Fighting snakes barefoot

To stand or fight against false teaching in the church cannot leave us proud or complacent. If it does, we have not sufficiently fought against the false teaching in our own hearts, not sufficiently held on to the gospel in our own minds nor been shaped by it in our attitudes. The fighting of false teaching must come from love, and that not self-seeking or self-serving, but the love which lays down his life for his brothers, and who when they despise it, loves them still. Let us bind Ephesians 2.1-10 ever to our foreheads and our blog posts, so that we may be the strange sort of warrior of whom Philippians 2.1-13 is true.
