Allison (b. 1927), The Cruelty of Heresy, Harrisburg, Pa.: Morehead Publishing, 1994, p. 17 (see the book)
    See also 2 Cor. 4:3-4; 1 Kings 22:22; Isa. 6:10; Hos.13:6; John 12:40; 2 Cor. 3:14; 2 Tim. 4:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, prevent my desires from leading me away from Your truth.
