Why should one defend the Truth?

I would like to share a quote that has been givin to me. I know Origen was condemned as a heretic in the 6th century.....but he spoke something very true when he said:








quote:
"Today, under the pretext of knowledge (gnosis -> he is talking about Gnosticism), heretics rise against the Church of Christ. They pile on their books of commentaries. They claim to interpret the gospel and apostolic texts. If we are silent and do not oppose them with true teaching, famished souls will be fed with their abominations."
Origen (around the mid 3rd century)
