Apologetics

A friend quoted this to me in an e-mail three years ago. I learned alot from her wisdom and scholarship. She humbled me more than once. I was a tad bit too dogmatic back then. But she was patient with me and kind. And for that I will forever be thankful.

"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, Commentary on John 5:8
