Don't trust the snake's interpretation

"Since the early modern era, a number of historians and theologians have tried to demonstrate that the heretics--the innovators, the non-conformists, the protestors--were the truest and best imitators of Christ, no matter how far removed their doctrines might be from what he did and taught...It is not necessary to think that heretics are the truest Christians, or the best followers of Christ. Indeed, we should not, for to do so would be false."

Harold O. J. Brown, Heresies, p. 4
