Heresy by AW Tozer - quote

"Heresy is not so much rejecting as selecting. The heretic simply selects

the parts of the Scripture he wants to emphasize and lets the rest go. This

is shown by the etymology of the word heresy and by the practice of the

heretic. "Beware," an editorial scribe of the fourteenth century warned his

readers in the preface to a book. "Beware thou take not one thing after thy

affection and liking, and leave another: for that is the condition of an

heretique. But take everything with other." The old scribe knew well how

prone we are to take to ourselves those parts of the truth that please us

and ignore the other parts. And that is heresy." -A. W. Tozer, We Travel An

Appointed Way.
