Truth vs. Error

Truth doesn’t defeat error by waging a public relations campaign. The struggle between truth and error is spiritual warfare, and truth has no way to defeat falsehood except by exposing and refuting lies and false teaching. That calls for candor and clarity, boldness and precision- and sometimes more severity than congeniality. The fact the Nicodemus was the only [prominent] Pharisee to listen to Christ without being so offended that he turned completely against Him is no indictment of the way Jesus dealt with Israel’s chief religious leaders. Rather, it is a gauge of how truly evil their whole system was. …That becomes one of the central themes of all four gospel accounts. –John MacArthur, The Jesus You Can’t Ignore, 70-71
