Be Informed
“We ought to be as heedful against dangerous ideas as we are against dangerous people.”

Be Biblical
“Why are people so often so easily deceived by unwholesome writings? Because they are not guided by Holy Scripture.”

Be Encouraged
“Many feel that they are weak in the battle against the giants, the prominent men of our time. But if you are familiar with this one necessity, namely Scripture, you will always have a weapon with which to resist injustice.”

And Fight Liberalism
“So what is a radical? I will explain it by comparing him to something more familiar, a liberal. For simplicity’s sake, I will explain it in this way: a radical is a complete liberal in the same way that a liberal is a half-radical. A liberal is a radical who is stopped in his tracks. A radical is a liberal who, by virtue of suitable circumstances, was able to grow to maturity. Or, to put it even more briefly: liberalism is the seed of which radicalism is the fruit.”
